Childcare Services workshop: maintaining balance upon returning to work
A workshop for expectant, new and returning parents on maintaining a work-life balance
Monday 8 July 2019, 10am to 2pm
Chemistry Research Laboratory, Wolfson Seminar Room, Mansfield Road , OX1 3TA
This workshop is being offered across the University to parents/carers who have recently returned to work after a career break. The goal is to provide recent returners with the information, tools, support, and networks they need to ensure a successful and smooth return to work.
The workshop is open to everyone who has recently returned to work, or will be returning, after taking a break for caring responsibilities. The workshop is particularly relevant for people returning to work following a period of parental leave, paternity leave, maternity or adoption leave.
Over the half-day workshop, you will:
Learn about childcare and other family support
Learn about relevant HR policies and practices, and have your questions answered by an HR team member and the Head of Childcare Services
Get an overview of the core skills needed to communicate with confidence and practise some of those skills in a supportive environment
Hear from a panel of returning carers (academics, researchers, and professional and support staff) who will share their tips on time management and balancing home and work demands
Network and meet other recent returners from around the University over lunch
Tea/coffee and lunch will be provided.
