At Tiger, we feel very lucky that our management team is made up, for the most part, of strong women! However, we know this isn’t the norm and, according to research from Catalyst, only 29% of senior management roles worldwide were held by women in 2019. In the UK, we fare slightly better, with 37.2%
With International Women’s Day still fresh in our memories and the looming mandatory gender pay gap reporting deadline in April, the topic of encouraging female talent in the workforce is more prevalent than ever.
Companies are now dedicating time and resources to finding solutions that go beyond simply hiring more women. While this works on paper, it is up to senior decision makers to examine their existing workplace culture and start to implement innovative structures, policies and procedures that make their company a welcoming place to work. Only then will the workplace become one that encourages development and growth.
