Retaining talent is essential to a business’ success. Maternity coaching is an essential tool for businesses to develop and retain their female talent. Our maternity coaching supports the transition of women through maternity and returning to work, offering one-to-one support before, during and after maternity and to facilitate other working transitions.
Why is maternity coaching important?
• Improves retention rates and helps realise organisation’s diversity strategy
• Reduced risk of “brain drain” of female talent
• Supports employees and employers in the transition – now and longer term
• Coaching through a transition facilitates a faster return to full productivity
• Attracts and retains loyal, high-achieving women and parents
• Coaching improves retention rates 12-24 months post- return.
We work closely with the London-based Executive Coaching Consultancy – the first to develop and launch a Maternity Coaching Programme in the UK – within a network of market-leading organisations to improve female retention and promote diversity strategies.
We offer one-to-one and workshop programmes before, during and after maternity and to facilitate other working transitions. Maternity Coaching supports high-achieving women to successfully manage this important transition in the context of their professional lives.
Maternity coaching programmes help women:
• Prepare for maternity
• Plan their return to work and the logistics involved
• Re-engage with work, successfully.
Maternity coaching through transition and career development is essential for building and reinforcing the female pipeline.
We are delighted to be working with the Executive Coaching Consultancy, who have pioneered this approach. For more information, contact us here.
Feedback to the Executive Coaching Consultancy from their clients:
“I would commend my personal experience of being coached around maternity leave – it was invaluable, as most organisations really do not think about supporting this transition. Working with an executive coach who is also a working mother provides an additional source of very useful advice.”
Catie Callender, Managing Director, Crabtree & Evelyn
“Our business is our people and it’s crucial that we retain them. It is important to us to support women in making the transition from work to maternity and back again. The ECC, through the provision of maternity coaching, helps us to do this and reduce the risk of losing our talent.”
