Prime Time: Returning to the workforce after a long career gap?

13:54 mins

Synopsis: Mothers returning to work after a career gap is one of the biggest demographics that could be engaged and supported better – be it through flexible work arrangements, affordable childcare support, and more. A study has found that some of the biggest obstacles that mothers re-entering the workforce face include age, technological and skills gap and generational diversity among others. These were the views of close to 40,000 Mums@Work members on re-entering the workforce in a study led by Mums@Work and Ngee Ann Polytechnic. We speak to Sher-li Torrey, who is the founder of Mums@Work on how her enterprise supports these women.
