Why hire me?
I'm a specialist in ReBalancing Executive work and there are a number of key reasons why your organisation may need my skills.
Supporting corporate Initiatives around women leaders
Have your diversity initiatives around women stalled? Are too few talented cadndiates coming through the pipeline to senior roles? Surveys repeatedly show support for work-life balance is key to progressing women's careeers. This is why I developed the Balanced Leader Programme; and designed it to integrate with your existing plans to help regain momentum.
It's not just women who benefit from improved work-life balance. As social expectations change new fathers are increasingly looking for ways to spend more time with their family. At the other end of the scale older workers - who may also be carers for another adult - often welcome more flexible arrangements in the years leading up to retirement. Balanced working can enable a more inclusive workforce.

Making Talent Management more effective
Offering more flexibility throughout the entire employee journes and as part of your Talent Management strategy can open up a wider pool of candidates, ensuring your organisation retains valuable skills which might otherwise be lost.

Boosting your HR Strategy
Perhaps your HR function feels it's being side-lined in Agile Working conversations driven by a property or technology focus. I will equip your HR team with the appropriate expertise to be an effective project partner and ensure your Agile Working practices support both productivity and employee wellbeing. Active support for better balance reinforces resilience and wellbeing initiatives. And good work-life balance has consistently been shown to improve employee engagement, loyalty and productivity.

Are you ready to be a world class work-life balance employer?
Imagine an organisation where:
Employees feel able to bring their whole selves to work.
People recognise the benefits of good work-life balance and support each other to achieve it.
Work is seen as something you do, not somewhere you go.
Success is measured by the outputs you produce, not the number of hours you spend in the office.
Customized jobs enable Agile Working and the retention of key Talent. (Learn more about how customizing full-time jobs can improve the female talent pipeline here.)
Consider the benefits:
- Mounting research evidence has confirmed that good work-life balance increases job satisfaction, improves workplace performance, strengthens organisational commitment and results in better physical and mental health.
- Balanced working is increasingly recognised as the heart of sustainable organisations; and as underpinning corporate sustainability strategies.
- Reorganising for better balance by moving towards a results oriented work environment enables a clearer definition of expected outputs/results and an opportunity to modernise (or eradicate) entrenched but unproductive working practices.
- Introducing a change programme under the work-life balance banner is likely to be well received; and to foster flexible and co-operative thinking - essential qualities for an Agile Workforce.
Let's work together, build on your existing successes and transform your organisation into a world class work-life balance employer.
