Return to Work Coaching

Returning to work after having a child can be fraught with both practical and emotional challenges. Each person will have a different experience from the next and so it’s important to take a step back to create the best balance and strategies for sustaining it.

People who come back to work following leave are far more likely to stay with their organisation when they believe they are valued, understood, supported and wanted.
