Study Finds Women Who Work Remotely Are More Likely to Get Promoted
A recent survey conducted by Ultimate Software found that 57% of women working remotely were promoted in the last year, compared to only 35% of women who worked in-office. They were also more likely than their in-office counterparts to report that they felt there was room for growth in their roles.
Remote work has long been championed as a way to help women excel in their careers because of the flexibility it offers. Whether less emphasis on seat-time and more emphasis on results is actually a key driver of these positive results is unclear, but this study certainly supports the notion that remote work is good for women.
Read on for highlights of the study's results, and check out the full report and methodology here.
For Women, Remote Work Offers Advantages:
Women who work in-office were the most likely of all groups to report feeling guilty for taking time off
Women who work in-office are the least likely compared to all groups to believe that HR understands their concerns/needs
Women who work remotely are twice as likely as women who don't to leverage HR to resolve issues
Compared to all groups, women who work in-office were the least likely to report that they felt there was an opportunity for growth in their current role
Men who worked in-office were much more likely to report feeling their current roles offered opportunities for growth than women who worked in-office, while there was hardly any difference between women and men who worked remotely.
