In this podcast we hear personal experiences from our guests and discover practical advice and tips for employers from an Inclusive Employers expert.
Data shows that seven million people in the UK are parents and carers. Flexible and family friendly working is increasingly valued by employees throughout their careers and 59% of working parents said they needed to factor childcare options into decision making about whether or not to accept a new job or promotion.
Our host, Steven Copsey, is joined by guests Simon Jones, a parent of a 3 year old, and Kate Harris, a parent of three children aged 16, 15 and 11, one of whom has Down's Syndrome. Providing the expert voice is our Head of Inclusion & Diversity Services (North), Rosie Clarke, who has recently had her first baby, Euan.
