ABSTRACT
The article talks about helping women return to work in Great Britain. It is noted that more than 500,000 women in Great Britain want to return to work after having children but cannot find suitable jobs. It cites a Women Like Us survey focusing on retention rates among women placed in part-time or flexible jobs which showed that 87 per cent were still there beyond the crucial three-month point. The required skills of managing women returning to the workplace include communication, negotiation, giving feedback and managing performance.
