BT: developing a maternity handbook

Equality specialist, Sally Ward, and Openreach General Manager, Jo Koroma, discuss a new maternity handbook that BT has created to support line managers dealing with employees who are pregnant or returning from maternity leave.

The handbook was developed in collaboration with BT’s women’s network, using the experiences of women who have undergone pregnancy and maternity at BT to help identify practical advice and top tips for line managers. It is complemented by an employee handbook.
