THE WORLD’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE RESEARCH ON WOMEN IN THE WORK PLACE.
When Women Thrive is a call to organizations and leaders to think and act differently to advance gender diversity. It is a business imperative with deep and profound social implications – an imperative that every business leader needs to personally drive. Now is the time for us to take action.
Although considerable research that proves the link between diversity and corporate growth already exists, When Women Thrive leverages Mercer’s extensive experience with thousands of companies around the world to help understand the actual drivers of success. This innovative approach connects it directly to what’s working and what’s not.
Global: Our study covers 583 organizations in 42 countries, representing 3.2 million employees.
Holistic: Our research is more than a snapshot of where organizations stand today. Our focus includes linking diversity and inclusion (D&I) programs and policies to tangible outcomes in order to uncover which practices are helping and which are hurting the progress toward gender equity.
Forward-looking: Using the data collected from participating organizations, we are able to forecast how workforces are positioned for change over the next 10 years.
Ongoing, real time: Through our open survey, we will add to our growing database and regularly analyze the latest inputs to provide critical insights, keeping us — and business leaders — on the cutting edge.
