Connecting with colleagues: Creating a reproductive health network

How can you create a workplace support system for colleagues who are struggling to start or add to their family?

In the UK today there are six million employees suffering fertility challenges. With 88% of those who feel unsupported at work at risk of quitting their jobs, it is vital that employers tackle the stigma and help employees access much-needed support.

It can be a difficult decision for employees to share their personal fertility struggles with their employer, but having someone to speak to within the workplace can go a long way to easing their anxieties. That someone doesn’t need to be their line manager or HR – it can be a colleague, who has experienced something similar and can share tips and advice, or just be a sounding board.

In this webinar, Workplace Fertility Community committee members, Hortense Thorpe (Founder, Centrica’s Fertility Group Network) and Helen Burgess (Employment Law Partner, Shoosmiths) and guest panellist, Paul Breach (Co-Chair, Natwest Group’s Fertility & Loss Network), will share tried and tested approaches for creating employee support systems in organisations of various sizes, as well as practicalities to consider when implementing a support network.

This video helps you:

  1. Understand why workplace reproductive health support systems matter
  2. Learn what other companies are doing to support employees
  3. Become equipped to set up a reproductive health support network in your organisation
