An innovative way to support the wellbeing of your staff

Getting the right supports in place before, during and after parental leave will:

  • reduce the loss of talent from the workplace

  • reduce recruitment and staff turnover costs

  • build loyalty

  • increase engagement and productivity

1:1 Corporate Coaching

1:1 Corporate Coaching Program

The Back to Work Coach Corporate Coaching

Women often report that the transition back to work after having a child is difficult and many feel disconnected and disengaged upon their return.

Rather than risk losing these talented and experienced women, proactive organisations are using this leave time to maintain and even strengthen the employment relationship and ensure a smooth and supportive transition back to work.

The Back To Work Coach assists organisations in their support and ongoing engagement of returning mums with our 1:1 Back To Work Corporate Coaching Program.

This specialised program includes:

  • Up to 8 x 1-hour sessions over a 12-month period

  • Unlimited email support

  • The option of either face-to-face or virtual (Skype / Zoom) sessions

  • A complimentary meeting with coachee and their manager / program sponsor with regards to reporting on coaching outcomes.

The program covers the following three phases of a mum's transition:

Before Parental Leave (1 session):

  • Preparing for meetings with your manager / HR staff, i.e.

    • What do you want / need to know about Parental Leave and flexible work options and policies

    • Preparing to handover your role before your leave begins

    • Type and frequency of communication while away

    • Use of 'Keeping In Touch' hours

During Parental Leave (5-6 sessions):

  • Defining your ideal home and work circumstances

  • Identifying your best-fit childcare solution and back-up plans

  • Understanding how to ask for what you need at home and at work

  • Developing negotiation, delegation and time management skills

  • Creating strategies to overcome guilt and build self-confidence

  • Establishing sustainable and fulfilling self-care routines

  • Creating a transition plan for returning to work

After Parental Leave (2-3 sessions):

  • Fine tuning your transition

  • Dealing with unexpected challenges

  • Sanity checking your plan’s sustainability

Getting the right supports in place before, during and after parental leave will reduce the loss of talent from the workplace, reduce recruitment and staff turnover costs, build loyalty, and reinforce all the inclusive elements of your culture you have worked so hard to establish. You will be rewarded with a workforce full of people - working-mums included - who recognise they are valued and who know they are supported in all phases of their life.
