We’re a shortcut to achieving successful organisational culture change where staff are high performing, happy, committed and want to stay.

Ultimately we’re passionate about improving people’s lives – both at work and home – through creating a fair workplace where men and women feel able to work in the way that they want.

What’s the return on investment?

Nadia talks about the significant organisational benefits of creating a gender inclusive culture.

Are you aiming for a more gender-balanced workplace?
Are your current female initiatives barely making any ground?
This is common.

Let’s take a look at the other side of the gender coin: men want to be more active and involved in their children’s lives.  And yet men spend longer hours in the workplace than women and being the breadwinner still plays a key part in what it means to be a man.

This pressure to fulfil their role can cause men emotional strain, stress, burnout and health problems. An organisation that supports men to balance their work and home lives will see increased work performance, commitment and greater wellbeing. Plus, it supports female progression as the expectation of flexible working extends to men too.

Let’s Talk Men is a half-day interactive workshop for men. It provides a safe space where participants can share their views and experiences of the pressures they face  in conforming to expectations of ‘being  a man’ and, more importantly, where these pressures come from. Participants will leave with the tools and techniques to support them in making authentic decisions about work and home.
