Event description
Talent-management opportunity - Supporting your employees transitioning back to work following maternity leave

About this Event

Maternity leave is more than a short term operational issue, it is a significant talent-management opportunity for employers.

• 63% of women transitioning to work following maternity leave said they were apprehensive, 22% admitted to being devastated - *Recruit Ireland 2015 survey

This is an opportunity for employers to invite your employees to attend the “Managing your Career, Motherhood and You” workshop.

If you are an employer who wants to:

• Retain female talent following maternity leave

• Align your agenda with gender diversity

• Help employees return to productivity much faster

• Be recognised as an employer of choice

• Have engaged, loyal employees who feel valued,

then by investing in your employees, you are acknowledging that re-boarding is a transition that can be a challenging time. It also shows that you understand your people and want to support them through it so that they are successful.

This workshop is for employees who are on maternity leave or have recently returned to work within 1 year following maternity leave.

What we will cover:

• Understand change and learn to navigate through it be it in your personal or professional life

• Understand your personal and professional identity as a working parent

• Build your confidence

• Re-connect and build your professional network

• Assess your current work-life balance and identify strategies to achieve work-life harmony

• Create a winning team to attain work life harmony

• Practice key principles of promoting well-being and develop a personal well-being plan.

‘Managing your Career, Motherhood and You’ workshop is for you, if you want to:

• Learn how you can be a successful working parent

• Understand and own your value as a working parent

• Re-build your confidence

• Develop your personal and professional network to support and align with your vision of success

• Develop a plan for work life harmony

• Increase your awareness and identify ways to get out of your own way!

• Prioritise and create a plan for your well-being.

And there is more….

You will be part of a group of working mums who are also in a similar situation. You will get to share and hear others' experience which is invaluable. It is a safe learning environment with a focus on finding solutions.
