What Women Want (At Work): Working Toward Personal and Professional Wellness
Data tells us that the pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on women. Now is our opportunity to commit to ambitious goals, measure progress and reshape a future of work that works better for all. ManpowerGroup’s new research tells us that more attention must be paid by employers to enabling the balance of family care responsibilities and careers. We can help women and all the people in our organizations if we just ask ourselves the question, “Do we really know what’s going on in their lives?” This includes developing and growing existing talent within organizations, keeping the best and brightest, while also driving skills and growth. For the post-pandemic era, organizations need to commit to creating focused, flexible, inclusive work environments that give women better opportunities to succeed.
