How Employers Can Help Women Who Are Returning To Work

Many women face challenges when returning to work, whether it’s due to maternity leave, a leave of absence, or an unplanned break related to the pandemic.

Besides having to meet difficult decisions, anxiety can arise, especially if the time off was a year or more. Being sidelined through unemployment and family obligations can also take a toll on a woman’s confidence.

The following tips were designed to help employers make such transitions easier and less stressful — for the woman returning, for her co-workers, and for the organization.
