It is vital that your managers understand and accept their responsibility to support workers who are going on, or returning from, maternity leave. Otherwise you will lose talented women you could have retained, and will certainly never meet your gender diversity goals. Training managers to play their part, by supporting maternity leavers, is a crucial part of your diversity strategy.
Socrates has joined forces with the Working Parent Company to produce lively online training to help your managers be more effective in this area. It will repay itself many times over through the increased retention of talented staff. Call us for a trial to see how it can help your organisation.
The training includes the following elements.
