What women want in the workforce

Posted by Paula Turnquist

Today, a little over half of the American workforce is comprised by women, and the percentage is projected to grow in the coming years. As the American workforce continues to evolve, the benefits offered to retain and attract this population should as well. Below are a few benefits managers can suggest.

Flexibility. Yes, everyone wants flexibility. For women, especially working mothers, flexibility gives them the ability to choose to work from home on days their child is sick. Flexibility allows women who are having a difficult health issue to take off and make up missed hours later in the week. This benefit is rated at the top of both men and women’s lists and will help employee retention.

Tuition Assistance. More women are going to college and earning four-year degrees than men. College is expensive. Recent surveys show potential employees are more likely to work for a lower paying job as long as it provides better benefits. If this benefit were to be provided for women, employers might worry less about hiring competitors.

Better Healthcare. Overwhelmingly, among men and women, employees want better health benefits. Outside of regular annual physicals, women also have to go through Pap tests, mammograms, and reproductive cancer screenings. Providing the best care through the best plan should be employers’ No. 1 priority.

Does it look like you’ll need a better health plan? KelseyCare has it for you, and your future workforce, as well.
