CM Talent

Support to help staff who are parents-to-be and  parents thrive at work

Services for the wellbeing of staff who are parents-to-be, parents and carers to enable them to thrive at work.

CM Talent offer services aimed at removing the gender barriers to professional success and strategically support the development of more women leaders, closing the gender pay gap.

These aims are intrinsically linked to the wellbeing of each leader, teacher and member of your support staff to enable them to thrive at home with their family responsibilities and at work.

Across the board, the maternity penalty still exists where women’s career prospects suffer due to motherhood, resulting in an imbalance of women at the top of the profession. Fatherhood doesn’t attract the same effect on career prospects for men.

CM Talent specialise in helping employers to readdress this imbalance – helping employers to attract, retain and develop gender diverse teams.
