10:30am - 11:15am

New research from Bright Horizons is set to show that parents and carers are considering leaving the workforce at twice the rate of the wider employee group. Looking for better family support is a key driver.

Meanwhile, as HR leaders, has our attention shifted away from work-life balance as we grapple with the drive for productivity, collaboration and upskilling in a tech-driven workplace?

With the jobs market still tight, working parents and carers look set to vote with their feet. What will the best employers be doing in the Future of Work to ensure their top performers - and whole diverse workforces – have fulfilling lives outside of work as well as delivering on their work targets?

Join this lively, virtual conversation, as Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership with Bright Horizons convenes a panel of leading employers and thinkers to unpack practical learnings.

During this workshop, you will:

  • Hear the latest research from 3,000 UK parents and carers revealing their expectations of employers in terms of work-life balance.

  • Gain future-focused insights into the options to enable a healthy home life and a productive work life.

  • Take away actionable tips and advice for your own workforce
