A conglomerate company, Engro Corporation, headquartered in Karachi, Pakistan has introduced ‘Break Ke Baad Program’ for women to continue work after a career break.
Often women after completing their education and thriving in their respective fields for years take a break from work because they have to bear children. Big companies do provide women with post maternity leave for up to 3-6 months, however, it isn’t enough for all which forces them to take a long career break.
This essentially means they miss out on precious time of what could have been stepping stone in their careers. However, once they wish to join back, things immenly change in the field and so their chances of landing on a decent position becomes thin.
Engro took notice of the matter at hand and has recently come up with an amazing opportunity for professional, experienced women to rejoin the workplace after a career break. Official sources says that, “many Pakistani women quit their jobs to take a break to prioritize their personal life relations such as marriage, maternity break, or any other issue, etc. However, restarting their career after a career gap of months or years again requires a struggle for finding a suitable job.”
Break Ke Baad
Engro’s latest program, “Break Ke Baad” allows working women who are on a career break for minimum 12 months and have prior experience of at least 1 year in the corporate environment to apply for this particular position. This will allow women to get back to work after taking a career break of minimum 12 months. The program also encourages ex-engro employees to also apply for the position. There is no age limit for applying candidates.
