By Robyn Tongol | |2 minute read

Instilling meaningful measures for your employees can help ensure they feel supported, even outside of the office.

In the lead-up to National Families Week next week, host Emma Musgrave was joined by Emma Walsh, founder of Family Friendly Workplaces and the CEO of Parents at Work, to discuss the importance of leaders being considerate of employee commitments at home.

Emma Walsh shares the biggest trends she sees play out when it comes to supporting parents and other carers, including how the pandemic and rising cost of living have contributed to greater implementation of key policies in Australian businesses.

She also gives her thoughts on what more needs to be done at a government level to support people and her top tips for businesses obtaining family-friendly certification.

National Families Week will be held from 15 to 23 May. To learn more about the event, or to register your interest, visit here:
