Women in the Workplace- What do they look for?
A 2022 survey by Great Place to Work reported the “typical” US workplace is not meeting the core needs of working women. Of the nearly 4,200 working women who responded, 54% said they’re open to finding a new job in the next six months.
To retain top women employees, research shows companies must take four essential actions:
1) offer fair pay and promotions;
2) create a psychologically healthy work culture;
3) help employees find meaning at work; and
4) be flexible with remote/hybrid options.
How should employers go about making sure they hit these points? Ask your employees!
What are their needs / how can the employer help to meet those needs?
Realize that employees have lives outside of work - families, obligations and other responsibilities. Many employees, especially women, begin their second “job” when the leave the office and care for their family and children.
Women want to work in environments where their productivity still “counts” even if they are working remotely or not physically present at work.
Employers actually need to follow through once they receive the information- don’t just ask the questions and then fail to take action.
