The concept of taking a career break isn’t new, but perhaps we need a new way to approach them. This session dives into the AICPA's recently released toolkit "Leave of Absence as a Retention & Re-Entry Tool, " and focuses on its practical application. The goal is collaboration between employees and employers to create a mutually beneficial path forward using extended leave _as a tool._ This session is meant to catapult organizations forward as you prioritize developing and maintaining your leadership pipelines and is ideal for leaders in firms who are looking for a new approach with practical implementation ideas. Join us to explore how to empower your employees to predictably pause their career for a set period of time in order to prioritize another part of life—but with full expectation of re-entering the workforce with their current employer.
