Shared Parental Leave and the Business Case for Supporting Dads at Work

If you would like to learn more about why and how to support your dads at work through policy and practice, then Gravitate HR would like to cordially invite you to attend our Lunch and Learn seminar on Shared Parental Leave and the business case for supporting dads at work this May.

There has been recent coverage in the media of dads not using Shared Parental Leave. Mums don’t want to share their time off and let’s face it why should they? Do we really want dads to take time off work to look after children costing business money?

2016 is Year of the Dad in Scotland which gives us an opportunity to think about how men engage with home life alongside their work, how; home life affects our performance at work, and; will examine the potential benefits not only for children and mothers, but also for the workplace.

Sam Pringle, CEO of Fathers Network Scotland is also Leadership Coach and a founder of Family Friendly Working Scotland.  Sam will facilitate the session to share evidence of the positive impact an active dad has on outcomes for families and business.

Please join us to celebrate the difference a great dad can make at home and at work; bust some myths about fatherhood, and explore what you can do in your workplace to make it more productive by being dad friendly.

If this is a subject which interests you and you feel you just can’t quite wait for the seminar, then please feel welcome to read more about the topic by clicking here to read the blog.

Complementary lunch will also be provided.  If you have any specific dietry requirements please let us know by emailing
