Our mission is to make the experience of returning to work after kids or a career break a little bit easier. We do this by partnering with companies and organisations who want to help their employees get back to their best after a period out of the business.

Ensuring Great Returns

By supporting your employees back into the workplace after starting or raising a family we aim to ensure that:

  • your investment in people is protected
  • your talent pipeline is healthy and balanced
  • your reputation as an employer of choice is enhanced

Programmes developed in partnership

Through our work with small enterprises to FTSE100 companies, and with input from leading academics and experts in leadership development, we've created a range of best-in-class tools, activities, and programmes. These are tailored for groups or individuals who want to maintain their careers after starting or raising a family.

Maternity and Paternity Coaching

Our group and one-to-one maternity and paternity coaching programmes helps employees to develop the confidence and resilience to navigate the practical and professional challenges that come with starting and raising a family, and having a rewarding and thriving career.

Manager Coaching

Our targeted line manager workshops are designed to increase empathy and build confidence in how to support colleagues through this life changing transition.

Contact us for a bespoke consultation or to arrange a booking.

Transitions Programme

Fronted by elite leadership coaches, our Transitions Programme brings together new parents from different organisations, equipping them with the skills and confidence to balance their family needs and career goals. It's this collaboration of different experiences, expertise and perspectives that makes the programme such a unique and exciting development opportunity for your employees.

So, whether you have multiple employees, or just one, contact us or download our brochure and prospectus to learn about the benefits of the Transitions Programme.

 

Working with businesses and internal learning, HR, and diversity teams, we are able to configure our programmes to ensure that the right support and expertise is available to both colleagues and managers at every stage of the transition, tailoring this to suit the specific needs of every organisation.

Finding your balance

Becoming a parent can be an incredible, enriching experience... but a successful career can be important too.

We’re not suggesting that it’s easy to balance family life with work, but we can help you explore how to get the best of both worlds, for you and your family.

At WOMBA we believe in finding the balance that’s right for you. Together, we’ll help you make positive choices and set appropriate boundaries, empowering you to be a confident and successful career parent.

A network of support

Join one of our groups and benefit not just from the support of our elite coaches, but also from the network of like-minded people sharing the experience of being working parents.

Download our brochure and prospectus, or contact us for a confidential conversation, and learn how we can help you introduce this unique programme to your employer.

Watch our video of Global Board Director Deanna Oppenheimer, and her twenty-six year old daughter Jeni, sharing their thoughts on the benefits of being, and having, successful career parents.

Our WOMBAssadors

The workplace is evolving, and modern employees face new choices and challenges. Today, with women being the principle breadwinners for 40% of families, the businesses that win in the war for talent will be those that are most responsive to the changing roles and needs of their employees.

Our WOMBAassadors represent a growing community of leaders and parents, from organisations that understand. You can find some of them sharing their personal stories on our YouTube Channel.

We share insights from our programmes with partner organisations, which in turn helps them to shape their strategies and policies. What we learn from working with each one individually helps all of our partners to benefit.

Contact us to discuss joining the WOMBAssador community.

It’s a powerful and connected community, growing all the time, and we’d love you to be a part of it.
