career recess Services
Business experience tells us that talent will need company support to deal with many personal life changes that effect work performance and availability. These changes may include maternity leave, becoming a caregiver, health challenges or a sabbatical. To retain your valuable personnel assets, it is critical to invest in them and offer assistance to navigate these changes in a forward thinking equitable fashion. We are there to create a plan for your employee to exit for a career recess, stay engaged while they're out and have a successful re-entry once they return.
- Only 5-7% of women are returning to the employer that they left prior to a career recess and 70% of women feel anxious about taking time off to care for their family leading to women not asking for flexible work arrangements prior to resigning.
manager coaching Services
Whether an employee is moving to another company, retiring or taking a career recess, the manager is the most important component for a successful transition. Sensitivity training and effective communication will be essential supervisor components. Direct supervisors will acquire the largest burden of the change and will need to find the balance of their own challenges and the needs of the transitioning employee. We provide a detailed and custom plan while supporting the management team and all key stakeholders to ensure a smooth and respectful transition for all.
- 90% of employees cite lack of leadership support and ineffective coaching as their number one determining factor in resigning. A secondary determining factor in job dissatisfaction is a lack of empathy and compassion when employee faces a major life event.
