Supporting Working Parents - with Jennifer McClellan

The HR Uprising Podcast

Lucinda is joined by Jennifer McClellan, an HR business partner at Atkins, to discuss a highly topical issue - that of supporting working parents, and how failing to do so can negatively impact our organisations and our business sector as a whole. KEY TAKEAWAYS Supporting women returning from maternity leave is crucial in order to help workplaces attain the right gender balance. If we are losing people after this leave, then we not only lose the skills, but also dilute the diversity of our organisation. There are far more factors that can play into the balancing of working parents, from even such topics as the politics of children's parties to work-related requests that can benefit family life. The issues do not stop once the child has been born. When factors impact us outside of work, we can often find ourselves bringing in those negatives into the workplace. External factors can greatly impact the way we work. We must understand that rules and principles that may have been created some time ago, may not apply to the new world of today. If regulations prohibit the ease of parental support, then it may be time to re-evaluate those rules. BEST MOMENTS 'I've been able to see some of the things that work really well, and some of the things where could do things better' 'We want people to be themselves at work' 'We need a real appreciation of people's circumstances' VALUABLE RESOURCES The HR Uprising Podcast | Apple | Spotify | Stitcher The HR Uprising LinkedIn Group How to Prioritise Self-Care (The HR Uprising) How To Be A Change Superhero - by Lucinda Carney HR Uprising Mastermind - https://hruprising.com/mastermind/ www.changesuperhero.com www.hruprising.com Jennifer McClellan LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/askjmcc/?originalSubdomain=uk About The Guest, Jennifer McClellan Jennifer McClellan is an experienced Human Resources Business Partner at SNC-Lavalin’s Atkins business, a world-leading design, engineering and project management consultancy.   She is also passionate about creating inclusive and collaborative environments that enable curiosity, innovation and ultimately deliver positive commercial outcomes.
