My old boss ( a woman who at the time wasn’t a mum) used to say working mums make great staff because they are the most efficient people on the planet.
It seems the clever folks at the Huffington Post agree. They’ve published Ten Reasons Why Working Mums Make Kick-Ass Employees
Apparently our creativity, financial acumen and ability to multi-task are in demand, along with time management and negotiation skills.
Unfortunately the perception is all too great that working mums come as a cost to business rather than as an asset.
I completely understand it’s annoying when we have to leave on time or else our kids will be left on the footpath, but there are definitely benefits.
Are working mums good employees? I know I’m biased but I think so 🙂
