The challenge

Tommy’s have unique authority in the UK in relation to pregnant employees and how they are and should be treated in the workplace. 

They wanted to enhance their subscription offer to HR Departments by supplementing it with a high-quality elearning portal for line-managers: ‘Pregnancy at Work’.

Why Tommy's chose Day One

We were chosen because of our recent experience creating elearning content of a similarly sensitive nature on the topics of safeguarding, helping victims of sexual violence, and mental health.

Learning by Doing

Day One created a Learning Management System that was branded and customised for Tommy’s, along with two 30-min elearning modules on Pregnancy and Employment.

We developed an immersive learning experience that included practice in having difficult conversations with someone who has just lost a baby and about other highly emotive subjects.

This is an often overlooked aspect of equality, diversity and inclusion – EDI training.

As of 2024, over 130 organisations large and small have used this important management elearning. They include major global companies, such as Santander, BUPA, Hitachi, Asda, Channel 4, Moneysupermarket, Unilever and more.

Pregnancy and parenting at work courses
