Dive In Webinar - Having Better Work & Family Conversations: Strategies, top tips and practical action
27 September, 10:00 - 11:00
Online (10:00-11:00 British Summer Time), Webinar
Talented and committed employees can end up feeling ‘alienated’ when family commitments are not handled well at work. Managers may worry about asking too much or communicating too little with new parents. Individuals who look for more flexibility around family may feel side-lined from key projects; or that their career is stagnating. What do managers need to think about when team members are balancing work with family commitments?
The webinar takes a look at best practice for individuals and managers and the significance of the manager-employee relationship in making the integration of work and family a success. We will explore some of the common challenges and sticking points in conversations about combining career with parenting and identify strategies that work for both the employer and the working parent.
