Our parental leave gift service transforms employee engagement; it’s the story of how your gifts communicate appreciation for your colleagues, and at the same time support a vulnerable child, that creates such meaningful connection.

Connecting retention and inclusion strategy with your values, ESG results and contributing to seven of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we transform commonly existing spend it to a strategic, consistent and inclusive tool in your Working Parents programme.
