THE SIX STAGES OF UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORTING RETURN TO WORK MUMS.


As we limber up to our EDI & Annual Six Stages Framework Conference, I saw

this post and could not help thinking about the Six Stages Framework!


Firstly, thank you Bethany Samson for this post. I hope you will not mind me looking at your story through the lenses of the 6Stages Framework. [And what a beautiful picture of you and your baby. Many congrats 🎉]


In this scenario this starts by asking the question:


Employers where are you in your journey of understanding and ability to support those parents returning to the workplace after having a baby?


Here are the 6Stages on the positive axis.


STAGE +1 UNAWARE, IGNORANT AND IN DENIAL OF ISSUES IN THIS AREA

Let’s consider the employer behaviours and how these manifest: These employers have no idea of what employees are going through.

They are oblivious and removed from the challenges faced by parents returning to work.


STAGE +2 DISMISSIVE AND AVOIDANT

These employers show an unwillingness to recognise the challenges and the responsibilities that employers have towards employees

“Holding onto policies and workplaces that let you down.”

They may even make the right sounds about being supportive, but nothing really changes.
