What we're doing to support working and prospective parents

Posted by Joanna Harman on Jul 21, 2022 9:09:38 AM

This year marked the 10th anniversary of the UN General Assembly declaring an annual "Global Day of Parents". Since then, it has been held on 1st June each year to honour parents around the world.

Parenting, often portrayed on social media as an idyllic state of being - beautifully dressed, calm, doting parents, effortlessly juggling work and home, with smiling, cooperative children - is not typically the reality.

How Goodlord helps its team respect work boundaries and manage stress

Posted by Conor Munday on May 11, 2022 8:00:00 AM

A lot of people lack respect for others' boundaries, primarily because they don't have any for themselves. They may say "it's your job" or "we're paying you to do something".
