A parent's love is whole, no matter how many times divided-Robert Bault
Every Parent must make a choice about their career. We have an estimated 62,000 new births each year. There are decisions to be made as early as the pregnancy stage that parents must make in terms of their career.
Only 47.8 per cent of single parents were at work, compared with 70.2 per cent for heads of two-parent families. 13.1 per cent of one parent families were unemployed. For couples, this figure stood at 6.9 per cent.
Those looking after the home or family were also prevalent among one parent families, accounting for 17.7 per cent, although this was unevenly spread between men and women. Only 4 per cent of one parent fathers were homemakers, compared with 19.8 per cent of one parent mothers.
The cost of childcare, commuting and work/life balance are all factors that contribute to parents decision making over there careers.
We coach around confidence, balance, change, resilience, visibility, boundaries, leadership, advancement. Your stuck points, your inner critic, your imposter syndrome, your strengths. We coach systemically and are as interested in the system that surrounds you as we are in you – what does your team need you to learn and what does your organisation need most from you.
And we love this work because we believe working parents are remarkable and bringing up the next generation is a responsibility that does not get enough credit or enough support and being a working parent should not be a barrier to success or as hard as it is.
Companies that offer training alone experience 22.4% increase in productivity, but when combined with coaching that figure rises to 88%.

Companies who combine coaching with training increase employee productivity over 80%.
According to the ICF, 86% of organizations saw an ROI on their coaching engagements.
Ernst & Young saw an increase of 17.5% retention when they established their 4 stage maternity coaching sessions in 2011 and more than half said it had increased the likelihood that they would remain with the firm in the future
I know that my idea to build a platform specifically tailored towards parenting and career has the potential to solve the problem.
I believe new parents need a space where they can learn about how their career paths will be changed.
I have seen how a network of parents & carer's who can come together to brainstorm new possibilities for the future of workplaces
I believe that Parene is an opportunity to grow and adapt to help give parents and companies solutions to ever changing needs. Parene offers bespoke solutions with key values to help deliver on all milestones. Parene's belief is that all parents have more options than the 6 choices they currently consider and companies can be more flexible too. I want to bring the heart forward, taking our learnings to make a more adaptable tomorrow.
Parene began as a solo mission to help parents through career coaching. My first client under the Parene name was Mugdha Kowale. As she shared in the Parene journey we quickly realised how aligned our goals were and how powerful our message could be together. We decided to join forces to make Parene an even more welcoming space for parents to find support and resources.
Now we are collaborating with other individuals and organisations to shape the future of working parents.
