Unhappy parents are bad for business

By adminhatch

When we think about supporting parents at work, better parental leave policies should be just the beginning. We spoke to HR recruitment firm Elliott Scott about how we help organisations re-think their programmes, policies and practices so they can support parents in their teams in the moments that matter the most.

Urban Hatch founder, clinical midwife and coach Sofie Jacobs explains the importance of addressing not just parents (to be) themselves, but also their line managers, and doing so with a combination of tools that drive impact: digital programmes, educational sessions, and personal coaching.
