A solution that works for everyone

The "back in the driving seat" workshop was very insightful. After returning back to work from maternity leave three months ago, it gave me a boost in how to get my career back on track. I have since used the tools to reflect on my current position and how to get to where I want in my career."

Group Coaching Attendee

This is a great service which brings some guidance and advice. Before the session I felt like the who maternity leave was quite daunting. The Parental Leave Coaching made me feel calm and prepared for any challenges I felt I would face and I feel confident that my transition back to work will be smooth."

Finance Sector Professional

(The Coach) provided me with the tools to transform my thinking from 'This is unmanageable' and 'I can't do this' to 'This is a learning opportunity' and 'I am doing the best I can at this moment'. It really helped me to develop more confidence and take a more positive outlook in the workplace."

We chose to work with Bright Horizons because it offered services that would address our need to support staff with childcare needs. Bright Horizons offered the most flexible service in terms of Emergency Childcare, giving our employees the option of having a temporary nanny in their own home, or using a registered childminder or nursery close to their home or close to the office.
