Becoming a new mom brings new responsibilities. Like every mother, I, too, juggled emotional and practical challenges when I resumed my work life. Iris turned this transition into a positive experience. When I rejoined, Iris welcomed me with a gift voucher and assigned me a project I preferred, specifically aligned to a promoted role just before my maternity break. The team ensured that I wasn’t overly burdened with work as I had to shoulder my motherhood responsibilities in parallel. I got a chance to work with dynamic leaders and clients, which increased my morale, and I didn’t mind putting in a few extra hours whenever required. I want to thank Iris for being such a great support system during my initial motherhood phase.

Joining Iris served as a career re-launch for me. I was working as a senior software developer for another organization when the COVID pandemic disrupted my work life. Owing to some family challenges, I could not cope with the working hours and took a break. When I learned about this opportunity at Iris and the support they extend to returning mothers at work, I decided to grab it. They scheduled interviews at my convenience and gave me ample time to brush up on my technical proficiencies, which had decreased while I was away due to my family commitments. I’m thankful to Iris for offering me the role with flexible working hours. Now, I can very well manage my work and family together.

Returning to work requires much courage and preparation to cope with the pace. Taking a break of several months for my maternity was worrisome as I was about to be promoted. When I decided to join back after a seven-month maternity break, besides offering me the promoted role, Iris provided extensive support to help me resettle in the organization. With the team cooperation, favorable working environment, and much-deserved recognition, Iris made my return-to-work transition comforting and allowed me to follow my career aspirations. I’m happy to be a part of Iris and that I got a chance to restart my career post maternity.
