Many companies struggle to retain talent. Working Parent Stories is uniquely positioned to help.
The challenge is often multi-faceted. We help companies work toward eliminating some of the issues that cause working parents to leave their companies.
Often working mothers try to manage their careers like their fathers (who often had full-time "assistants" at home) while trying to mother like their stay-at-home moms. Some working fathers have few, if any, role models from dual-career couples. The challenge of managing a career and kids overwhelms some parents causing them to leave their jobs to focus on their families full time. We know that parents can succeed at work and at home, so we collect stories from those who are doing it. The stories are encouraging, inspiring, provocative, helpful and humorous. The stories start productive conversations that help companies and employees communicate to maximize business results and employee satisfaction.
We strive to help companies retain talent.
The following employee retention services are available:
- Guidance for executives and managers to help them retain talented employees and maximize their productivity
- Guidance for HR departments to help them design work environments and programs that nurture and retain working parents
- Encouragement for working parents to help them understand why they should pursue their careers with enthusiasm
