Maternity Coaching

Retaining Your Key Women

Are you doing all you can to ensure your "maternity leavers" become "maternity returners"?

Maternity Coaching supports high-achieving women to successfully manage this important transition in the context of their professional lives.

We work alongside market-leading organisations to improve retention and realise their diversity strategies.

Key issues faced by businesses and why maternity coaching helps fill the gap:

  • “Brain drain” of female talent causing talent gap
  • Cost of losing women at their peak – training costs vary but one client put the costs to train to senior level at 200k. A leading law firm client has seen retention rates improve after introducing maternity coaching from 78% to 90%.
  • Improves retention and helps support a faster return to full productivity post transition. A major investment bank client now has a return rate post maternity of 90%.
  • Importance of strong employer brand that attracts best employees

We provide one-to-one coaching and workshop programmes to support businesses and employees before, during and after maternity.
