A parent-friendly policy is
 as important for employees
as for organizations!
  • 66% of parents report difficulties in reconciling work and personal life with a child aged 0-3 years
  • 41% of parents feel that being helped to improve work-life balance has a big impact on how they view their employer
  • 80% of women have heard sexist remarks related to motherhood in the workplace, and 59% of men have heard sexist remarks related to fatherhood
  • Allows employees to work serenely By taking into consideration the daily problems they are confronted with, and by helping them to deal with them.
  • Promotes equal oppotunity between parents and non-parents By preventing parenthood from becoming a barrier to job fulfilment and career advancement.
  • Advances society and employee equality By promoting the inclusion of all parenthood paths, as well as gender equality.
Organizations have the power to make things happen
The Parental Challenge is inspired by, and is a free continuation of, the “Parental Act,” the movement that extended second-parent leave
