Women at Work

Global employers are highly interested in effective approaches to attract and retain talent in order to stay competitive in the current and future marketplace. This may be particularly relevant in developing countries, where many employers are focusing their growth strategies. Often, women in these countries are ambitious, educated and passionate about their work, but are hampered when it comes to delivering their full potential due to cultural limitations and the "double burden" that women around the world face. Even in developed markets, an aging workforce means that there will be a need for increased talent as more employees retire. Women can help fill that gap if employers are able to provide them with solutions, policies and programs that allow female employees be successful throughout the lifespan.
