Jobs in Jacksonville for women

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

It’s very important to create jobs in Jacksonville for women, and jobs for women in every industry, city, town, and company across the globe.

ManpowerGroup advises companies to embrace greater flexibility in order to empower women leaders.

ManpowerGroup’s 2012 Talent Shortage Survey found that, globally, management and executive roles are among the most difficult to fill. Despite this, Grant Thornton’s 2012 International Business Report revealed that barely one in five senior management positions globally is held by women. In her opening plenary remarks at the WEF Annual Meeting, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde urged the business world to focus on inclusive growth. She said: “The evidence is clear; when women do better, economies do better. Seventy percent of all consumption decisions in the world are made by women.”

As world economic growth continues to shift considerably South and East and demographic shifts accelerate, emerging markets in particular need to devote more resources to developing women for leadership roles. For example, the 2012 International Business Report revealed that India has among the fewest women in senior management positions (14%), yet ManpowerGroup’s Talent Shortage Survey found that nearly half of Indian businesses are impacted by talent shortages.

ManpowerGroup’s new insights paper, “Leading in the Human Age,” details steps businesses can take in order to formulate strategies for responding to unpredictable situations in this era of “certain uncertainty”. In an age where talentism has become the dominant economic system, a company’s strategies, processes and solutions must start with its people.
