- One informative kit

The informative kit, targeting the development of soft skills, will be structured in two parts – one dedicated to department managers where we will present a series of tools and instructions to help them better understand the newly -returned employees’ needs. The second part will be dedicated to the employees returning from parental leave and will contain advices, suggestions that will ease their transition to working life. The kit will also contain a set suggestions that will help the manager allocate a dedicated colleague who will provide support and guidance for the returning employee.
