More women satisfied with their current jobs than men

New global research from Accenture, titled “The Path Forward,” has found that a greater number of women (40 percent) are satisfied with their current job and are not looking for new job opportunities as compared to men (28 percent). The research further reveals that 80 percent of the respondents in India stayed at their jobs longer than they may have otherwise because of a flexible work arrangement. Family responsibility is the most commonly cited reason to work a flexible work schedule. “Today, greater number of women are retreating from the nine-to-five and moving towards career customization to overcome the challenges of managing careers and home life. This is reflected in the findings of “The Path Forward”, a recent study conducted by Accenture, which reveal that more women (66 percent) in India avail flexi work arrangements as compared to men (52 percent)” said Rekha M. Menon, Executive Director - Geographic Services for Accenture in India and ASEAN.

The research explores career satisfaction levels, aspirations and factors for career advancement. It examines the factors that may hold professionals back from progressing in their careers and seeks to better understand the support and programs companies provide that attract, develop and retain high-performing employees.
