The New Workforce Gender Equity Factors for HR to Watch

Closing the gender wage gap is a key priority for many organizations—for reasons that go far beyond fairness. Research shows that gender diverse companies are more likely to outperform their less diverse peers, and a lack of a gender diverse workforce can also impact employer brand.
