Webinar: What it means to offer fertility support as an employer: the practicalities and benefits

Once a taboo topic in the workplace, an increasing number of leading employers are now looking to support employees with managing their fertility and getting on the road to parenthood. By understanding the impact of hormones on mental wellbeing and productivity, through to talent retention and career progression implications, employers stand to gain by being publicly open to caring about fertility.

In this webinar, the panel shares how employers with fertility support in place are using that benefit, what the advantages are and what to be aware of. They also discuss how they integrate fertility support into broader wellbeing packages and what this has meant for their HR and business culture.

The webinar explores key issues including: why we are seeing such a rise in fertility benefits; what the key areas of support are; ways of ensuring that support covers all employees; how workplace fertility support can dovetail with NHS and private medical insurance offerings; ways to support parents in their career progress and hold onto key talent; and the need to educate the broader workforce and line managers.

Chaired by REBA's director and co-founder, Debi O'Donovan, the panel included:

  • Alison Kanabe, SVP Head of Pensions and Benefits EMEA at Bank of America
  • Ian Rudkin, Head of Reward at McKesson
  • Hema Wara, HR & Client Services Director, Fertifa.
