“A company that provides their employees access to Parentaly resources in any form is showing empathy and support for working parents, and no doubt helping instill loyalty and commitment. And especially for first time parents - the resources Parentaly provides helps alleviate some of that excited anticipation of planning for a new family addition.”

"My experience with Parentaly has been fantastic. It made me feel supported on a personal and professional level. Discussions with my Parentaly coach allowed me to proactively work through my pre-leave plan and voice my feelings about becoming a new parent. Frameworks in the Parentaly toolkit also made it easy to organize my thoughts and learn best practices when preparing for parental leave."

"My coach Kelly is incredibly personable. She is super knowledgeable about parental leave, what to look out for and what to prioritize. I feel much more confident and comfortable about my time away after our sessions. Would 100% recommend her/Parentaly to my colleagues!"

"It was so helpful to have a guide to develop a vision of the role I wanted to return to. Tactically, the templates were incredibly detailed and I got so much positive feedback from my team on how thorough everything was, and how they felt clear on every dimension of my leave planning. They all thanked me for what I had prepared, and I in turn have to thank Parentaly for all of it."

"Preparing to become a parent while juggling the responsibilities of a high impact role would have left very little time to consider how to effectively prepare my teams for my absence and to imagine how I will need to operate differently when I return. Parentaly coaches were an amazing resource to build a plan that specifically addressed the areas that concerned and impacted myself, my family, and my organization."

"I feel much more confident about going out on leave, but most importantly, I feel more confident about coming BACK from leave. In fact, I'm excited to come back knowing that I've outlined a framework for success in my role. I'm so grateful to my company for investing in a program that contributes to my peace of mind."

Handshake

"This program was extremely useful to have a coach help guide and talk me through the process of going on leave. This is the first time I've taken a leave longer than 2 weeks in my career, so there was a lot of nuance that I hadn't thought of until I started working with my Parentaly coach. Through our conversations and the materials provided, I feel like I'm very well positioned for a successful leave and return."
