Full Service Recruiting and Job Postings
Why hire returners?
Soft skills are critical to workplace success. 44% of executives believe the lack of soft skills is the biggest proficiency gap in the US*. Mature talent returning from a career pause (“returners”) often require less training, are immediately productive and show greater staying power. Returners possess business acumen, perspective, an ability to self-direct and bring a strong work ethic to their role. Returners are energized and intentional in their desire to contribute to an organization’s mission and culture.
