Women & the Workplace
Inforum and Sphere Trending have released “Women & the Workplace,” a new installment of an ongoing research partnership to examine trends affecting women in the second decade of the 21st century.
- Women are survivors: Women are the positive demographic coming out of this most recent recession. They continue to make headway in education, earning power and new business formation. “Personal businesses,” those with no employees, are growing in number.
- Homes are not just for living in anymore: Homes is evolving to accommodate new ways of working. Meanwhile, office spaces are shrinking as more people work remotely from home or other places.
- Mobile devices are becoming extensions of us: Surveys show that mobile phones and similar devices are often cited as the most important technology in the lives of Americans. And social media is an increasingly important way to keep in touch.
- Gen X is stressed out: Gen Xers are moving up in the corporate hierarchy. But as they do that, many are feeling over-worked and feeling the stress of balancing their home and work lives.
