Workers frustrated at lack of female managers

Recent research has found that UK employees want their organisations to employ more female managers.


The quarterly Workmonitor report by recruitment company Randstad showed that over a third of respondents think that the performance of their organisation would improve if it had more female senior managers.


However, when there are equally suitable candidates for manager positions, 34% of respondents believe their employer tends to choose a man, regardless of the current male/female ratio.


Forty three per cent of respondents felt that working part time is definitely possible in a management position. However, when thinking about themselves, many respondents, in particular 56% of men, were concerned that if they went part time it would hinder their career.


In spite of the respondents indicating that the number of female managers in their organisation needed to increase, the research showed that 15% more workers said they personally would rather have a man as their immediate boss than a woman.
