Is Human Resources Making Women Happier?

A Job in Human Resources could give you better Job Satisfaction

For once, it’s not a man’s world. Women are taking control of Human Resources departments across the world and according to Forbes, HR women are happier than most in their job satisfaction. Survey’s and job reviews suggest this is due to the amount of women in the sector, creating a more gender equal outlook for women in the industry.

The Human Resources Institute of New Zealand reported that 84% of those who responded said HR was over-represented by females. One response named HR, ‘the pink ghetto’. But two thirds of those questioned say the feeling of gender equality is a large contributing factor to their job satisfaction. Which is a larger number than the 55% of women who do not believe they’re treated equally to men in their workplace (Forbes).

You can’t argue that Human Resources is a great pathway for women, with many female HR employees holding a managerial position in their respective companies.
