San Francisco, March 26 (SocialNews.XYZ) At least 65% of women agree that the pandemic has caused them to rethink the place of work in their lives, according to a new study.
According to a Gartner survey, out of 3,515 employees, almost 70% of women with children agree that the pandemic has changed the way they value some aspect of their life outside of work.
“In a hybrid work design – where women are more likely than men to benefit from remote working – they may suffer from leadership bias,” said Alexia Cambon, research director within the HR practice of Gartner, in a press release.
“Fifty-nine percent of female knowledge workers think office workers will be considered high performers, and 78% think office workers are more likely to be promoted,” Cambon added.
A previous Gartner survey of 2,971 business leaders shows that 64% believe onsite workers perform better, and 76% say onsite workers are more likely to be promoted.
“Almost two-thirds of women have increased expectations of flexible working,” Cambon said.
“Organizations need to create an environment that empowers and trusts employees to choose the work schedule that meets their needs,” Cambon added.
