Beate Chelette in Starting to Know Podcast

In this episode with Ishu Singh, Beate shared how leadership skills can help you bring more impact to your business. Listen to the episode here.

In this video, I will introduce you to a program, developed by Johnson & Johnson that is called RE-IGNITE. This is a ‘back to work program’ that is specifically aimed at the many women returning to the workforce after they’ve been out for maternity leave.

What excites me most is that Johnson & Johnson has a 100% success rate with this program! They have figured out something that not many companies have. And they benefit from having very qualified women—and men—enter the program, succeed and come to work for them.

How do they do it?

Johnson and Johnson put their money where their mouth is. They are a family company after all. They do it right and the program is working well. While it has a strong focus on working mothers who have taken time off to care for their children, it is also offered to fathers.  And –not surprising—it has been made available to veterans who are entering the workforce after their military service is completed. Reignite has proven to be a powerful new source of strong, successful, dedicated qualified employees.

Watch the video to learn the details. Perhaps you’ll be able to suggest a program like this where you work, or where you are in management so that your organization can benefit from this very successful new way to integrate workers back into careers.

It’s wonderful to see how well the program is working. My hope is that other organizations can learn from this and create other back to work programs offering new opportunities for the moms, dads and our servicemen and women.
