Why it matters

Becoming a parent is the most critical risk point for retention in an employee’s career journey. Supporting this complex transition sets prospective parents and their managers up for long-term success as the journey begins.

Our coaches are specialists in the field of parental transitions. Their expertise is built into the content of our innovative Parental Leave Toolkit, an app which offers timely advice and customised prompts, and a self-service knowledge base to support successful transitions at each step. There's live interaction with our coaches during monthly online drop-in sessions, which provide opportunities for questions to be answered and experiences to be shared.

Many of our clients choose to enhance the Parental Leave Toolkit and offer group and/or 1-1 coaching, designed to meet the specific needs of the organisation.

Bright Horizons Work+Family Solutions - Parental Leave Transitions, The Moments That Matter

The Moments That Matter

With its focus on effective communication and building confidence, coaching is highly effective in supporting other life transitions beyond the parental leave experience. We have developed tailored coaching programmes for our clients on many major life events - for example becoming a carer, marital breakdown, and bereavement. Having experienced coaching over a third of employees said coaching made them feel better equipped to manage their ongoing career and balance their work and family lives.
