What to expect:

Over the 3-month group coaching programme your returners will develop the skills and mindset  to come back to their jobs confident and motivated.

The programme is delivered in small cohorts of 8 returners over bi-weekly zoom calls. Participants also have two fully bespoke one to one coaching sessions. 

Grounded in practical action, expert guidance and a sense of community the programme is a resource to bring your new parents back in a positive empowered way.

Your returners will be able to:

  • Connect with others, share experiences, and learn from each other as they experience this transition together.

  • Access practical tools and resources as they navigate change and uncertainty.

  • Benefit from personalised coaching to help them unpick the knotty challenges they may be facing.

  • Take control of having a positive return to work experience and continue unlocking their potential at work.

Having the space to anticipate both professional and personal challenges, and receiving guidance on how to navigate them made all the difference to my maternity return.

Is my organisation a good fit for the returners launchpad?

If you find yourself nodding along to two or more of these statements, then your organisation might just be the perfect fit for the Returners Launchpad.

  • I recognise that returning parents may struggle with confidence and want to actively show support during this pivotal time.

  • I want to advocate for new ways to create a family-friendly workplace, with coaching as one vital component.

  • I understand the people have a personal life as well as professional commitments and ambition and strive to help returners integrate both in a sustainable way.

  • I've witnessed firsthand that a great parental leave pay policy and time off aren't sufficient to retain top talent through family leave.


How much does the programme cost?

The investment for the The Returners Launchpad is £1400 (Includes VAT) with 25% discount if you are paying for yourself.
