Finding and retaining top talent will continue to be a challenge


The job market is only getting tighter. Couple that with women opting out of work either by choice or necessity due to rising costs of child care — and a company’s ability to hire top talent will be exponentially impacted. 

83% of working moms will leave a job for a position that better supports their work-life considerations.

43% of women leave the workforce after having children.

Replacing an employee who leaves after childbirth can cost over 200% of annual salary.

With more than 1.2 million users on our platform, and growing, we believe it is more important than ever to support parents in the workforce.

What Employers & Moms Need: Maternityships®


Parental leave can result in critical skill gaps in organizations for prolonged periods. Offering and supporting parental leave through our Maternityship® program gives parents the space to do the important work of bonding with their child while ensuring business continuity, driving better outcomes for everyone.

A Maternityship® in action: Case Study

The Mom Project and Etsy are proud partners

The Mom Project is proud to partner with Etsy to help secure backfill coverage, allowing Etsy's employees peace of mind when they decide to take leave. To date, The Mom Project has filled nearly 200 roles with Etsy. These roles were a mix of Maternityship backfills and full-time positions, all across functions.

"The Mom Project is one of our original and key partners in our leave coverage program. Their dedicated support in identifying high-quality talent within a short time-frame is key to this program. It’s great to have a partner with such commitment to supporting moms that aligns with Etsy’s parental leave plan goals."
