My profile

Untapped Potential captures, readies and motivates educated and experienced talent, who have stepped out of the traditional workforce, to step back in a flexible way. It offers women (or care-givers) community, mentoring and professional currency during their 'gap years'​. UP cultivates opportunities in business that provides a stepping stone for returners - a Flex-Return (fixed duration full or part-time engagement). Much more than staffing and recruiting, UP ensures talent will be in the best position to step-back at their caliber - launching them for career-roles when ready. Businesses benefit from eager professionals, unavailable elsewhere, who add value at a fraction of market price. Our goal is to overcome discriminating aspects of a talent's gap years. Offering business low-risk access to high-quality talent at a low price point!

Untapped Potential is a social-enterprise that impacts the gender equity, diversity in the workplace and work life balance.
