From raising children to pursuing higher education, there are various reasons why women take a career break today.

Our whitepaper 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.

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.
