Have you got people working for you who are expectant/ new parents?
Did you know there is a 9 in 10 chance new mothers will struggle with the return to work?
Are you aware there is a 1 in 5 chance they may find it necessary to leave the workforce after having a baby?
The cost of replacing an employee is estimated at 30k – recruitment and training costs plus up to 24 weeks lost productivity whilst new recruits get up to speed.
Research suggests that organisations which have more women in senior positions perform significantly better than those which don’t. Therefore there are considerable advantages to preserving the female talent pipeline.
Shockingly 70% of new mothers now report experiencing mental health problems during or after pregnancy. As many as 1 in 3 dads also suffer, but most parents are suffering in silence as only a fifth seek medical support. 1 in 10 parents say their perinatal mental health negatively impacted their work performance.
7.6% of sickness absence is attributed to stress, depression, and anxiety annually in the UK. This equates to 14.3 million lost working days per year. Analysis by Deloitte, found that poor mental health costs UK employers up to £45 billion each year. For every £1 spent by employers on mental health interventions they’ll get £5 back in reduced absence, presenteeism and staff turnover.
Parental leave can pose worries for employers and for the individual. At WorkBabyLife we offer a series of workshops and one-to-one sessions to support organisations to better manage these transitions and retain talent.
