Australia, 18 November 2015: Sydney headquartered, work-life, diversity and inclusion solutions provider, SeventeenHundred, has teamed up with UK-based, My Family Care, the largest provider of work+family solutions, backup care and family support services in Europe, to assist employees in managing their work-life commitments.
The new partnership will provide a consistent employee benefit and work-life approach to the almost 400,000 workers currently supported by the two providers across Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and Europe, as well as further global regions where My Family Care is active, such as the US and Asia-Pac.
A particularly strong feature of the new partnership is the global, yet local, provision of parental leave and parental coaching services, which have been tried and tested with thousands of working parents and their managers in the UK, and will now be rolled out through local experts in Australia and New Zealand.
CEO and Founder of SeventeenHundred, Ryan Meldrum, said: “We are thrilled about this new synergy with My Family Care – a leader in its field. For us to now be able to provide a global offering to our current clients, and potential clients, is a huge milestone. We are looking forward to extending our inclusiveness mantra in order to support our client’s employee, no matter where in the world they reside.”
Managing Director and Co-founder of My Family Care, Ben Black, said: “This tie-up with SeventeenHundred is very timely as clients continue to expect joined-up global solutions. We are delighted to work with partners whose values closely reflect our own and the quality of whose work speaks for itself. We’re particularly excited to be extending the reach of our market-leading coaching services through SeventeenHundred.”
Some of the services offered under this new partnership, include:
· Work-life integration and diversity solutions to support organisations and their employees;
· The Work & Life Hub – SeventeenHundred’s innovative new platform that provides customised advice, information and tools to help organisations’ employees balance work-life commitments, and;
· Backup care – acts as a “safety net” for employees who care for children, adults or elderly loved ones by providing temporary care when regular caregiving arrangements are unavailable.
Together, the two providers boast an impressive list of clients including Virgin, Shell, Pfizer, IBM, Energy Australia and KPMG.
