Hosted by Nicola Raho (Head of UK Resourcing) and Lesley Martin (Head of Diversity & Inclusion) at Legal and General.
In today’s working world there is no set route defined for how people’s careers can develop and evolve over time. And as such businesses are increasingly recognising that their Employer Brand needs to present a more powerful offering in order to reach the best talent. For instance, Career Returnships offer senior talented professionals the opportunity to return to the workplace after taking an extended break from work.
For our hosts, Legal and General, employer brand is all about bringing to life what they offer their people; the experience and opportunities that make them a great place to work. It’s about engaging and inspiring their people internally and attracting the best talent externally.
To ensure they attract the best talent they are committed to ensuring they have a diverse and inclusive approach to resourcing including looking at new ways of attracting talent. With this in mind, Legal and General are designing career returners programme to allow individuals who have chosen to take a career break the opportunity to return to work.
At this Diversity Think Tank we will be discussing the concept of Career Returnships and addressing the following points regarding how you design an effective one:
- Sources of where the best place to advertise and promote the programme; keeping it broad and not gender specific
- How to support career returners once they start
- How to design and incorporate any specifics into the recruitment and on-boarding process
- Providing hiring managers with the right level of support to deliver the programme and follow correct processes.
