The ‘F word’ in the workplace!

Webinar | Thursday, 19th March 2020 11:00am GMT | HR Grapevine & Fertifa

You are watching on demand.

Join us for a live webinar on 19th March 2020 to hear our panel of employee benefits, HR, wellbeing and fertility experts share insights on why fertility in the workplace is something that every HR decision maker should have on their agenda for 2020.

Fertility challenges can be emotionally, mentally, physically, and financially draining – affecting a wider range of employees than HR might initially think.

Being savvy and sensitive to (as well as being informed about) employees’ fertility challenges can improve D&I, workforce wellbeing and engagement as well as showing clear ROI.

In this webinar you can expect to hear about:

  • Why fertility difficulties impact on wellbeing at work

  • How an employer can support this need better and why doing so provides excellent ROI for the business

  • The widespread nature of fertility challenges

  • The issues different employee groups face when it comes to fertility

  • An opportunity to ask the experts in this field in an interactive Q&A

About Fertifa

Workplace fertility is the biggest taboo in the workplace, replacing the mental health taboo. Fertility wellbeing has been ignored in the workplace for a long time due to its sensitivity and privacy. We are talking about a wide range of employees being affected by fertility issues, not just the 3.5 million couples in the UK having difficulties conceiving, but also single women who worry about their declining fertility as they approach their 40’s, and the LGBT group who need 100% support to start a family. As we have first-hand knowledge of fertility stress in the workplace, we understand how emotional, complex and lonely the journey may be, and how it affects employee productivity, absenteeism and eventually retention. Many employees simply leave jobs without their managers appreciating what they were going through, which is a shame for both the employee and their employer.
