Currently around 54,000 mothers are leaving the UK workforce each year and the average cost to replace them is £30,000.
Recent research found that up to 77% of mothers report experiencing some form of discrimination while pregnant, on maternity leave or upon their return.
Being a working parent is tough. Too many parents are struggling to achieve a healthy balance between nurturing their families and thriving within the careers they love. Too many employers are losing talented people who happen to be parents; for a whole host of reasons. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Being part of an organisation that creates a conscious culture in which parents and carers are supported means employees experience reduced stress, improved wellbeing and increased motivation which translates into higher levels of performance, productivity, and commitment to their employer.
Please join us to find out more about how you could influence change in your workplace and learn about the tangible business benefits of supporting working parents and carers.
Ursula Tavender set up Mumbelievable in 2015 and now she’s on a mission to support and empower a million mums to rebuild their confidence and reconnect with themselves through her live events, online programmes and confidence-boosting products. She now support companies to engage and retain talented employees by developing bespoke in-house live events to help them regain confidence and manage the emotional and logistical demands of being a working parent so they can become happier and more successful.
