From raising children to pursuing higher education, there are various reasons why women take a career break today.
But how do employers view women who wish to re-join the workforce after a career hiatus?
Our whitepaper Understanding Employers' Attitudes Towards Women Returning To Work - A Guide for Employers has been created to assist hiring managers and employers in identifying and addressing any possible biases in recruitment and inclusion to ensure women are given the opportunity to re-gain entry into the workforce after a career gap.
It draws on the perspectives of white-collar professionals working across Asia and provides recommendations on what organisations can do to change current attitudes of how returning women are perceived and treated in the workplace today.
72% of women in China have taken a career break at some point in their lives.
This whitepaper explores:
This whitepaper is based on a survey conducted in December 2016 to better understand existing perceptions of returning women across key markets in Asia. The survey gathered the views of over 2,200 clients and female professionals across China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Additional interviews and research were collated to complement survey findings.
