We offer a three-part process that gives you insight about the status of dads in your organisation, and then engages them ongoing.

First we listen and learn. We ask the right questions, and then feed back the status of dads to your executive team.

Second, we inform and inspire your teams with the flexible working options on offer, as well as the latest thinking on how to make the glorious mess of modern parenting work.

We engage and energise an important new line of communication with tailored content.

HOW YOUR COMPANY WILL BENEFIT

The benefits for your business in stepping up to support their dads will be far-reaching. Multiple studies have shown that companies that adopt forward-thinking parental leave policies and flexible work options for parents have higher employee engagement and retention; higher employee productivity and a lower rates of absenteeism. For companies looking to retain their talent, policies that allow for work-life balance are critical to the bottom line.

CUT RECRUITMENT COSTS

Research from the Centre for American Progress found it costs approximately 20 per cent of an employees’ salary to replace them. The study revealed that the costs of high turnover levels can potentially be avoided by implementing basic workplace flexibility and parental leave policies.

INCENTIVISE STAFF

“Parenting perks provided a stronger incentive to stay with the company than increased salary,” reported the Harvard Business Review looking at new research from Edinburgh University into family leave policies and parenting culture in Scotland. Flexibility is becoming the ultimate perk.

BOOST EQUALITY IN THE WORKFORCE

A Swiss study in 2014 showed that if parental leave policies are available to each parent, it enables a more equal division of work between women and men by fostering parental involvement in the care of the child.
