Whilst HR may well have felt overwhelmed with the changes to the workplace as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, key initiatives under its remit such as D&I still require investment. And whilst much has changed within the workforce as a result of the pandemic, recent research has found that women are still massively under-represented within top-ranking positions.
For example, in the UK, women hold just 30% of all senior leadership roles, with just 23% holding executive titles and 29% holding senior manager titles. What’s more, women hold just four per cent of all CEO roles in S&P 500 FIRMS, according to Nichols research.
