To address your gender pay gap, it is not enough to just fix the women. If your gender pay gap is in favour of men, your people – women and men – likely face systemic biases, based on outdated assumptions not just around the traditional models of caring and employment, but about what today’s workers want from their work and family lives. Businesses that understand the new work-family mind-set are set for success, retaining and engaging the fathers they employ.
In this webinar our guest speaker Sarah Jackson, a leading expert on work-life issues in the UK, will discuss the latest research and best practice, including recent evidence from the Working Families/Bright Horizons Modern Families Index 2019. She will share insights about how to align your business objectives with the needs and aspirations of your people including:
- what do today’s men and women aspire to — at home, and at work?
- why are so many younger fathers looking around for a better employer?
- why is flexible working only part of the solution to their work-family imbalance?
Sarah Jackson OBE led the work-life charity Working Families for 24 years and was appointed OBE for services to quality of life issues in 2007. She is a highly experienced and compelling communicator, regular national media commentator, speaker, chair and influencer, who has been instrumental in shaping family-friendly policy, legislation and public attitudes for over two decades.
