Secret Parenting in the Workplace

podcast Jan 26, 2021

Hello and welcome to Episode 46 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
 
Today we are chatting about something that I bet most of you have seen in one workplace or another, whether it’s something you’ve experienced yourself or have witnessed from others.
 
 
That is the concept of ‘Secret Parenting’ the act of actively hiding or minimising our involvement in parental responsibilities with our colleagues and managers, for fear that it will have some sort of detrimental effect on our careers, our roles or the perception others have of us at work.
 
 
Whilst COVID has done a whole lot to help put an end to this trend, is there more we can be doing as employers to reduce the likelihood of this happening in our workplace.

Small business and fast growing entrepreneurial organisations who are looking to service more clients and bigger projects faster and more efficiently have always been creative in how to manage this growth in their organisations.
 
One of the key strategies many small business use to facilitate growth in a low risk, cost effective way, is engaging contractors rather than employees to help meet their growing client demands. And there are lots of great arguments for why businesses should utilise this option.
 
However, with the prevalence of contract labour available, and the fact that this now seems to have become ‘common practice’ amongst small businesses, the line between what constitutes and employee and a contractor has become blurred in the eyes of many business owners. And those who don’t...
