International law firm Ashurst announces the launch of ‘Stay in Touch’, an end-to-end platform supporting Ashurst parents globally throughout their parental leave and beyond.

The customised platform is available to all of the firm’s employees who are considering starting a family, preparing for the arrival of their newest addition or returning from parental leave.

‘Stay in Touch’ covers expert articles and online coaching covering all stages of parental leave (pre, during, post and return to work); case studies and interviews with Ashurst working parents, as well as articles to keep those on leave up-to-date with firm developments; and partner/manager and employee toolkits with notifications being sent via email, to keep track of key dates and milestones.

Ashurst’s vision is to create the best place to work for our people and to be the most progressive global law firm, and ensuring our workplace is diverse and inclusive is key to that. Working parents make up a large proportion of our firm so it is vital they are supported to develop and thrive here at Ashurst, Paul Jenkins, global managing partner, said.

“The platform will provide an important link, to ensure that all parents who are considering, on or returning from parental leave are able to easily stay connected to the firm, and feel confident and supported when they return to work,” Caroline Rawes, chief people officer, added.
