Companies with female managers report more benefits
As can be seen, the larger a company, the more difficult it is to find women in managerial positions. And in the same way, as we move up the hierarchy of a company, the fewer women we find. However, having a diverse workforce and management positions (both gender and other types) can generate more benefits in companies.
This is stated in a report prepared by the International Labor Organization (ILO). According to this study, 57% of the companies surveyed not only increased their profits by having women in positions of responsibility and directors but also noticed a greater attraction and retention of talent, as well as improvements in creativity, innovation, and openness. The report prepared by the CSRI, although it does not affirm this fact outright, has also analyzed the relationship between corporate performance and gender diversity in management positions, concluding that there is a strong correlation between these two variables. However, the ILO report also indicates that it is not enough to have women in management and responsibility positions, but that the female presence in these positions must be at least 30% to obtain business benefits.
