Women and the talent crunch

by 24 Feb 2009

Government and corporate leaders need to re move barriers facing women in the workplace, particularly those that make it difficult for women to balance the demands of work and family, in order to meet long-term workforce needs, according to a recent Manpower whitepaper, The Underworked Solution: Women and the Talent Crunch.

The paper said that workplace policies should not reinforce an obsolete work structure and that pay, benefits, security and retirement rules must move away from the 40-hour work ing week towards true flexibility.

It also noted that women can help them selves to progress in the changing world of work through training and further education.
