In the Workplace
“Hi, I just wanted to let you know that the parenting seminar was fantastic. Other attendees agreed as well. I thought the things she went over…really built my confidence in terms of managing difficult situations/people/family. Loved it.
BLG Ottawa workshop participant”
Kathy is an experienced workshop presenter and keynote speaker. She can also offer ongoing services within your workplace.
Kathy works with progressive employers who understand the high cost of dysfunctional homes among their workers. Family-friendly strategies such as flex time, telecommuting and job sharing are helpful, but helping workers increase their understanding, skills and awareness as parents can dramatically increase their effectiveness on the job.
Retaining employees can save business millions of dollars. Workplaces with strong wellness programs find that employee retention is heightened. A growing number of employees are also parents and while family friendly policies such as flex time, telecommuting and job sharing do reduce the stress on parents raising children, training about the actual job of parenting is most beneficial. After all, having more time with children and more knowledge and skills reduces stress and creates healthier employees and parents.
Kathy’s program in your workplace can help:
- decrease absenteeism
- fewer family disruptions during the workday
- reduce stress leave
- increase staff loyalty
- Increase employee retention
Enhance staff communications:
Kathy can provide a series of parenting education articles for your staff newsletters. These articles will be delivered camera-ready or electronically and can be reproduced as needed.
