Expanding Work-Life Perspectives: Talent Management in Asia
- Both women and men in Asia reported high levels of job and career focus and stated that they valued having a good fit between their work and personal lives.
- Work-life related challenges, such as long hours, stress, and the inability to attend to other life priorities, affected both women’s and men’s career decisions but were especially likely to hurt women’s long-term career aspirations and goals more so than men’s.
- There is a “mismatch” between women’s and men’s work-life flexibility needs and the level of flexibility that their companies provide, suggesting that organizations in these regions could be doing more to support employees’ ability to manage work and personal demands.
