Case Study: How family friendly benefits are making a difference at BPE
“Parent Promise provides extra support and can reach our employees in a way in which we are not always able to. It helps to show we are invested in our employees and their journey into parenthood and supporting their return to work.”
Pregnancy and preparing for parenthood are periods of time that are filled with lots of emotion and anxiety. How people are treated during this time can make a huge difference to how they feel, cope and manage their pregnancy.
With our help, BPE Solicitors were able to introduce a simple solution which has had high impact on expectant parents at BPE.
New & expectant parents at BPE are now supported from the beginning of pregnancy through to their return to work with specialist support from Parent Promise designed to empower them on their parenthood journey.
The support package includes: On demand, 1-2-1, support on WhatsApp from qualified midwives, wellbeing check ins, wellbeing boxes and access to our online parenting community with resources, self-paced courses and peer-to-peer & expert support.

What was it like before you had Parent Promise supporting your colleagues?
BPE has always had family friendly policies, such as a miscarriage policy and a fertility treatment policy, but it has been difficult to show our support in other ways. Parent Promise aligns with our family friendly ethos, supporting employees who may not otherwise ask for it. Becoming a parent can be exciting, scary, and overwhelming at the same time and this service helps our employees know that we are there to support them through all of it.
What made our product stand out from other options?
The service is so visual and is easy to understand. The initial introduction with Natalie was easy, friendly and I did not feel pressurised to sign up to it. The fact that you included both parents along the journey was a key selling point as it meant the offering would be inclusive to everyone, not just the person carrying the baby.
What made you happiest about working with us?
The onboarding process was easy and accessible which allowed us to introduce the firm to it with excitement and understanding. The feedback we have received from our employees has been very positive and they have really bought into this service. This makes us feel that we are caring for our employees and upholding our company values.
How has your BPE been impacted since using our service?
Parent Promise provides extra support and can reach our employees in a way in which we are not always able to. It helps to show we are invested in our employees and their journey into parenthood and supporting their return to work. It has been invaluable even when the pregnancy did not progress and offered something we could not as a team but we knew this service meant the staff member was supported.
