Women want a change of job more than they have for the past five years, a new study has shown.
Research carried out by the UK Chartered Management Institute (CMI), indicates that resignation rates from female staff between trainee and chief executive level is at 7.8 per cent. This is the highest recorded level of female resignations in five years, management-issues.com reports.
However, women are being promoted faster than men, although this is not reflected in bonus schemes.
The CMI claims that bonuses for female staff averaged 10.2 per cent of their income, whereas men received 13.8 per cent.
"Despite the weight of legislation and the reality that reward should match responsibility, gender bias seems to be getting worse, not better," director of marketing and corporate affairs at the company Jo Causon commented.
A new networking and support website was launched for businesswomen today. The creator of Diva-Biz, entrepreneur Fiona Price, said the aim was to help women feel like they are being understood.
