The F Word at Work Podcast

Welcome to The F Word at Work from Fertility Matters at Work – a conversation for busy HR, D&I and wellbeing leads with the aim to open your minds to the vast topic of fertility at work and why it really matters for employees and businesses too.

We know that more sensitive and taboo topics can instill the fear of getting the conversation wrong, or not knowing where to start, so by sharing a range of diverse conversations from our community about their own family building struggles and how it has affected their everyday working life, we hope you’ll understand what support people need.

You’ll also hear examples of best practice from trail-blazing organisations already doing amazing work to support their people and we’ll be sharing insights from thought-leaders in the workplace wellbeing space about the work already being done, the impact it is having and the possibilities that lie ahead to help make workplaces better, more engaged places to work, attractors and retainers of talent, all within a psychologically safe environment free from stigma and taboo.
