A chance to ‘ReConnect’ with prime employer Vodafone

Some years ago, Vodafone launched the world’s largest recruitment initiative via “ReConnect” - support for women on career breaks.

ReConnect represents a significant milestone in Vodafone’s journey towards becoming the best employer for women by 2025. Across Vodafone’s 26 markets, 1,000 women have gained management and frontline positions as they embark on their transition back into the workforce.

Vodafone believes in diversity, development and empowerment and so they created web-based personal development trainings, in partnership with the ECC - and have opened up their ReConnect E-Learning Modules to everyone, publicly. The modules can be taken in 10-15 minutes and are available via LinkedIn.

How ReConnect has helped women workers

Is ReConnect working in practice? The answer is a resounding "yes". One female Vodafone employee says: “On my career break I took care of my first child and I also had my second baby. I was always trying to explain and re-explain myself and justify my decision. But with Vodafone it was such a smooth and positive situation that I experienced. I feel really happy. It’s the first time in my life that I can be a good professional, and a good mother and wife, at the same time.”
