5 Ways to "REWRITE" Your STORY and Take Back Your POWER When You're Broken
5 Ways you can take back your career after maternity leave
Knowledge is power, ladies.
‘Women are likely to feel mixed emotions when returning to work after maternity leave,’ says Paul Jenkins, founder and CEO of the UK’s only recruitment site to specialise in maternity cover, maternitycover.com. ‘In some cases, they’ll find their jobs have changed slightly. In other cases, their jobs may be completely different to the ones they left.
‘The best way to deal with this period of emotional and psychological adjustment is to plan and prepare in advance. Know your rights and think strategically. It’s normal to lack confidence at the beginning, but important to know that it can return just as quickly. It’s up to you.’
With that in mind, here are 5 ways you can get back in the game after maternity leave:
1. Preparation and planning.Returning to work is both exciting and nerve-racking. You’re back in a familiar environment, but everything feels different. Make that transition easier by thinking ahead. Create a back to work plan with your employer. This should include a handover period that allows you time to adjust and address potential concerns. The plan can be adjusted, depending on how well you settle back in.
2. Stay close to colleagues.Despite having your hands full with a new baby, it really pays to maintain good relationships with colleagues whilst on maternity leave. They are more likely to welcome you back and help with any problems you encounter during those early weeks/months. Don’t forget that this is a period of adjustment for them, as well as you.
