In the dynamic world of career and personal fulfilment, working moms stand out as true superheroes, juggling the demands of both the professional and personal realms with grace and resilience. At RecruitMyMom, we recognise and celebrate the strengths and qualities that make working moms exceptional employees.
Here is why moms make the best employees and how RecruitMyMom is committed to supporting them in finding fulfilling careers that align with their desires.
Exceptional prioritisation skills:
One of the defining characteristics of working moms is their unparalleled ability to prioritise. From managing deadlines at work to creating a nurturing environment at home, working moms effortlessly navigate various responsibilities, showcasing a level of prioritisation prowess that is second to none. RecruitMyMom understands the value of this skill set in the workplace and actively seeks to match employers with talented working moms who can prioritise diverse tasks and responsibilities.
Resilience and adaptability:
The challenges working moms face are vast and varied, requiring high resilience and adaptability. Working moms are adept at staying composed under pressure, whether dealing with unexpected work projects or handling the unpredictable nature of family life. We recognise the strength of facing and overcoming challenges and champion individuals who bring a resilient and adaptable spirit to any workplace.
Hiring working moms brings a powerful and often underestimated asset into the workplace: empathy. Working moms' unique experiences and challenges daily cultivate a profound sense of understanding and compassion. This heightened empathy fosters a supportive and inclusive workplace culture and enhances team dynamics. By virtue of their roles as caregivers, working moms inherently grasp the importance of effective communication, active listening, and recognising individual needs. This emotional intelligence is vital in creating a collaborative and beneficial work environment where colleagues feel seen, heard, and valued.
The infusion of empathy into the workplace enhances employee satisfaction and contributes to increased morale, innovation, and overall success. Recognising the invaluable role that empathy plays, hiring working moms is an investment in creating a workplace that thrives on understanding, cooperation, and shared success.

Strong communication skills:
Effective communication is the cornerstone of success in any workplace, and working moms shine in this area. Working moms possess exceptional communication skills that foster collaboration and understanding, whether coordinating with colleagues, negotiating with clients, or supporting their families. RecruitMyMom understands the power of clear and concise communication, and we are dedicated to connecting employers with job-seeking moms who excel in communicating well in both written and spoken form.
Dedication and reliability:
Working moms have a passion for both their careers and their families. They care about both. This passion translates into unwavering dedication to their professional and personal responsibilities. RecruitMyMom and our clients who employ our skilled moms recognise the immense value of hiring job-seeking working moms who approach their work with enthusiasm and commitment, and we actively support working moms in finding careers that align with their passions and goals.
"At RecruitMyMom, we firmly believe that working moms are not just employees; they are invaluable assets to any organisation", says Phillipa Geard, CEO and Founder of RecruitMyMom.
Through our commitment to connecting employers with the untapped talent community of skilled working moms, we aim to create a workplace landscape that values motherhood and diversity, celebrating the unique strengths that working moms bring.
To all the working moms out there: you are not just managing a career and a family; you are forging a path of empowerment, and we are here to support you at every step.
Your journey is inspiring, and at RecruitMyMom, we believe in your potential to achieve greatness in both your professional and personal life.
