We believe caregiving is as important as capitalism in order for a society to thrive. UP offers a network of support, skillUP Platform and curated Flexreturn™ Engagements at Pledging Partner companies. Pledging Partners commit to measure Candidates by actual skills and years of experience. The Flexreturn™ offers Candidates contacts, currency (in years and skills) and confidence. Often these lead to regular part-time or full-time roles. Through our event-driven programmatic approach, returning professional and pivoting women are supported with peers, mentors and best-of-breed coaches to develop their go-to-market strategy, elevator pitch, interview skills, resume (UP Profile). Our skills assessments rely on state-of-the-art tools and pinpoint skillUP courses for Candidates to pursue. We curate roles based on Candidate skills and aspirations. Repeat Clients highlight how well we know our Candidates and have a higher success rate for role matching. We support businesses in search, return-to-work seminars, skillUP Programs and one-off, cohort and enterprise delivery of top-female talent. Companies benefit from high-caliber professionals, bringing them on board via our Flexreturn™ Model reduces their risk and cost.
