Working Parents-To-Be: Your Guide to Parental Leave and Return... What to Expect and How to Make It Work for You

Catherine Oliver

This how-to guide is aimed at those becoming parents while they're working. Those who are wondering how they will still do their job as well as being a parent. Who are worried about having a conversation about changing their working pattern and not sure how to approach it. Who don't know where to start with creating a return-to-work plan.

It's designed to help them with all these questions and more, guiding them every step of the way - from before they head off on parental leave to while they're away through to their return.

Catherine Oliver has not only been there herself but has supported thousands of parents choosing to take on the dual roles of parent and employee.

It will also be of interest to managers who so often find themselves worried about doing or saying the wrong thing - with notes especially for them at the end of every chapter.
