Genpact, one of the largest BPO in India has 400 to 500 women employees who take maternity leave annually and post maternity majority of them found it difficult to return back to the work since they had to face the challenge in maintaining a balance between the family and professional responsibility.
Hence Genpact has come out with ‘Returning Moms Programme’, an initiative to engage the female employees post maternity phase where they can select the shift timings according to their choice and convenience. Not only this, the new mothers can also start working from the nearest branch of the organisation from their residence. This initiative will definitely encourage and engage more women employees to return back for their second innings.
Under this program, Genpact already has facilities such as day care for employee’s children and stock parking i.e reserved space in a parking lot for cars driven by pregnant women or new mothers.
