Making a Success of Blended Working for your Working Parents & Carers
Date: Thursday, 4th February 2021
As we embrace a new world of hybrid work styles, what do employers need to do, to ensure success? Paying practical attention to working parents and carers is one important piece of the puzzle.
We have a greater awareness than ever of the challenges in balancing careers with home life as the pandemic quite literally revealed the backdrop to our employees’ lives. We’ve learned that employees can be trusted to deliver remotely and that there are work-life gains without a commute.
On the other hand, people need people and some people’s homes are not ideal workspaces. Bright Horizons’ research with working parents and carers suggests most will favour a blend of workplace in the future – onsite and offsite – where their roles allow.
What are the quick wins and the strategic moves in this area that support wellbeing, work-life balance and deliverables ongoing? Watch and listen to our Head of Thought Leadership, Jennifer Liston-Smith along with our panelists on what works in managing hybrid working in inclusive high-performance cultures:
