Recently​ ​I​ ​attended​ ​a​ ​HR​ ​Conference,​ ​wherein,​ ​majority​ ​of​ ​the​ ​speakers​ ​opined​ ​the​ ​need​ ​for​ ​the​ ​women to​ ​not​ ​take​ ​a​ ​break​ ​from​ ​their​ ​career.​ ​They,​ ​alike​ ​most​ ​of​ ​us,​ ​have​ ​their​ ​perspective​ ​loud​ ​on​ ​the​ ​issue​ ​on how​ ​there’s​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​to​ ​the​ ​career​ ​of​ ​a​ ​women​ ​than​ ​becoming​ ​better,​ ​daughters,​ ​wives,​ ​mothers​ ​or​ ​sisters​ ​etc. One​ ​of​ ​the​ ​ideas​ ​which​ ​stuck​ ​my​ ​cord​ ​was,​ ​why​ ​Women​ ​take​ ​a​ ​Pause​ ​in​ ​their​ ​careers​ ​at​ ​the​ ​first​ ​place? And​ ​once​ ​taken,​ ​what​ ​takes​ ​them​ ​so​ ​long​ ​to​ ​restart,​ ​or​ ​why​ ​does​ ​the​ ​sabbatical​ ​inevitably​ ​distances themselves​ ​from​ ​the​ ​Industry?

“Why​ ​take​ ​a​ ​break​ ​at​ ​the​ ​first​ ​place. If​ ​taken,​ ​why​ ​the​ ​sabbatical​ ​is​ ​so​ ​difficult​ ​to​ ​end” 

Women,​ ​as​ ​we​ ​all​ ​know,​ ​sometimes​ ​consensually,​ ​sometime​ ​fulfilling​ ​the​ ​priorities,​ ​take​ ​small​ ​and​ ​big sabbaticals​ ​from​ ​work.​ ​​Getting​ ​married,​ ​husband’s​ ​transfer,​ ​maternal​ ​leaves,​ ​someone​ ​has​ ​to​ ​make the​ ​house,​ ​parents,​ ​kids​ ​care​,​ ​are​ ​a​ ​few​ ​of​ ​the​ ​uncountable​ ​and​ ​unmeasurable​ ​reasons​ ​of​ ​how​ ​women are​ ​justified​ ​for​ ​taking​ ​a​ ​break​ ​from​ ​their​ ​career.​ ​And​ ​once​ ​the​ ​sabbatical​ ​begins,​ ​it​ ​never​ ​stops,​ ​or​ ​it stagnates​ ​the​ ​career​ ​from​ ​achieving​ ​optimum​ ​results. 

However,​ ​the​ ​question​ ​is​ ​not​ ​of​ ​the​ ​notion​ ​of​ ​taking​ ​a​ ​break.​ ​Following​ ​personal​ ​priorities,​ ​there’s​ ​nothing wrong​ ​in​ ​taking​ ​a​ ​sabbatical​ ​by​ ​the​ ​women,​ ​or​ ​the​ ​man​ ​of​ ​the​ ​house.​ ​The​ ​real​ ​question​ ​is,’​Why​ ​does​ ​the sabbatical​ ​end​ ​the​ ​career​’?​ ​Or​ ​Why​ ​do​ ​we​ ​not​ ​have​ ​the​ ​same​ ​number​ ​of​ ​opportunities,​ ​for​ ​the​ ​women coming​ ​from​ ​a​ ​long​ ​sabbatical,​ ​as​ ​we​ ​have​ ​for​ ​other​ ​women. 

The​ ​bigger​ ​questions,”Why​ ​do​ ​we​ ​not​ ​have​ ​the​ ​same​ ​number​ ​of​ ​opportunities,​ ​for​ ​the​ ​women coming​ ​from​ ​a​ ​long​ ​sabbatical,​ ​as​ ​we​ ​have​ ​for​ ​other​ ​women” 

How​ ​can​ ​women​ ​start​ ​their​ ​careers​ ​again​ ​after​ ​taking​ ​a​ ​break​ ​from​ ​work 

To​ ​start​ ​with,​ ​it’s​ ​the​ ​responsibility​ ​of​ ​every​ ​Industry​ ​to​ ​create​ ​opportunities​ ​for​ ​the​ ​women​ ​to​ ​comfortably resume​ ​their​ ​work​ ​after​ ​a​ ​long​ ​career​ ​break.​ ​The​ ​trust​ ​and​ ​the​ ​zeal​ ​of​ ​a​ ​career​ ​has​ ​to​ ​be​ ​re-ignited​ ​and replaced​ ​with​ ​the​ ​pessimism​ ​these​ ​women​ ​imbibe​ ​over​ ​the​ ​years. 

Upman​ ​Placements,​ ​for​ ​example,​ ​is​ ​creating​ ​opportunities​ ​for​ ​the​ ​women​ ​from​ ​the​ ​recruitment​ ​and​ ​HR industry​ ​-​ ​on​ ​a​ ​long​ ​career​ ​break,​ ​win​ ​back​ ​at​ ​the​ ​Recruiters​ ​business.​ ​It​ ​has​ ​launched​ ​a​ ​partnership model,​ ​wherein,​ ​women​ ​can​ ​partner​ ​with​ ​Upman​ ​Placements​ ​and​ ​start​ ​their​ ​entrepreneurial​ ​journey​ ​right from​ ​their​ ​homes. 

Upman​ ​is​ ​giving​ ​them​ ​resources,​ ​business,​ ​clients,​ ​team​ ​and​ ​most​ ​importantly​ ​its​ ​name​ ​to​ ​outset​ ​their career.​ ​With​ ​this,​ ​they’ll​ ​earn,​ ​as​ ​much,​ ​or​ ​more​ ​than​ ​what​ ​they​ ​could​ ​have​ ​earned​ ​otherwise,​ ​if​ ​their recruitment​ ​career​ ​had​ ​been​ ​ongoing.​ ​They​ ​can​ ​work​ ​from​ ​home,​ ​build​ ​their​ ​business,​ ​take​ ​support​ ​from the​ ​team​ ​and​ ​garner​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​recruitment​ ​business,​ ​irrespective​ ​of​ ​their​ ​geographic​ ​location.

Only​ ​by​ ​creating​ ​opportunities​ ​will​ ​we​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​give,​ ​women​ ​at​ ​home,​ ​a​ ​chance​ ​to​ ​get​ ​back​ ​to​ ​work. Yes,​ ​women​ ​who​ ​have​ ​talent,​ ​experience​ ​and​ ​qualifications​ ​do​ ​take​ ​Pause​ ​in​ ​their​ ​careers​ ​for,​ ​however, they​ ​do,​ ​can​ ​&​ ​should​ ​look​ ​at​ ​restarting​ ​​ ​their​ ​career​ ​at​ ​any​ ​phase​ ​of​ ​life.

    Hey there excellent website! Does running a blog like this require a lot of
    work? I’ve no expertise in programming but I was
    hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic but I just needed to ask.
    Many thanks!
