What´s the solution?
The Randstad Hungary Kft. has a great number of female colleagues, so it is very important to put emphasis on the case of women willing to become a mother or to get back into the labour market after their leave. We are concerned with this question on a strategic level, we have laid down the relevant rules of procedure in the Randstad’s company policy.
From the 5th month of pregnancy, we ensure the colleagues to have 6 hours and from the 7th month 4 hours of working-time on a daily basis. After the birth of the child, women can return gradually, as they can work 5/6/7 hours a day until the child reaches the age of 3. In several cases we can support young mothers to return to the labour market by entrusting them with tasks that might even require only 1 day weekly.
We see, that the returning young mothers are at most of the time very trustworthy employees. When they feel that their work is appreciated, they can be very loyal to the employers. Besides we notice, that as the amount of time that they can spend working is strictly fixed, many times they are working at a much higher pace. Moreover, during the time spent at home with small children, they can obtain skills in organising and multi-tasking, and these abilities are indeed highly appreciated in the labour market.
The positive impacts of these actions can obviously be measured in the employee commitment and loyalty.
