The Whole Employee: How to Support Caregiving Parents in the Workplace for Transformation, Productivity, and Belonging | Sessions
Renowned family engagement author, educator, and business leader Pam Allyn will share practical and motivational ways we can support working parents in the workplace, leveraging their strengths and creating an integration model for their work life. Beyond providing yoga apps and ping pong tables, today’s employees want something more, something deeper: they want to be seen as a whole person, not split between home and work, but leveraging one with the other to create great outcomes everywhere. Yet in the workplace, we tend to see the push/pull of our employees’ lives as a detriment, a distraction. Let’s turn this idea on its head: the adage says that busy people get the most work done, and this is true of our working caregivers: but in order for this to happen, we must create the conditions that will work for them and for us. Pam Allyn will share a signature “WHOLE” approach to managing and igniting the drive of caregivers, a user-friendly protocol to help leaders navigate the terrain of the working caregiver and to make your company a place everyone wants to be.
