The Gender Gap

Why Men and Women Experience Work Differently

We have come a long way towards achieving gender diversity in the workplace. In 1970, women comprised 38% of the U.S. workforce. As of 2010, they made up 47%—and that number is growing. Yet despite all of this progress, women and men are still confronted by a substantial cultural divide; the way they experience work.

In this white paper, we explore why men and women experience work differently. Additionally, we highlight the key differences in engagement drivers between men and women, possible reasons for those differences, and offer strategies organizations can use to eliminate them. By understanding and responding to these differences, companies can take a greater step towards not only enabling gender diversity, but maximizing the potential of all of their employees.
