Two Groups You Can’t Ignore (but Probably Do) in the War for Talent

This article discusses the importance of targeting former employees & workforce returnees for companies who are in the ongoing war for talent. Opting for alumni is beneficial for several reasons, not the least of which is their knowledge of the organisation and existing performance record.

Workforce returnees may temporarily opt to leave for many reasons, including starting a family or taking care of aging family members. Though this is predominantly an issue which affects women, the number of men being touched by this issue is growing.

Many international organisations have implemented formal return-to-work programs, as they ease alumni back into the company with the goal of a permanent role at the end of the program.

WCM sponsors a similar returnship program for women looking to return to careers in capital markets: Return to Bay Street - a program brings experienced women back to the senior roles from which they left, rather than them having to work their way up the ladder again.
