The It's Working Project is committed to helping the private sector successfully bring new parents back to work with ease, as a matter of course and with a sense of pride.
The It's Working Project team partners with forward-thinking private-sector executives to create effective, easy-to-execute workplace policies. These easy-to-implement changes improve employee retention at a critical juncture in both men's and women's careers.
The It’s Working Project partners with private-sector workplaces as they explore and establish easy-to-execute programs to support working families. The It’s Working Project designs on- and off-ramp strategies (also called “fifth trimester strategies”) that increase successful return and retention outcomes.
Our low-cost, high-impact strategies are designed to course-correct existing concerns and proactively cover the full spectrum of the relationship between, and needs of, employer and parental employee. Our format is a long-overdue nexus between culture and communications – creating ultimate impact and assuring immediate progress. Using our proprietary methodology, we make sense of everything from the complex issues of leave to return resources, calibration, communication and beyond.
These easy-to-implement workplace changes improve employee retention, productivity and morale at a critical juncture in both men’s and women’s careers. We provide real-time solutions to support returning parents and caregivers in your workplace, catered to fit your individual needs.
We help you easily meet existing and future needs, and we help you integrate that commitment into your internal and external messaging.
Some of the ways in which we approach pregnancy, leave & return as a whole are via a careful exploration of off- and on-ramp strategies, including:
• Fully equipped lactation spaces
• Lactation training and support
• Parental leave cover/planning
• Backup childcare opportunities
• Regular childcare solutions
• Parental support mentoring
• Streamlined leave policies
• Transparent policies
• Communications planning
AND, messaging – telling the rich, robust story of your commitment via highly engaging internal and external messaging, campaign development, tactics and protocols that highlight best practices with pride.
