Lunch & Learn: Supporting the wellbeing of your employees in early parenthood
Becoming a parent can be a turbulent time, with the most exhilarating of emotions combined with feelings of being overwhelmed, exhausted, and anxious. However, there is so much that employers can do during this time to support their employees, both financially and emotionally, which not only helps improve the lives of the new parents, but also increases engagement, productivity and retention at work.
At the current level of UK statutory maternity pay, a new parent on a £30k annual salary can see a drop in earnings of 58% over the first 33 weeks. However, it’s not only financially preparedness where employees may need support, as new parents can experience feelings of loneliness and anxiety from the physical and social demands of looking after a young child.
In fact, a lack of understanding, support and flexibility for new parents, particularly mothers, exacerbates problems of female representation within senior positions at organisations; one of the key reasons for the gender pay gap in the UK.
