📌 Gender pay gap:
As of 2019, salaried women earned about 18% less than their male counterparts. Women, especially those living on a single income, are looking for better-paying jobs with more flexibility and better #benefits.
📌 The pandemic has impacted women’s financial and mental health:
The jobs women tend to have were disproportionately affected by economic slowdown and shutdowns. This has created financial insecurity for many, which can take a toll on mental health.
📌 Women leaving or reducing hours to dedicate time to care giving:
Many women have had no choice but to reduce hours or leave their jobs entirely to care for children or family at home. The logistical, financial, and emotional pressures of caregiving can take a major toll. In fact, according to a Harvard study, 80% of women surveyed said caregiving affected their productivity at work.
📌 Opting for remote jobs:
More and more women are opting for flexible or remote jobs to help juggle bringing in an income and caring for kids or family. However, this can be a risky move if companies aren’t guaranteeing the same opportunities for advancement to remote employees.
In order for companies to retain or attract female workers, they should take proactive steps to support women’s health needs in their policies and begin nurturing a #workplaceculture that’s empowering, inclusive, and supportive.
One way to support and empower your female workers is through a Corporate Wellness program that addresses their health and well-being through a holistic approach.
