Practical wellbeing strategies to empower working parents and carers

Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at Bright Horizons Work+Family Solutions, speaks at the Employee Wellbeing Congress 2022.

This 20-minute video from the Employee Wellbeing Congress offers practical wellbeing strategies to empower working parents and carers.

When we talk about everyday wellbeing, for working parents and carers this means more than their own mental or physical health. It’s about practical, hands-on solutions for family alongside work.

This video explores how childcare and eldercare benefits provision has moved beyond providing an absence management solution to becoming an important part of supporting the day-to-day wellbeing of employees. For example, many employers have started enabling their employees to use back-up care to provide virtual tutoring for children – a trend that demonstrates how wellbeing, and talent retention, have now become the key drivers in provision rather than purely absence management and covering care gaps.

  • Get under the skin of the latest research (Modern Families Index and Work+Family Snapshot), highlighting emerging trends
  • Hear how the best employers are evolving their childcare and eldercare provision to support the everyday wellbeing needs of working parents and carers.
  • Take away ideas on practical steps employers can take to help employees navigate the new world of work and the changing world we live in, whether creating networks, equipping managers, signposting available resources or specific benefits such as coaching and care provision.

Liston-Smith ran out of time to answer all of the questions raised during her session. You can download her written responses to these questions below.
