I felt well-supported by Horváth and my colleagues throughout my entire parental leave. I worked part-time for six months and, as a new mother, was able to flexibly adapt my working hours to the new situation. I also participated in an internal parental leave program here in Budapest, which was very helpful.
My family and I decided to take a sabbatical this year and spent a year traveling the world in a van. This was also met with a lot of support by Horváth and was no problem for the team, which I am also very grateful about. In general, Horváth offers me a lot of flexibility: From the opportunity of working part-time and the hybrid model, where you work from home and from the office to my sabbatical and the option of working from abroad.
Women in leadership positions
The candid conversations and support at all stages of my professional career and the feeling of being genuinely listened to - these are just some of the things that I value so much in my two female managers. They actively stand up for me and other women - not only at Horváth, but in the consulting world in general, ensuring even more visibility and empowerment.
Women@Horváth have become more visible in recent years and we have built a strong community. Working together in person or virtually, here in Hungary or across national borders, has led to us seeing each other regularly at events and actively exchanging ideas.
