I’m not sure if it is too early yet to be thinking of the post-pandemic world, the so-called “new normal” or whatever phrase gets coined to describe the changed environment and workplaces that we, collectively, are going to concurrently inherit and create.

What Percentage of the Workforce is Female in 2020?

Women are making big strides in the workforce in 2020, yet they face big challenges going forward.  A U.S. Labor Department’s report in December showed that women make up the majority of the workforce at 50.04%.  Yet, even with the mass number of women in the workforce, the percentage of executive-level roles held by women remains relatively low. Only 6% of the Fortune 500 have women as CEOs and only 2% or 60 of the Russell 3000 companies (the 3,000 largest companies domiciled in the U.S. and U.S. territories) have a board made up of at least 50% women according to Equilar.

Nobody would argue that those percentages aren’t low, but they are up from what it was just a few years ago. Change, although slow, is happening as reflected in the increase seen for the past nine consecutive quarters in the Equilar Gender Diversity Index (GDI), a quarterly update of female directors in the Russell 3000. Additionally, according to the Women in Workplace 2019 report by McKinsey & Company and Lean In, more companies have higher numbers of female C-level executives than in previous years.

Though the numbers are improving, the question remains, how do we help our organizations create a culture of inclusion and diversity.

Using HR Tech to Meet the Challenges of COVID-19

As workforces around the world adjust to the changes being ushered in by the coronavirus pandemic, technology will likely be more important than ever.

At IBM, the company’s investments in online learning and collaboration tools are paying off, says CHRO Diane Gherson. Employees are using the tools to aid other employees in addition to getting their own work done. 

“Every minute, I’ve been getting messages about employees assisting each other on these platforms,” says Gherson, HRE’s 2018 HR Executive of the Year. IBMers have created pages of resources on topics ranging from technical advice to taking care of toddlers while working. “It’s been incredible, this rallying around. It’s led to a community that people can go to for help when they have specific questions.”

Even when the bulk of IBM’s workforce returns to the office (as at many organizations, a number of IBMers have continued their on-site work), health and safety will be paramount, says Gherson.

One of the resources I like to consult as I plan for themes, topics and speakers for the annual HR Technology Conference is Human Resource Executive®‘s annual “What Keeps HR Up at Night?” survey. The research sheds light on what HR leaders are thinking about, how they are spending their time, and importantly, what subjects, functions, processes and programs are proving challenging to them as they strive to execute their people strategies...

Sustaining engagement with newly remote workers

Ordinarily, telling employees they must now work from home would be greeted with joy by most. Dispensing with the daily commute and instead opening up a laptop in their favorite chair with perhaps a pet snuggled next to them might feel like a godsend.
