A long break in career no longer means an end to your professional life. Firms in India are giving a second chance to employees who are willing to rekindle their careers.
A lot of companies in India are offering return-to-work programme for professionals aspiring to restart or resume their career.
According to a TOI report, Shilpi Singh, HR professional, joined Airtel through the company’s return-to-work programme called ‘Step-In’. Singh had come back in the professional space after 10 long years.“Breaks enrich us in many ways. People may have taken a break from an active corporate career, but they gain experience during this phase by doing something meaningful elsewhere. Being out of the corporate world doesn’t mean that you’re not active. In fact, the way Shilpi has come back into the team, the insights she’s bringing to us and the conversations that she’s having internally & externally — it is really impressive,” TOI quoted Airtel chief people officer Amrita Padda as saying.
