[email protected] and Polaris Coaching continue their successful ‘Career After Kids’ Seminars in 2012 helping leaders in organisations understand the support required surrounding parental leave. By showing leaders the know-how to manage working mums and dads and helping them put in place support programs, they can retain employees long-term.

It is a great sign that many organisations are jumping on board to offer flexible working conditions and ties in with the Diversity Council Australia research, which reveals leading employers who provide flexible working and have good paid parental leave policies are getting returns on their investment. In a survey on paid parental leave and return to work provisions of DCA members, many of whom are Australia’s business diversity leaders and biggest employers, DCA found 91% of organisations had a policy to provide paid parental leave and 96% offered part-time/reduced hours. The average return to work rate from parental leave was 89%.

Director of [email protected], Emma Walsh says that “organisations are increasingly recognising that paid parental leave alone isn’t enough to make returning parents feel supported and equipped as they tackle the challenges of work and raising family. Rather it’s the chance to connect with other working parents and having access to coaching, while on leave and once returned, to discuss ways to manage the work life juggle, that makes all the difference.”

‘CAREER AFTER KIDS’ (CAK) SEMINAR
‘Career After Kids’ is a 2.5hr seminar designed exclusively for mums and dads to:
Plan and prepare to re-enter the workplace
Review their career and explore flexible work options
Create work/life happiness and manage their career as a working parent

It is a wonderful beginning for working parents to start to realise their needs as working parents and begin to put together their individual plan of making career work with kids.

All the parents who attend CAK leave with a sense of empowerment, a return to work plan and ideas about how to achieve their successful return to work. The next 'Career After Kids' Seminar will be held on Tuesday 18 September 2012 in Melbourne and we are delighted that The Westpac Group are our corporate sponsors again. The next Sydney Seminar will follow on 23rd October. Enrolments can be made through the website:
www.careerafterkids.com.au and until 10 August take advantage of our early bird special.
