Women frustrated at work

No wonder that more and more people are attracted to portfolio careers. The latest research report from Accenture shows that almost half of female business professionals around the world—and a similar number of their male counterparts—believe they are insufficiently challenged, despite being confident of their skills and capabilities.

The survey of 3,600 professionals from medium to large organizations in 18 countries across Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa found that 46 percent of women and 49 percent of men said they are not being challenged significantly in their current roles, yet more than three-quarters (76 percent) of all respondents are confident of their skills and capabilities. These skills include the ability to manage their workload and deadlines, to delegate tasks and to negotiate (reported by 70 percent, 68 percent and 65 percent of respondents, respectively).

No wonder that people are realising more and more that it is very difficult to satisfy all of one’s work needs in one job.
