Episode 27: The Great Resignation – the post Covid disconnect and the opportunity for HR, Jodi Geddes and Kate Pollard, co-founders, Circle In
With the goal of creating a business world where companies supporting working parents is the norm, not a perk, Jodi and Kate introduce Circle In and the positive impacts they have for talent retention and for society.
Noting that 89% of people will become a parent, leaders can’t afford not to look after working parents. Witnessing The Great Resignation around the world, Jodi & Kate comment on the balance of power shifting from employer to employee, with significant consequences and opportunities for HR.
Sharing their view on best practice for working parents, such as a gender-neutral parental leave policy, they provide examples and case studies that you can reference for your company too.
Here’s a snapshot of a few things we talked about:
