Speaker Carol Fishman Cohen presents:

Visionary HR and Diversity Leaders: Propose Launching an Employer Return to Work Program

Return to work programs change lives and provide a leadership development opportunities

  • HR Managers looking for a high impact, high visibility opportunity and professional development experience should propose launching a return to work program at their employer for professionals returning to work after an extended career break.
  • These programs, often based on an internship-like model called a “returnship,” are a win for all involved
  • The employer gets access to and develops a pipeline of experienced, educated potential hires - a hidden talent pool
  • Those who are returning to work after a career break who are accepted to the program get a life-transforming opportunity
  • The employer can use the program to reconnect with high performing alumni who left to go on career break.
  • Current and former employees of an employer with a return to work program know their organization understands that life’s progression may involve a career break, and validates that choice by establishing a formal pathway back to work.
  • The career path that includes a career break becomes "normalized" and career breaks become completely reframed.
