Do You Have the Benefits Women in the Workplace Want?
Historically, women have been underrepresented in company leadership, especially women of color. During the pandemic, 54 million women left the workforce globally. A report from McKinsey & Company, surveying over 40,000 employers and 12 million people, revealed that women leaders are switching their jobs at rates higher than ever seen before.
Here we explore why women leaders are moving on and how your organization can better support their health – and the health of the next generation of women leaders in the coming year. This includes a focus on benefits and what these packages can offer to women in the workplace.
Prioritize company-wide inclusivity and well-being
The McKinsey study finds, 43% of women leaders are burned out compared to only 31% of men at the same level. This is partly due to the extra work women typically take on that goes unrecognized, such as supporting well-being and fostering diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) efforts within their organizations.
