Thank you for sharing your views on The Hive about how to develop policies on maternity, adoption and shared parental leave

Family setting

Thank you to all staff who have shared their ideas, comments and votes via our campaign on The Hive about how to develop policies on maternity, adoption and shared parental leave.

The campaign received: 

  • 50 ideas
  • 163 comments
  • 2112 votes

The top three ideas were:

  • Remote/working from home
  • On site school holiday childcare camp
  • Extra leave for parents of premature/poorly babies

Gemma Dale, HR Policy and Engagement Manager, has begun analysing the responses and will share these with the Working Families Group. We will keep you updated on actions taken following the campaign via The Hive and StaffNet.

At the University we aim to offer leading policies and activities to support our working parents so that they can continue to work alongside their family commitments. Your feedback is vital as the University reviews maternity, adoption and shared parental leave – as well as additional support arrangements and initiatives.
