Name of the original practice to be transferred

Time Management

Specific context where the practice has already been implemented/ applied

The system of maternity/parental leave in Poland is very convenient for mothers and give them the opportunity to take care of children for a long period of time (1 year fully paid, parental leave up to the age of 4, social security paid for the first or second child every month). However, these tools result in women giving up their careers or rising qualifications and not being able to make up for the lost time.

Conditions of the original practice

Women willing to go back to the labour market after finishing their maternity and/or parental leave. Their primary need is to go back to the labour market.

The expectations of the target group were:

  1. How to cope with new duties and challenges?
  2. How to plan effectively and manage time?
  3. How to plan the vocational life and face challenges without feeling of neglecting other spheres of life

The barriers the beneficiaries were facing were lack of self-confidence, feeling fed up with responsibilities, problems with asking for help and saying no, effective communication.

Structures of the original practice

Marketing and recruitments as in previously mentioned practices.

Workshops in small groups – mixing theory and practice, brainstorming.
