  • What's Inside

    With calls for increased female representation in executive positions louder than ever, we look at the positive impact that female leadership has on employees and their perception of their organization’s strategy.

    Our report asks the question:

    “How do female-led companies differ from male-led companies?”

    We analyzed a subset of our data, made up of 60,000 employees and 3,000 managers across 43 countries. This subset was limited to survey responses where the gender, seniority, and reporting lines of leaders was clearly defined, and the companies we consider to be “women-led” are those with more than 50% female representation in management.

    What you will learn

    • The difference between male- and female-led companies
    • How female leadership affects employee perception of strategy
    • The contributing factors of high strategy scores in female-led companies
    comma

    "Gender equality isn’t a nice-to-have, it has a direct impact on how employees perceive strategy and cultivates more belief in a company’s mission."

    A deep dive into the data behind the world of work.
