Workplace Differences Among Men and Women
A snapshot by the Partnership for Public Service and Deloitte
Are there differences in how men and women experience the workplace? As part of our Best Places to Work in the Federal Government® analysis, based on the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) 2010 employee survey, the Partnership for Public Service and Deloitte set out to answer that question.
The analysis revealed that women are slightly less satisfied than men in nine out of 10 workplace categories, and slightly more satisfied in only one category (skills/mission match). In many instances, the gaps are minimal, indicating that the government, as a whole, has done a good job of integrating women into its workforce. However, the leadership climate for women appears to be another matter. The analysis revealed areas of concern in two subcategories of effective leadership: empowerment and fairness.
