Males are still dominant

MALES still have the weight of numbers in the workplace says a survey by Morgan & Banks.

According to the survey, 76.2 per cent of employees report more males than females in their workplaces.

More than half the respondents said gender balance increased productivity in the workplaces. Only 7.1 per cent reported an increase in females decreased productivity.

Morgan & Banks’ Charles Kerr said mid-level managers were more inclined to approve of gender balance while CEOs, directors and general managers were less likely to consider gender in employing staff.

“Information technology firms and government departments regard gender balance as an important issue with large companies of 500 plus staff more likely to balance the scales than small firms,” Mr Kerr said.

“Human resource managers were not inclined to let gender impact on their hiring decisions with the attitude that the best ‘man’ should get the job, whether male or female,” he said.
