Just in time for International Women’s Day on 8 March, PwC Russia and the Association of Managers are pleased to present the results of their annual Career Opportunities for Women in Business survey.

The key findings are:

  • The past year has seen significant growth in the proportion of women holding key posts such as CEO and CFO.
  • Women are generally more loyal to their employers, less inclined to change their place of employment, more industrious and willing to work for lower pay.
  • Only 10% of companies surveyed have career development programmes or strategies in place for the women they employ.
  • More companies are offering women one-off payments on their return from maternity leave.
  • The proportion of women who stay out of the workforce for more than two years after having a child has fallen by 8%.
  • Almost half those surveyed said they view work schedules for employees with young children as the most pressing issue.
