  • New study finds women less likely than men to say they are “thriving” at work

June 2022

According to Mercer’s 2022 Global Talent Trends Study, 44% of companies say that remote working has led women to exit the workforce. Why? Longer hours may be the culprit. Fewer women (40%) than men (52%) say they have reaped the benefit of shorter hours through remote working.

Some high level results from the study include:

  • Respondents who identify as female feel less energized than their male counterparts and are less likely to report that they are ‘thriving’. Perceptions of control are likely to be a factor. Women feel slightly less empowered to take as much time off as they want, as long as they meet their goals (73% vs 63%).
  • Men and women think differently about flexible working. Men are more likely to favor returning to the office compared to women (55% vs 48%), and more men think work gets done in an office (67% vs 53%).
  • Female leaders are more likely to have started recruiting among non-local talent pools for fully remote roles compared to their male counterparts (42% vs 35%) and more likely to have moved to a four-day workweek (34% vs 27%).
