The Portal

Welcome to the Parent and Professional Career Management Portal

Our state-of-the art online platform is designed to support employees through family transitions. It offers interactive e-learning content. Users can either work their way through all of the content in order, and then download a certificate of completion; or some may prefer to dip in and out of the modules, depending on the area of interest and time available.

Expectant and new parents will benefit from interactive exercises, videos, checklists and case studies. Managers have access to their own modules, which focuses on concise, just-in-time support for those who need a refresher on how to best support a team member through their journey to parenthood and their return to work.

The user experience:

3 modules for parents:

Pre-parental leave

Offers ideas, tools and tips to support team members through the transition at work to parenthood such as ways to manage change, strengthen relationships at work and devise handover & keeping in touch plans.

During parental leave

Helps team members plan the transition back to work. The exercises, articles, videos and audio clips will help employees comprehensively consider all of the return to work options, and then make a practical return-to-work plan.
