They delve into the challenges faced by parents in balancing work commitments with family responsibilities, emphasising the importance of flexible work arrangements and clear communication.

Instances of mismatched expectations during the hiring process are discussed, underscoring the need for honesty and transparency. This can be a critical moment for encouraging people to choose your organisation over another, when skills are short.

The conversation also touches on the impact of social activities that seem great fun, but are actually not inclusive for people with caring roles – and their impact on team dynamics.

Sian discusses the significance of understanding and accommodating employees returning from parental or caregiving leave – and the benefit of doing that, on your bottom line! Throughout the discussion, themes of empathy, continuous dialogue, and challenging assumptions emerge, highlighting the importance of creating an inclusive and supportive work culture.
