Theme: Corporates and Women Professionals - dealing with the Maternity Phase back

It’s a fact of life that at some point, one of the women employees will share this news with her manager that she is expecting a baby. Training line managers to be sensitive and understanding towards their women colleagues during times of pregnancy helps in building an inclusive and engaging work environment. The decision to return to work after having a baby is a complex one and research tells us that over 60% of women are unsure about the decision to stay or leave. A good relationship between an employee and her line manager is essential for the successful reintegration of the employee following maternity leave. How the organisation supports them through the process can help them remain engaged, and research has shown that the line manager relationship is the most significant factor in retaining maternity returners.
