Many employees do not think their bosses make the most of their talents at work, a study has found.
According to research from Accenture, 49 per cent of men and 46 per cent of women do not think they are challenged enough in their job role.
This is despite 76 per cent of them thinking they are capable enough and have the skill set to achieve more, Management Today reports.
Released to celebrate International Women's Day, the report also found that women were more likely to request new challenges than men and 60 per cent described their career as successful or very successful.
Many women also recognised that there were many benefits to having a mentor in the workplace.
In related news, Kate Craig-Wood, managing director of Memset, recently told those attending the Intellect Annual Regent Conference 2009 that women are needed in the workplace as it is more productive when males and females are working alongside each other.
