Mission: We advocate on behalf of all parents at Allstate and provide a support system through networking and information sharing for those juggling the challenges of being a working parent.

Vision: Through education, communication and leveraging resources, employees will be successful without compromising family life or professional commitment.

Goals:

  • Focus on the business value PWT brings to Allstate and the connection to employee retention and recruitment.
  • Advocate for better policies surrounding maternity leave, paternity leave and benefits for adoptive parents.
  • Provide resources to help navigate the unique challenges parents face professionally and personally.

2013 HIGHLIGHTS

PWT members with their children.

  • In June, PWT hosted what has become a signature event — Parental Leave 101. The workshop featured an HR representative who guided parents-to-be and new parents through the steps to prepare for short-term disability and FMLA, and answered other questions surrounding taking time off to welcome a new child. Additionally, a new mom, recently back from maternity leave, was on hand to answer questions first-hand. More than 50 people attended the event in person and an additional 50 participated via WebEx.

Collaboration

  • In March, PWT partnered with PRIDE, The Allstate Foundation and Facing History to host a screening of the documentary "Bully" and facilitate a conversation about the signs and dangers of bullying. More than 250 employees attended the screening, and other local corporations such as Aon Hewitt, Baxter, CDW, Discover, Grainger, Kraft and Walgreens were invited to attend.

WHAT'S AHEAD FOR 2014?

  • Act as a business resource.
  • Create communications designed to promote awareness.
  • Continue to offer networking opportunities.
