MYOB and Circle In launch online portal to support parent employees
19 Mar 2020
Leading business software provider MYOB has launched an online employee portal to support working parents, in partnership with Circle In, offering practical materials and tools for existing or soon to be parents.
The Parents Hub is an online resource where MYOB employees can access information across different stages of their parent journey – from taking leave to returning to work and juggling life as a working parent. Managers can also use the hub to assist them in supporting a team member via automated reminders and a ‘stay in touch’ program.
The current rate of return from parental leave is 96% at MYOB, with 83% changing their hours following parental leave.
MYOB Chief Employee Experience Officer Helen Lea said the portal is part of a wider program to enhance the overall employee experience, which includes flexible working and generous parental leave.
“Working parents are a crucial part of the workforce. Whether this is their first child and a new experience, or they’re set to grow their family, we know that being a working parent can be a mix of rewarding and challenging,” she said.
“We are delighted to partner with Circle In to help our team navigate an exciting stage of their life.”
Circle In Co-Founder and Director Kate Pollard said her vision to create a better world for working parents relies on partners like MYOB to support the broader community.
“We are thrilled to partner with a progressive company like MYOB and support them in giving their working parents community a positive employee experience,” Ms. Pollard said.
“We have created a platform that is inclusive to all stages of parenthood and family types. We hope that the Parents Hub helps MYOB employees navigate their career through their parenthood journey.”
The Parents Hub provides information, resources and policies relevant to working parents in one place. It also offers news and real-life stories from MYOB team members who can share their stories to inspire and support others.
“At MYOB we know that it’s crucial for an innovative company to be a diverse one – our team represent a wonderful mix of backgrounds, cultures, experiences and life stages, which is why launching the Parents Hub is so important to us,” said Ms. Lea.
