This paper presents the results of the "Work, Parenting and Careers" survey of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in Great Britain, released in November 2002. The CIPD's work shows that the lower paid are most likely to give up work completely when they become parents. The highest earners tend to make the fewest changes to working hours. The new measures are also likely to help women. As the CIPD's Annual Reward Survey 2003 shows, around one fifth of organizations plan to introduce childcare voucher for their staff in 2003 as part of their recruitment and retention package.
