Fertility benefits - a practical guide for HR

Free live webinar 13th June @10am

The UK is experiencing a work engagement crisis, with a recent Gallop study showing that only 10% of employees are engaged at work, compared to 34% in the USA and 33% in India. Also, while 61% expect a fertility benefit, only 17% of UK employers offer one, compared to 39% in the states.

Offering a fertility benefit at work shows you care for your employees and will actively support them during a stressful time in their life. This in turn will have a positive effect on engagement, productivity and retention, whilst also boosting your appeal as an employer of choice for prospective hires.

Attend this session to find out how to:

  • Get executive buy-in for your fertility benefit initiative
  • Add your fertility benefit to your existing health insurance cover
  • Ensure psychological safety for colleagues to talk about fertility at work
  • Work out how much a fertility benefit will cost at your company
  • Make sure your benefit provider offers at-home scans and consultations

We will also hear a short case study on why Nomura choose to offer a fertility benefit, and what it means to their employees.
