Despite recent emphasis on creating gender-balanced work environments, studies show that men and women still experience the workplace very differently. Male-centric programs and ideologies continue to control the majority of workplace culture. As women increasingly stand up for job equality, employers are having to make fast changes in order to retain talent.
RSR’s Managing Partner, Lauren Bello, spoke with Inc. about some leading cultural and organizational shifts that will help keep female employees around.
“There needs to be an unapologetic adoption of the mindsets that drive these changes,” said Lauren Bello, partner and managing director of Ready Set Rocket. “Bottom line, if an employee participates in a policy or benefit, you need to be sure they won’t be penalized for it.”
To enable this change, start at the top. If employees see their executives leading by example, attitudes will begin to change.
