About this talk

Life happens. Whether it's taking a break for health reasons, supporting family members, having children, or for a variety of personal reasons, having a gap in your CV used to be seen as a disadvantage. Now, many organisations are committed to supporting individuals returning to the workforce as career returners are largely seen as an untapped resource of skills and knowledge. Join this panel to learn about: -The logic behind supporting career returners (e.g. life experience, need for skilled workforce especially in ageing countries where you don’t have enough workers) -What your organisation can do to better support and attract career returners -For returners: how can you update your skills and feel confident about returning to work -Tactical steps & examples
