At Maersk, diversity is of immense importance to us. Having a gender diverse workforce is increasingly being recognized as instrumental in improving the organisation’s performance, and also an imperative that organizations can no longer choose to ignore. It is well recognized today that gender diversity adds both tangible and intangible value, even if it requires working through the issues and costs that sometimes accompany it.
Back2Work (B2W) is a Maersk Group initiative in the same direction. It is a career transition programme for women professionals who have taken a break of 6 months or more for any reason (due to lifecycle, personal or any other reason), and wish to re-enter the professional space. The programme provides opportunities for such women to take on flexi-hour assignments with various Maersk Group companies in India.
