Experience tells us that when employees go through the heartache of a miscarriage, they are more likely to be back to better health in a shorter time frame, if they receive the right support following miscarriage / baby loss.
With as many as one in four pregnancies ending in loss, it can be a difficult time for employees, and that can often result in extended leave, or worse, an increase in presenteeism, which is when employees are there, but neither in good health nor able to perform at their usual capacity. The latter can have a wider detrimental impact if not addressed. For many years, families have suffered the upset of a miscarriage in silence and can find it difficult to explain the bereavement to their employer. Some are uncomfortable sharing their loss, and some are fearful it will impact their employment.
End the silence and minimise the suffering for those who have been through the trauma of miscarriage & baby loss.
We now want businesses to join this movement ✊
As well as our platforms that provide free peer-to-peer, community support, TWGGE also runs a series of practical courses, lovingly created to aid recovery and boost wellness following a miscarriage or baby loss. Our courses, including our flagship Pathway to Recovery course (£225), are held off-site and out of work hours, for partnering businesses to offer to their employees, in times of need.
For a small investment, employers are setting the tone for a supportive culture, while sending a clear internal message:
1. They value their employees
2. They are investing in their well-being
3. They welcome and support women of child-bearing age - something many businesses fall short on.
Whether you’re a company CEO wanting to stand out from the competition, a Head of HR looking to further support employee wellness, or a member of the team who simply wants to raise awareness at your place of work, feel free to contact us, using the form below and we’ll be in touch very soon.
If there is a team member at your company that you would like to make aware of these courses, please provide their details and we will send them an overview of the course available. Please tick the box if you’d like to remain anonymous.
