Three-quarters of your staff are thinking about taking a career break.

You'll increase your staff retention rate by offering sabbaticals, and bring long-term financial benefits to your company. Also, with a well-formed career break policy, you'll be able to attract talented staff when recruiting.

We can help you minimise the risks, and help your staff organise a productive and fulfilling career break.

In this section, you can find information on:

  • A career break consultation for your HR department. This can be done in person or by phone.
  • A talk on career breaks for your employees. The emphasis is on making the most of it and returning to work afterwards, to ensure you get as much out of your employees' career breaks as they do.
The talks and consultations are delivered by the UK's leading career break expert, who has a 100% satisfaction record for previous sessions.

Do you have reservations about career breaks? You might feel you can't lose the staff. You might be concerned about the image your company projects. Or you might simply fear that if you let your staff go, they won't come back!

We understand exactly what concerns you might have and can help you shape a career break policy that brings benefits to your company.

The consultation is an hour long, and is usually done over the phone. You also receive a tailored pack which includes an action plan, contact details for relevant organisations, and your draft career break policy. A telephone consultation is £100; a face-to-face one depends on travel time and expenses (we're based in Manchester). If you're not satisfied, we will refund your money in full. Call us on 0161 4488846 or email for more information, or to book.


You can have the UK's leading career break expert come to your company to deliver an exciting, inspiring and informative talk. Each talk can be tailored to your needs, and those of your staff, but it usually comprises:

  • The basics of career breaks
  • An overview of all the career break options
  • How to make the most out of your career break
  • Planning your career break
  • Coming back
  • Handouts for all staff

We encourage your staff to make responsible decisions, to be flexible, and to help the company help them. The presentation shows how the break can bring benefits to both employers and employees.
