Meet Yogeeta! Yogeeta shares her personal and moving story about returning to work after a career break and how Parexel has supported her with a 3-month sabbatical and organizing flexible working. Yogeeta re-excelled at Parexel!
- Can you introduce yourself to us?
Hello I am Yogeeta SurinderKumar, I live in India and am a Document Quality Reviewer II for the Medical Writing Services team.
- When did you join Parexel?
After a 3-year career gap due to marriage and childbirth, I joined Parexel as a Scientific Specialist in 2016. I was very enthusiastic and happy about my career at Parexel; however, my dreams were put on hold when my daughter was diagnosed with Autism in 2017. I was advised by her doctors to quit my job/career and completely focus on her during her initial developing years. I was upset about my daughter’s health and that by being a mother I would have to give up my job and career aspirations.
- How did Parexel help?
I discussed this personal issue with a manager in Medical Writing Services, and she was a real ray of light. My manager worked with Parexel HR to arrange flexible working hours and work-from-home options for me so that I could stay at home and focus on my daughter and simultaneously focus on my career as well. I was granted a 3-month sabbatical so that I could give all the care and attention that my daughter needed during that time.

- How did Parexel and your managers support you after your sabbatical?
After the 3-month sabbatical when I resumed work, given my personal situation, writing a document seemed more demanding and then decided to switch to document quality review. I am so grateful that the Medical Writing Services management team believed in me, and my abilities, and that I was given the opportunity to transition to a Document Quality Reviewer role.
I am incredibly thankful to Parexel and consider myself fortunate to be a part of the Parexel family. I want to express my gratitude towards the various facilities and benefits that Parexel provides to its employees, these benefits motivate and encourage me to work daily.
Thank you Parexel for always going above and beyond to help its employees. I am proud to be a part of the Parexel family - We respect and care for EVERYONE, EVERYDAY, IN EVERY WAY “with Heart ™”!
Thank you Yogeeta for sharing such a personal story.
