March is Women’s History Month, a month when we take the time to commemorate and celebrate the often overlooked contributions women have made to United States history.
“Previous research shows that Fortune 500 companies with the highest representation of women on boards financially outperform companies with the lowest representation of women on boards. Moreover, gender-diverse teams have higher sales and profits compared to male-dominated teams, and a recent Gallup study found that gender-diverse business units have higher average revenue than less diverse business units.”
More than a dozen studies have concluded that having more women in the workplace actually makes an organization a better place to work. When women make up a high percentage of a businesses' workforce, statistics predict:
- More job satisfaction
- More organizational dedication
- More meaningful work
- Less burnout
Not only has it been found that women make an organization a better place to work, but when companies employ a measurable number of women, employee engagement and retention is elevated. Women impact the overall culture positively.
It is important to Apogee ITS that we continuously celebrate women's achievements, and the actions we take in our organization illustrate that everyday.
