CONAF: 44% of companies have three or more women at the highest level of the organization
“Women should also be promoted in state-owned companies, following the private model, for top management positions and as members of boards of directors,” said Cristina Chiriac, president of CONAF.
44% of companies have three or more women at the highest level, unlike 4 years ago, according to market analyzes made by Mc Kinsey & Company, globally. Research shows that the discrepancies start with the incipient layers of management, arguing that for every 100 men hired and promoted, only 72 women receive the same treatment, so a large part of them remain stuck at beginner levels.
Cristina Chiriac, stated: “Today, productivity is the key word for most organizations, and various management teams can be the secret of success. In mixed groups, at any level, more innovative approaches are developed, and the decision-making process is more complex and efficient. Companies can benefit from the critical thinking and creativity that derives from the exchange of ideas between men and women on boards. The presence of a constant number of women in management also contributes to the creation of an attractive work environment, which helps to recruit the best human resources. Future employees are increasingly interested in the issues of diversity in the workplace, and the most talented pursue more than financial rewards”.
