The trend follows high attrition rates seen in 2022, with early last year France seeing the highest number of quits in its history, with nearly 520,000 workers voluntarily quitting their jobs.
While an active job market is generally good news for job seekers, for many highly skilled and experienced people, re-entering the job market comes with its own set of challenges, and this is where “return placements” enters the game.
It is essentially an internship, but for someone with extensive experience who has been out of the labor market for two or more years, a return internship is paid and is spread over a fixed period, usually three to six months.
Back to work
In addition to addressing staffing shortages, back-to-work internships can be mutually beneficial for employers and employees for several reasons.
People looking for a new job can fill in any remaining gaps in their resumes, while enjoying the opportunity to upskill in new technological advancements. It’s also possible to brush up on soft skills that have probably been put on the back burner during their self-imposed downtime, but are essential in the workplace.
From an employer’s perspective, return placements allow organizations to tap into a talent pool of highly experienced people who can bring a fresh perspective. They also enable organizations to actively address gender and diversity imbalances, and create opportunities for more women to move into leadership positions in the future.
Open the way
Some of the biggest companies in the world are already leading the way with their corporate return programs. Among them, Goldman Sachs (which has offered return-to-work programs since 2008), Accenture, Amazon, Klarna and Citi all offer return-to-work programs to capture talent.
The only disadvantage of a return to work program is that employment is not guaranteed at the end of the contract period, although a company generally will not want to part with a professional. experienced who has potential.
