Rachel Zoe's Office Nursery

Rachel Zoe Office Nursery

In 2014, style maven and businesswoman extraordinaire, Rachel Zoe, discovered that 5 of her staff members were to become mothers. Being a mother herself, and having had the opportunity, as a business owner, to have her boys, Skylar and Kaius with her much of the time during office hours, Rachel knew she had to do everything in her power to provide this opportunity for the women who work for her.

The solution was a custom-built Rachel Zoe Office Nursery which was contracted next-door to the West Hollywood Rachel Zoe Studio. A place, close-at-hand, that allows her staff members to carry out their work and be near their children.

Seeing how motivated and committed the mothers on my team were after returning from maternity leave and being able to set up their babies in the nursery has only solidified my belief that every company should consider this option. Sure it required us to make additional investments—the physical space, the insurance required to protect everyone, the furnishings—but what we are getting in return is invaluable; the working mothers at our company can improve and grow our business without having to sacrifice spending precious time with their babies at such a crucial stage in their mother-child relationships.

As a female employer of female staff, Rachel Zoe has drawn a line in the sand and beckons other businesses to follow. Not only will working mums be more productive, but they will feel more valued and appreciated for the amazing women they are.

Seems Rachel not only sets the trends for what to wear, but how to treat employees too!
