REPORT: SHARING THE CARING



What is it?

This report summarises the findings of a survey of over 1,000 parents working in Professional Services in Higher Education [HE] during UK’s first COVID-19 lockdown and school closures, between March and June 2020.

Who is it for?

Everyone looking for further information on the impact of Covid-19.

What can it do?

Data on ways in which unpaid labour is divided between co-parenting couples is scarcely available, yet we know it influences career progression significantly. The COVID-19 pandemic provided a unique opportunity for WHEN to look at how parents felt about the division of home and caring responsibilities, and the impact on their careers, whilst working from home during lockdown. The report focuses on professional services staff because they have been largely ignored in sector studies exploring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, yet represent a significant proportion of the workforce.
