Why should companies hire single mothers? Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I am going to break down five reasons explaining why companies should hire more single mothers. Suppose you are a company that does not have a single mother as an employee. This is for you. If you are a company looking to increase your customer base, then hiring a single mother is a good idea for customer engagement and services. Companies should hire single mothers because it’s primarily women who shop. If you have a mother for single mothers as an employee, they will come back because it develops customer engagement.
Why Should Companies Hire Single Mothers?
Single Mothers Are Self-Motivated
Single mothers are highly motivated to work hard to provide for their kids and support the family to live a happy lifestyle. Although it can get overwhelmed, we know we are doing this for our children and their future. We own to it ourselves to inspire our kids that life doesn’t end when something does not work out. We won’t need a lot of motivation as we get them from our kids.
In the workplace, managers always look for employees to support and encourage each other. We are already self-motivated and willing to get things done.
Single Mothers Are Dedicated
Single mothers demonstrate this by staying focused and giving our full-on dedication to the company we work with. We face many challenges in-wit and out-wit work, but we do not let this affect our ability to work hard. We are not here to play but to work on a long-term basis. Some single mothers will be happy to work for a company almost a lifetime down the timeline.
This is very important in the workplace because you will be able to show employers how far you are willing to progress within the company.
Single Mothers Are Mult-taskers
Believe it or not, single mothers are First-class muti-taskers. If you don’t believe me, try paying the bills, mortgage or rent for an apartment/house and being a mother. Try cooking, being children’s best cheerleaders and nurses – the list goes on. If we can do all that within 24hrs, surely, we are capable of multi-tasking at work.
In the workplace, depending on how busy the company is, you will be required to work on under pressure, and you may need to multi-task quite a lot and still be able to stay calm.
Single Mothers Are Risk-Takers
Single Mothers make a lot of risky decisions daily. There’s no learning course or a book that teaches you how to be a Mother. We trust our instinct and take risks, for example, leaving our kids home to the shops to get a bottle of milk or a loaf of bread. Or leave the cooking to check on your crying baby in the living room.
In the workplace, sometimes you need to take quick action when needed. For example, if a colleague hurts themselves, there are no managers or supervisors about it, but at the same time, you have customers to serve. What would you do?
Single Mothers Are Time Managers
Time management is a crucial skill every single mother uses daily at home. We are always on a time scale, from when we wake up in the morning to the next. When the kids are in school, we are on a constant time watch. I mean we literally time everything we do. For example, we schedule how long it will take to wash the first bash of dirty laundry. And how long will it take to get to the doctors and do grocery shopping just in time to pick up the kids from school.
In the workplace, ensuring we are on time and meet the deadline of a task is a must. Some companies have a project that needs to be done within a certain time, which you will have to work on at the same time as your regular duties.
We Are Hustlers
No matter what Single mothers get up to, we always find a way to work things out. We do this for one reason only – Our Kids. Without them, we are nothing. I believe your life means nothing until you are a mother or a parent. Single mothers deserve the highest support needed. We are operating like Robots in a human form. It’s not easy at all, both mentally and physically.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the post. If you are hiring a company, please consider single mothers. We are more than capable of doing anything and everything. We are smart and very clever. If you know a single mother that needs a job but feels insecure about getting judged, please show some love and share this with her.
I hope you enjoyed that.
