Line Manager Webinars
A line management briefing session provides managers with the opportunity to consider the importance of managing employees through the different stages of parental breaks.
The important role of the line manager in managing their employees through maternity leave should not be under-estimated. Line managers have a real opportunity to support their direct reports as they experience this transition, across three key stages; pre-leave, during-leave and post-leave.
Many women experience stress and anxiety in the run up to their leave as they try to finish their work and prepare for the baby’s arrival. They then feel isolated and invisible during their maternity leave, and can benefit hugely from being connected with their colleagues during ‘Keeping In Touch’ days. And their return to work needs to be sensitively handled in order to ensure you get the best out of them.
This line management briefing sessions provides managers with the opportunity to consider the importance of managing employees through these different stages of maternity leave. The session focuses on practicalities such as managing the transition, getting the best out of ‘Keeping In Touch’ days, providing meaningful work on return to the workplace and increasing understanding of the experience of the new parent-employee. Managers themselves can also benefit from sharing their experiences at this time.
