Perspektive Wiedereinstieg (Prospects for Re-Entering the Workforce)
The action programme "Prospects for Re-Entering the Workforce" is conducted jointly by the Federal Government, the Federal Employment Agency and other collaboration partners. Its purpose is to support women and men in a promising return to work after family-induced absences of several years. It aggregates services and initiatives and supports exchange with federal states and associations. With its combination of information, guidance and networking, the programme offers an innovative approach for addressing women and men after a longer family phase and re-integrating them into the labour market. At the same time, employers are made aware of the potentials of women and men who return to work and sensitized for a gender-fair personnel policy. By offering household-related services, the programme also promotes insurable employment. Until 2013 the information and guidance provided by Prospects for Re-entering the Workforce reached more than 17.000 clients, 4.660 of whom were accompanied in their return to work with individual coaching and tailor-made support. In 2013 the programme received the United Nations Public Service Award (1st Prize in the gender category for North America/Europe) for its innovative implementation of a political idea with the help of the administration.
