Episode 54: Fertility at work - how to transform culture through a network: Ulf Bengtsson, Chief People Officer at British Gas and Hortense Thorpe, Fertility Ambassador at Centrica
In this special episode we hear from colleagues Ulf Bengtsson and Hortense Thorpe on their experience of changing workplace culture and support for colleague fertility.
