We are now just under a year into Shared Parental Leave (SPL) entitlement and it's time to reflect on and learn from how organisations are getting on.

How many people are taking up SPL?

Are organisations enhancing SPL or offering the statutory minimum?

And what has the impact been?

Conversations with our own members, and recent studies by My Family Care and Working Families give us an insight into the implementation and take-up of SPL, and the issues that organisations have faced in trying to get it right.
