Our Solutions

Return to Work Coaching

There are many events that have a major impact on our employees’ lives and having a child is at or near the top. Not only does starting or expanding a family significantly change personal priorities but the mental burden of maintaining both a career and family life can take its toll too, with 1 in 5 parents stalling their careers for family reasons and more than 1 in 10 refusing a new job because of a lack of work life balance opportunities.

Today, families are looking for organisations and roles where they can bring their whole selves to work and have the personal and professional life that they want.

At Bright Horizons we’re proud to offer Return to Work coaching through our expert partners for all parent employees and their managers. Coaching is delivered both in groups and on a one-to-one basis, and is support by a rich online platform and manager coaching.

Combined, this approach prepares your employees for a smooth transition into their parental leave, and a confident return.

Specialist Coaches

Our coaches are specialists in the field of working parenthood, with over 700 years’ experience combined. Each coach is highly qualified in facilitating, coaching and consulting, and with a successful business career prior to entering the coaching profession they are able to understand and support each client’s unique requirements and help them reach their goals.

Our coaches are also international and have a vast knowledge of different geographies, providing local support to a global workforce.

Combining Coaching and Practical Support

Supporting and retaining talented employees is crucial during periods of change in their lives. Practical help and support can ensure your employees feel valued and are resilient to the changes that may be happening around them.

Combining coaching and practical support, with initiatives such as workplace nurseries or back-up care, ensures your employees have the emotional and practical help to return to work or keep them from leaving.

At Bright Horizons, we’re uniquely qualified to provide your employees with coaching services in addition to our award-winning Bright Horizons Back Up Care child and adult care programme and our workplace nursery expertise.
