WHAT IS PEER COACHING?
The process by which 2 colleagues come together to form a trusting relationship, using coaching skills to help the other reflect, explore strategies, and find good personal solutions.
Peer Coaching provides a unique value beyond other coaching methods in the following ways:
Strengthens cross functional networks
Creates strong support systems between members of the peer coaching team
Brings relevant perspectives based on the peer coaches’ personal experiences
Enhances leadership skills
Boosts employee engagement and develops camaraderie
Increases feelings of purpose by positively impacting the life of a colleague
PARENTS@WORK IS MODERN, PRAGMATIC, EFFECTIVE - A NEW APPROACH
How parents@work differs from TRADITIONAL COACHING PROGRAMS
Companies build up their own peer coaching for employees internally
Employees are coached by peer coaches who are both colleague and experienced parent.
SUSTAINABILITY & INCLUSION
Companies invest in the development of their own organization by upskilling employees, using existing resources, while offering this support to all parents equally
How parents@work differs from
MENTORING AND/OR BUDDY PROGRAMS
The program is intentionally structured to deliver the best results, utilising coaching skills and tools
The peer coaches are supported with training and supervision, providing a safe environment to try out new skills
Each program participant is asked for feedback, outcomes are explored, learnings are shared, the program consistently delivers the highest quality

BENEFIT FROM OUR EXPERTISE
SMALL & MEDIUM SIZED ENTERPRISES (SME)
We are excited to announce that a very special program designed specifically for SME’s will be launched this summer.
Until recently, the numbers of employees required to make a peer coaching program viable didn't fit with SME's.
Our SME program is configured to meet the needs of smaller organisations.
We have received so much interest from SME's, and so we put our heads together to design a program that works for them.
JUST FOR SME’s
- This new offer will allow SME’s to start with as few as 1 or 2 peer coaches.
- The costs of running the program can be shared between the participating SME’s.
- The standardized approach allows SME’s to offer a progressive program that until recently was only available to employees in large enterprises.
- Places in the pilot are limited.
- Registration to participate in the SME mixed company coaching team will be opened soon
- German and English language teams.
- Switzerland, Germany, South Africa.
