Business in The Community’s (BITC) Gender campaign is hosting this Remote Working and Childcare peer learning forum.

Acas has advised that employers and employees should be practical, flexible, and sensitive to each other’s situation when working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Employers who furlough need to address the impact on women returning to work and consider the challenges they face when working at home. 

At this event, members will discuss how they are supporting their workforce and what strategy changes they have implemented as a result of COVID-19. We will discuss different approaches to remote working throughout 2020/21.

Discussion points

  • Agile and flexible working trends and changes
  • Employee assistance programme 
  • Apps and online resources
  • The role of employee networks and parenting forums
  • Supporting parents and carers with their workload, stress levels and childcare management
  • The moral, financial, and emotional impact on employees
  • Update on policies and parenting strategies throughout 2020/21
  • Home schooling vs workload
  • Single-parent households and inclusive childcare resources
  • Signposting to include everyone within the workforce from all backgrounds and genders

This event is free and open to BITC members only, with preference given to Gender partners.

It is designed for HR practioners and managers, and diversity and inclusion practioners and managers.
