Emotional support will make mums more productive

Working
mothers need greater emotional support from employers, according to new
research.

A new
survey by charity Parentalk reveals that nine out of 10 working mothers want
employers to help them deal with anxiety, guilt and lack of confidence.

The
results also show that eight out of 10 have considered giving up work because
of the stress of combining a career and motherhood.

Parentalk
claims working mothers are happy with practical support from employers, such as
creches and flexible working practises, but need greater emotional support to
ensure greater job satisfaction and better productivity.
