73% of the new mothers in India leave their job post childbirth.
But that isn’t the most alarming statistic. Out of the women that do return, 48% quit their jobs within the first 4 months.
It isn’t surprising that there are only 16% women at the senior leadership positions!
Despite more and more companies offering flexible work options and childcare facilities to their returning mothers, we don’t see a significant improvement in their retention.
With aspects like mom’s guilt, lower self-confidence, and unconscious biases coming into play, women need a lot more than flexible work options to remain in the workforce.
So, what can individuals and organisations do to ensure that women’s careers remain uninterrupted?
As a senior L&D professional with 15+ years of corporate experience and as an ICF certified coach, I’ve had the opportunity to manage, mentor, and coach several women. And I’ve seen what the power of coaching and community support can do for them.
And that’s the core of OfExperiences
As India’s only platform with a focus on working mothers, and a metric-driven approach that yields measurable results, we aim to enable organisations to provide ‘Explicit Support’ to their women employees.
We aim to support all women that are going through their motherhood journey, to feel engaged, involved and perform their best.
