Workplace training and consultancy

One in four pregnancies is estimated to end in miscarriage. The majority of those affected will be in employment.

Our research, backed up by a major report from the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Professional Development), shows a lack of support from employers and managers can mean reduced productivity, lower standards of work, increased absence and even resignation.

Thoughtful support and management, on the other hand, can make a real difference to how women and partners cope and can enhance an employee’s motivation and commitment.

Our training and consultancy programme equips managers with the skills they need to best support a staff member at this often very difficult and distressing time.

We’ve worked with Co-op, Channel 4, Direct Line, Southeastern Railway, Atkins, Ipsos Mori and many others on their approach to pregnancy loss and the workplace.

Here’s how we can help your organisation, too.
