Managing Transitions: Before, During and After Leave – A Planning Resource Guide for Employees and Employers
The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA), Women in APEGA Committee, Apr 2014
This guide is designed to assist APEGA Members who are considering a maternity or paternal leave. It is also designed to assist their employers. Experience has shown that without forethought, rejoining an organization or reentering the workforce can be frustrating, especially when expectations are not managed. These transitions can be managed effectively. Knowing what to expect and building a positive, welcoming business culture will entice valued and talented employees to return. This means that leaves of absences will not disrupt career progression, productivity, project deadlines or employee development. Retention means business can continue with minimal disruption.
