A new survey has found that women in management roles are more likely to have gone through discrimination at work than men.
The survey, from tech company ‘Workhuman,’ found that more than half of women in middle and front-line management roles have had a manager take credit for their work.
Meanwhile, less than a third of women in senior roles receive an annual bonus of over €1,000 – compared to over half of men.
The report surveyed more than 3,500 people in Ireland, the UK, the US and Canada.
Workhuman spokesperson Niamh Graham said: “The stark findings in this report show that Ireland, among other markets around the world, has a way to go before we can say there is gender equity in every workplace.
“This survey helps us understand the problems but also points to how we can improve workplace cultures.
“Employees want to work at organisations where they feel appreciated, recognised and do meaningful work.
“Embedding a positive culture of recognition, gratitude and allowing people to be themselves at work will help employees thrive and help employers improve relationships, retention of workers, and the organisation’s productivity.”
The report found that 25% of workers have felt discriminated against at some point in their career.
The main forms of discrimination referenced were age (53%), gender identity (30%), race (29%), politics (20%) and sexual orientation (9%).
Half of women in IT said hiring and promotion decision are based on gender or race. Every woman surveyed working in hospitality gave the same opinion.
The report also found that women are less likely to feel they have a good work/life balance than men.
