A new report by Globoforce called “Social Impact in the Human Workplace” examined whether the combination of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements and low unemployment are creating power shifts in the workplace. The results show that indeed power is shifting in the workplace.
The survey’s findings reveal that employees are now asking for more out of their employers, especially with regard to pay equity. Men are more likely to agree that they are paid fairly (70%), compared to women (61%), and more women than men reported not receiving any monetary bonuses. As the old command-and-control management style continues to crumble, companies are challenged to match how work gets done today.
