Flexible Working Boosts Female C-Suite Aspirations, Study Shows

Women working in companies that offer flex-time benefits were more likely to pursue C-suite roles than their counterparts without flexible working arrangements, a new Catalyst study finds.

The British website Economia cites a new Catalyst study, which concluded that “women working in companies that [don't] currently offer flex-time were less likely to aspire to C-suite roles than those working in companies which did.” Researchers polled 725 “high-potential” employees around the globe and found that 81 percent currently work at firms that offered some sort of flexible working arrangement (FWA). In companies with FWAs, 83 percent of females surveyed said they aspire to the C-suite level in the future in their career versus only 54 percent in companies without FWA access.
