Empowering Women in the Workplace

Just as a myriad of cultures make up the fabric of Asia Pacific, conversations and sentiments on gender diversity vary. With the debate ever non-conclusive, the purpose of this whitepaper is to draw results and information from past research, sentiments from our client and candidate database across 10 markets in Asia Pacific, and provide recommendations on empowerment in the workplace.

Beyond the focus on gender diversity, we hope the recommendations here can help organisations to start somewhere  - to empower women to charge ahead in their careers, developing a new generation of female leaders to create more diverse and successful teams.

80% of women surveyed think they are under-represented in leadership positions in business, compared to 59% of men.

This whitepaper explores:

  • Career priorities of working professionals
  • How female leaders are regarded in the workplace
  • The need for equal representation of female leaders within an organisation
  • What companies can do to empower women in their careers

This whitepaper is based on a survey conducted in January 2016 to better understand existing perceptions of gender diversity across key markets in Asia Pacific. The survey gathered the views of over 4,400 clients and active job seekers across Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Additional interviews and research were collated to complement survey findings.
