Why Hire Women On Career Breaks

According to the World Bank Malaysian Economic Monitor, as of 2012, more than 60% of local university graduates are women. However, as of 2015, women constitute only 54.1% of the Malaysian workforce. 
 
This means that we are facing an acute brain drain situation where our professional women citizens are leaving the workforce for various reasons, creating critical gaps in our labour force.
 
However, with the recent strategic thrust to optimise and unlock the full potential of female talent, professional women who have been on career breaks are looking to make a comeback. Most women who are seeking to return to the workforce have proven to be mature and highly enthusiastic. Many have strong education credentials and significant prior work experience. 

Additionally, companies have much to gain from encouraging gender diversity in the workplace. Diversity in any form encourages excellence via competition, mutual respect and collaborations.
