GET THE BEST PERFORMANCE FROM YOUR STAFF BY HELPING THEM BE BETTER PARENTS...says The Parent Practice Media
The Parent Practice Media - a unique and ground-breaking training service to the media and communications industry was launched in 2010 by executive search & selection firm The Stevens Company and The Parent Practice.
In these financially lean times fewer people are being employed in the media and communications industry and the increased complexity of work means the pressure to perform in the workplace has never been greater. Parental guilt is rife within the media industry due to the long working hours and high-pressure environments. In two thirds of families both parents work and many people working in the media confess to spending a significant amount of time worrying about home life issues during working hours. Add to this the increased number of challenges of parenthood brought about by the modern day child's relationship with the internet, social networking, celebrity culture, electronic games and competitive schooling it is apparent that the time is right to help working media parents be the best they can be at home for their children and at work for their employers. Hence the idea for The Parent Practice Media was born.
The two companies will work together to provide positive parenting courses, workshops, consultations, advice and on-going support for working media parents and their employers. The courses are also available to others individuals involved in the care of children.

"Raising children is probably the most challenging job you will ever do, holding down a job in media is probably the second; we aim to help with both" - The Parent Practice Media
