      Back to work

      Find out what you should consider before returning to work.

      Questions to consider: part time or full time? How can I best master the balancing act between family and career? What do I need to prepare to return back to work?

      It is an advantage to return to your work. But some woman would leave their employer after parental leave for a new employer or start their own business.

      After parental leave, some woman may set a few days as home office days while the rest of the time will be set to work in the enterprise.

      Hint

      Look for jobs with flexible working hours

      The earlier you reach the office, the easier you can set your time to pick up your child from day-care or kindergarten.

      If you intend to share a job, you will need a colleague or a colleague whom is sharing the same responsibility, but has needs just like you. It is important to have a strong chemistry to support each other for long term and reliability. In this case scenario, both must agree to share the job of the partner in the event of an illness.

      Use networks and consulting

      The re-entry to work force is not easy, the demands of everyday life with childcare and work needs to be restructured. You should take your time to return to work even if your family depends on your income, only then will you be able to enjoy both childcare and work life.
