Helping Female Execs Stay on Track

In an attempt to stave off the loss of female executives who leave the work force to care for children or their elderly parents, Kelly Watson has an idea: Job sharing. Watson’s executive headhunting firm, Career Partners, has been promoting the concept of having female executives job share while they’re in the midst of personal issues. "Right now, we’re burning through executives who are tired of working 70-hour weeks," she told the Salt Lake Tribune [1]. "There’s no real reason to reinvent the wheel. Job sharing can work, but it’s got to be managed correctly." (April 2007)
