InterCompany Peer Coaching Program
Our InterCompany program is configured to meet the needs of smaller organisations.
This new offer will allow companies to start with as few as 1 or 2 peer coaches.
We bring peer coaches from different companies together in one peer coaching team, creating space for them to connect and exchange with like minded people from other companies
The standardized approach allows companies to offer a progressive program that until recently was only available to employees in large enterprises.
One (1) employee willing and able to commit 16 working hours per year to collaborate with parents@work and implement the program in their company.
One (1) employee and who is also a parent willing and able to take on the meaningful and rewarding role of peer coach and connect with other parents.
Up to two (2) employee parents who would like to benefit from peer coaching and connecting with other working parents.
All employees are welcome to join the 2 “For ALL” events, whether they are new parents, experienced parents, or employees who want to support their colleagues & contribute towards an inclusive workplace.
