CIPD Podcast 116 - Shared parental leave

In this episode we chat with mum-to-be Ksenia Zheltoukhova, research advisor at CIPD, and her partner Ryan McKelvey about their decision to take advantage of shared leave and what challenges and opportunities it has presented. We also chat with Fiona Martin, Pay and benefits administrator at CIPD, to find out how it works in practice and how HR can support and encourage couples considering shared parental leave.
