OXFORDSHIRE, ENGLAND, March 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Coaching consultancy Talking Talent has launched a new online portal - ttaccess - which helps organisations cost-effectively provide on-going support for all employees before, during and after parental leave. It is relevant to those considering starting a family, working parents at any stage of their career journey and crucially their line managers,. Aiding retention by providing consistent support to a broad range of people, ttaccess helps organisations protect the female talent pipeline by extending support beyond maternity and paternity and into advanced career planning and subsequent progression.
Anyone can 'opt in' to the coaching-led portal, explore their options, and map their own transition journey - whenever and however they need to. High-value content includes videos and self assessment exercises with best practise advice on topics such as the return to work, flexible working and networking. For line managers, there's best practice guidance around unconscious bias, the implications for the broader team and how to make flexible working a commercial success.
Talking Talent's latest research, Up, Out or Different-The Career Dilemma for UK Women, illustrates that 64% of working parents see maternity as a key career pinch-point. If an individual doesn't receive the support they need from their employer, the research also highlights the very real risk that they will look elsewhere to receive that support. The impact of this loss of talent is felt on the bottom line: the cost of recruiting to replace key employees, the drop in team productivity, reduced client revenues and impacted client relationships.
Chris Martin, Director at Talking Talent, comments: "Transforming support for working parents is fast becoming a business imperative. We recognise that many organisations lack the budget for a comprehensive long-term coaching programme and so we created ttaccess to enable them to provide a high quality but cost-effective level support for managers and employees alike. For many organisations it will be a huge step forward in terms of the coaching-led support they can now offer working parents."

Talking Talent has published a downloadable Insight Guide: The World is Changing, which explains how organisations can transform their people strategy to better support working parents, explores what the right support looks like, and provides practical advice on identifying the different needs of the employee population.
