“We chose to use Talking Talent Online as part of the blend of support that we offer working parents at PwC – it complements the coaching programme and other initiatives, by offering 24/7 support and a place that people can go to for expert guidance even when they’re on leave. As a business, it also means we can extend this kind of expert support to people who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it. We want to support our people who have busy lives, helping them create sustainable careers here at PwC, and making the transition smoother for the business and the wider team. The key benefits for us are the increased engagement of new and expectant parents at the firm, the improved communication between line managers and their team members, and maintaining business & team performance during periods that could be much more challenging without this kind of support.” Sarah Churchman, Head of D&I, PwC
