Making your workplace fertility friendly

Introducing a fertility workplace policy is a great starting point to show your employees that you’re on their side when it comes to expanding their families.

Knowing how to talk to colleagues who are struggling to have a child, however, means so much more than a policy. When an employee comes to you about upcoming treatment do you—  give advice, say nothing, change the subject or feel out of your comfort zone?

Being an inclusive employer that is keen to change the culture of your business is the best way to attract and retain the best talent.
