Professional Returnship Programme


As part of one of our research projects, the Institute for Financial Services Zug of the Lucerne School of Business is developing a Professional Returnship Programme.

The project is supported by the Federal Office for Gender Equality.

Returnships bring women and men back to the workplace after a break of several years. Career return programmes offer women and men an opportunity to update and demonstrate their skills and rebuild their professional credibility. Employers who integrate qualified returnees with a professional approach benefit from a highly motivated, loyal, and well-trained talent pool.

Our team will offer advisory support to set up a returnship programme. This will include working with HR Managers to design the most suitable type of programme based on your company’s needs. You will have access to our Toolkit which outlines the most important steps for successful implementation. We want women and men on their return-to-work path to be part of our network.
