Maternity leave is a natural pause in your career that gives you time to take stock and plan both your return to work and future career.
About this event
Do you feel daunted by the idea of returning to work after maternity leave? Or just want to make sure your return goes as smoothly as possible? Do you want to make sure your career doesn’t stall after maternity leave?
9 out of 10 mothers experience problems returning to work after maternity leave and a prolonged absence from work can reduce engagement, motivation and workplace wellbeing by as much as 20% when people return.
Maternity coaching helps both individuals and organisations manage the transition smoothly. Maternity coaching, and help with planning, ensures you make the right return to work plans and decisions to suit your individual circumstances.
