10:30am - 11:15am

Much has changed in the last few years. Here are just a few trends:

Employees have become more vocal about their expectations for work life balance; smart and personalised tech is expected as standard by consumers; flexibility is set to become a day 1 right; parents have ongoing worries about educational catch up; childcare has been recognised as part of the infrastructure under the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill while it’s harder for parents to source the care they need. And of course, we can’t unsee all the aspects of family life we saw on camera in the pandemic: employees now bring more of themselves to work.

How can employers leverage the best of technology and the best of people to create a world-class employee experience when it comes to supporting family life?

We’ll hear how different employers are making this work in different ways, whether through onsite nurseries with smart technology keeping parents in touch with their child’s day or globally scaled toolkits for managing parental leave, with real people ready to coach and chat, or networks that combine the best of online and in-person connections.

During this interactive, virtual workshop, you will hear:

  • Timely insights into emerging needs and trends from the 2023 Modern Families Index research

  • Examples of leading employers’ programmes to support family life using both online and in-person support

  • How savvy HR professionals demonstrate Return on Investment from supporting family life in digital and people-led ways
