Parenthood Week at Hawley Crescent
We ran a successful week of workshops for Parenthood Week at Hawley Crescent, brilliantly put together by James Harvey.
The ParentHood is Viacom’s Employee Resource Group focused on working parents and families. By providing a flexible support network, open communication, and practical tools and resources, the group helps members achieve professional excellence while creating a healthier work-life balance.
The week consisted of NSPCC Online Safety, Baby and Child Sleep workshops, Baby and Child Emergency First Aid, Child Behaviour Basics and a session on our VIMN Family Friendly Policies.
A huge thank you goes to all of the organisers, a special thank you to Kate Henderson and Katie Lee from the HR team who conducted our VIMN Family Friendly Policies session and all of the participants for making use of these insightful events.
The Sleep workshop was good; I think everyone has different issues and kids of different ages so it can be a bit hard making it generic. We didn’t really get into specific techniques, but it was quite funny and reassuring to hear that everyone’s struggling with getting the little ones to stay in bed. - Karoline Bauer – Creative Manger – Nickelodeon UK
The baby and child emergency first aid course was an incredibly valuable and informative session; as a parent of a toddler the course has given me the confidence that I could deal with an emergency situation if I ever needed to. - Katie Lee – HR Business Partner, International
Just wanted to say I found the sleep workshop so much more helpful than I thought it would be! I thought it would be mostly about sleep training younger bubs, but I’ve managed to use some of the ‘official’ tips and also some from other people in the session already – Thea has gone to sleep on her own, without me reading for an hour for the past three nights… and she hasn’t done that in over a year! - Jess Kennedy – Programming Executive Nickelodeon
