Is your Business Overlooking High Calibre Female ‘Career Break’ Talent?


Media attention recently has focused on equal pay for women and the Government is currently in consultation about forcing companies to report the gender pay gap. A new Equality and Human Rights Commission Survey is also looking into an alleged 54,000 women losing their jobs because they are pregnant and many women report having difficulty in finding a job once they have had a career break that is flexible enough to suit the hours they have available.

Some of these issues will take a long time to resolve, but Reality HR is already leading the way when it comes to spotting and providing roles that suit high calibre women returning from a career break.

Reality HR Managing Director, Laura Davis explains: “Some years ago I had this hunch that there must be many highly qualified women who left full-time HR positions to start a family, so I developed the Reality HR Flexible Working Hours Model on which I have grown the company to 17 employees, 16 of which are female.”
