Over the years, the US has seen a surge in female employment. So much so that today women hold a majority of jobs in the country, making up 50.04% of the total workforce, cutting across industries and hierarchies. This International Women’s Day, Piplsay reached out to working Americans to find out the perception that exists around working women. Organizations can leverage this data to understand how these sentiments may impact individual employees as well as the work environment.
This International Women’s Month, American women have something special to cheer about. It looks like we are finally heading towards equality in our workplaces, at least in terms of perception, as our latest Piplsay survey reveals. This, even as the struggle for equal rights and opportunities continue. With women dominating the American workplace in equal measures, Piplsay polled 49,407 working Americans nationwide to find out if and how gender perceptions have changed in our workplaces.
