Wait— we thought that parents just don’t understand. But as it turns out, workplaces don’t understand parents at all. So how can HR help to better support the working parent?

Hebba engages in a thought-provoking discussion with Kim Rohrer, Principal Partner at Oyster, a global employment platform reshaping cross-border hiring. With 15 years in HR under her belt, Kim sheds light on the critical role HR plays in nurturing a compassionate workplace as they explore the challenges faced by working moms and parents. 

Kim delves into the essential ingredients for parental success, the need for robust childcare options, and how HR teams can foster a supportive environment. 

Plus, Kim and Hebba also delve into the impact of microaggressions on employees of color, the case for doing away with unpaid labor, and the value of women’s time.
