I have been meaning to write this article for sometime, mind you it is the only way I am going to empty my inbox! I didn’t want to delete them as I felt they were quite unique and an interesting niche, so I wanted to give them a mention.
They are a relatively new company called ten2two, the name is based on the ideal hours for a mum, who wants to carry on working once the kids are old enough to go to school or nursery. Although I am not a mum, but a proud father I can relate to this on a number of levels, but for me to have been able to work from home and watch my two daughters grow up has been a privilege, which many fathers miss.
It is an undeniable fact that there are many professional and highly qualified women (and not forgetting the men of course) do not work, because companies generally do not have the imagination that maybe someone with the skills and experience could actually achieve the same if not more, than less experienced candidates who work 9to6.
I know I have said this before, but I will never forget meeting one of the top consultants at a major search and select company who worked flexible hours, she produced more revenue than her colleges in nearly half the time while bringing up her children.
Thankfully I am lucky to have a boss who was willing to take a chance, apart from not being in the office I am in another country and in the time I have been with Arithon, I have managed to double the amount of new clients to the previous year, which says it all I think.
There is no doubt that ten2two will suceed, the key is getting clients to see the advantages.
