How to underpin wellbeing as a family-friendly employer in the hybrid world of work
Well over half of your employees will now rate family life as a higher priority since the pandemic began, according to research by Bright Horizons. People who rate their employer as family-friendly also report higher engagement, productivity, loyalty and wellbeing.

There are practical steps you can take to improve the experience of working parents and carers and strengthen your position as an employer that supports wellbeing and a leader in talent attraction and retention.

If you want to understand how to be a family-inclusive employer in a new world of work, join us on Tuesday 5th July from 11.00am – 12.00 noon for a free to attend interactive Make A Difference webinar in association with Bright Horizons including:

· Fresh approaches to easing the emotional load of being a parent

Featuring expert speakers:

> Jennifer Liston Smith – Head of Thought Leadership
