A new survey by partner site workingmums.co.uk and Bright Horizons aims to find out how employers are dealing with the issues thrown up by the coronavirus pandemic, in particular those related to supporting working parents.
Working parents are facing a lot of different pressures at the moment, and so are employers.
workingmums.co.uk and Bright Horizons are keen to understand what employers are putting in place to support working parents, what the challenges are, and how we can all share best practice for the future.
This week they have launched a survey for employers covering everything from their experiences of managing remote working during lockdown, to any support they may have put in place for furloughed workers. The survey also aims to find out if employers are thinking long term about the future of the workplace and how it might change.
The survey seeks to find out which employees might return to work first and when that might be, and what kind of support is being put in place for both managers and employees to manage the transitions. The survey also asks about recruitment and redundancy plans as well as what employers are doing to implement any mental health support.
workingmums.co.uk will be sharing all the results over the coming weeks so that employers can get a broader idea of how organisations are managing these challenges.
