RPS partners with Parents At Work to support work life balance in AAP
22 June 2020 | 1 min read
Ask any working parent or carer what the toughest thing about COVID-19 restrictions has been and they are likely to say looking after the family while trying to get work done at home!
Recognising that the challenges of balancing parenting or carer responsibilities with work didn’t start with COVID, we are proud to launch a new program to help our Australia Asia Pacific (AAP) team strike the right balance between work and family.
The 'Families@RPS' program has been introduced to help promote a family-friendly workplace where people are supported to navigate the challenges that come with a busy work and family life.
In launching the program, we’ve partnered with membership-based organisation Parents At Work to provide access to a whole host of education, coaching and support services through their specialist online learning platform.
"RPS employs people of all stages of life. Whether you’re having a first baby or caring for elderly parents, we understand that managing life and work can be stressful. The program is our way of providing a family support network behind the people that make up our RPS family," said Diane Christensen, RPS People Director for Australia Asia Pacific.
