Frequently asked questions
Parent Scheme is designed for all phases of working parenthood, from those considering parenthood and in the parental leave years through to toddlers, primary school children and on to teenagers. It also provides content for managers and support for HR teams building their strategic plan for working parents.
The number of licences you need will depend on several factors including the size of your organisation, the demographic of your employees and number of parental leave takers each year. The HR model you operate may also be relevant to the level of line manager support that you require.
If you’re not sure, start small and you can always upgrade your plan.
The content is expert-led and has been created in conjunction with professionals in law, HR, medicine, educational psychology and career coaching. We use feedback from our clients and user trends to ensure we are constantly engaging with the issues that matter to working parents.
