Female graduates resign HR posts
Thursday, 06 September 2007
An increasing number of skilled female graduates and non-graduate managers are resigning from their human resources positions, new figures have shown.
A survey conducted by the Chartered Management Institute and Remuneration Economics suggests that even though more and more women are being promoted, pay rises have actually stalled.
This, it could be argued, has attributed for the rise in female resignation, which has upped by 4.7 percent last year to 5.5 percent. The male rate currently stands at 4.7 per cent.
Commenting on the figures, Jo Causon, at the Chartered Management Institute, said: "It is clear that the pull of promotion is not being matched by parity in pay.
"Despite the weight of legislation and the reality that reward should match responsibility, gender bias seems to be getting worse, not better."
According to the figures, female managers earn an average of £45,108, compared to the male equivalent of £55,402 - an 18 per cent difference.
