At Raise we are revolutionising the parental leave experience.

We believe new and expecting parents should feel supported and secure, and we give employers the tools to become exemplary, overnight, in facilitating this. 

Our engagement platform delivers a fully integrated experience from pre-pregnancy through to the return to work.

We're dedicated to supporting companies in making positive changes, quickly.

say they have experienced negative or discriminatory treatment whilst pregnant or on maternity leave. This equates to 54,000 employees each year!

66%

didn't feel actively supported by their employer in the lead up to return to work.

48%

experience problems with employer contact – too little or no contact being key issues.

Personalised tools to plan your journey

What it it? 

Giving all employees a personalised journey, highlighting and notifying of key milestones such as changes in pay and next steps.

Why is it important?

Our tools put the employee in control, with all information in one place, self service.  They can plan for and manage all aspects of their leave in an intuitive and personalised way.

Meet the team

Having experienced parental leave, we were inspired to look further and learn more about others’ experiences and attitudes. 

The idea for Raise was born through speaking with hundreds of parents and line managers. 

We have a passion for ensuring that parents have a consistent, engaging experience, and positively re-enter the workplace feeling supported and ready to drive employer value. 

Together with our advisors, we bring a wealth of senior level experience from the UK’s most respected brands.

Our advisers and non-executive team include experts in HR, platform development, start-ups & employment law.
