Data Reveals 57% of Women Feel Their Salary Is Adequate for Their Position/Level of Responsibility, Compared to 65% of Men
ATLANTA, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Just as data continues to suggest that, on average, women earn less than men for equal work, in a survey released today by Randstad US, only 57 percent of women felt that their salary was adequate for their position/level of responsibility compared to 65 percent of men.
The Q2 2013 Engagement Study conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs on behalf of Randstad, examined the ethos of both men and women on a range of employee issues including perceived value. In addition to being more likely to feel undercompensated, more women than men felt that their current employer does not offer promotions or bonuses to high performing employees as a means of promoting employee engagement (22% of women vs. 27% of men), and only 49 percent of women compared to 54 percent of men thought they were likely to get a raise at the end of the year.
Other notable findings:
Value and Compensation Affect Employees' Attitudes Toward Employers
Women Value Relationships, Corporate Social Responsibility and Flexibility
Company Reputation More Important to Women when Seeking a New Job
The Randstad Engagement Index is comprised of findings from quarterly waves of research targeting employees and annual surveys of employers. The seventh wave of findings was conducted online March 25-April 8, 2013 from a national sample of 3,282 adults aged 18 and older who are currently employed full time from Ipsos' U.S. online panel, including 1,789 men and 1,493 women. Weighting was used to balance demographics and ensure samples reflect the U.S. population of working adults.
Employees and employers were surveyed to compare notable differences in perceptions and attitudes. Multiple waves of research allow for trending and to track changes in perceptions and attitudes over time. Research into employee attitudes and perceptions will be conducted quarterly. Research into employer attitudes and perceptions will be conducted on an annual basis.
