Do Company Cultures Support Working Parents?

Season 2 / Episode 3
Make it Thrive: The Company Culture Podcast

On this episode of Make it Thrive: The Company Culture podcast  I’m talking to Amy Bull Creative Content Manager at Media Matters. Today we’re diving into the topic of being a working parent, and whether organisations are doing enough to support parents in the workplace.

As so many of you listening are probably juggling the life of a parent and a career, I hope that this conversation today gives you some practical tips, and if you’ve heard anything that you’d love to comment on please do give us a tweet or send me an email.

In this episode we cover;

  • The work-life juggle of parents.
  • The gender-pay-gap.
  • Returning to work after having a child.
  • How company culture can support new parents and working parents.
  • The benefit of flexible working in company culture.

Notes;

  • Going back to work after a child can also provide many benefits.
  • More companies need to consider family-friendly workplace policies.
  • Employees should speak-up when they are struggling as they can make a change and influence a companies culture.
  • Sometimes having a child can force you to create that work-life balance.
  • Companies must stop treating parents resentfully when taking time off to care for a child.
