Bosses Learn How To Be Family Friendly

Employers from Coventry and Warwickshire will gather in the city next week to find out how to become more family friendly in dealing with their staff.

Information has been put together by Coventry City Council and Warwickshire County Council to explain how to make it easier for parents to carry on working.

Eighty employers will be at The Chamber of Commerce, Training and Enterprise on Tuesday for the launch of the resources, which includes a poster and a leaflet.

Teams that have been set up in Coventry and Warwickshire to provide free information to employers, parents and childcare providers.

Cllr Dave Batten, cabinet member (Development and Renewal), said:

"Juggling a family and a career can be difficult and stressful and at times near impossible. But that's where employers come in.

“They have a key role to play in making it easier for parents and carers to work and the investment they make in their employees is the most important investment they can make.

“And there are benefits for the companies too - productivity and moral will increase, levels of sick leave will fall and they will widen the recruitment pool and help retain staff.

“This important launch will point local employers in the right direction, so they know exactly where to go to get good quality information and support so they can make the right choices for them as businesses and for their existing and potential employees.

“And the fact that over 80 companies are attending shows just how much of an important issue this is." 

The Children's Information Teams in Coventry has an up-to-date reference library and a huge database of information and advice on local childcare provision, childcare options and what's new on the legislation front.
