Women In The Workplace

             Today more and more women are getting higher positions in the office. As the years have passed women have also been treated more fairly in the workplace. It is important that this trend continues to grow. Women as managers are very beneficial to firms and corporations. The percentage of women managers is directly related to firm performance. .
             In the article by Susan Cordeiro and James Sites there are many topics discussed. Women managers are important to the performance of organizations. The economic results provide strong initial evidence that gender diversity in managerial ranks makes a positive difference. This diversity reinforces legal and moral necessities. Female careerists still have some obstacles in their paths but this is one that is not so big anymore. This research suggests that firms" performances increase in direct line with the percentage of female managers that they employ. This information also suggests that a diverse work force reduces costs, and increases productivity. It may also have benefits for competitive advantage in international competition. Some of this research extends above the fact that women managers hold promise for improvement in the workplace. It appears that the impact that women have, reaches across industries and several other aspects of performance.
             These results match the results found in the Covenant Investment Management study and also in the U.S. Department of Labor studies. These studies all conclude that the stock-market performance of firms that have women managers are better of than firms that do not. As more women are becoming executives this study will continue. The authors state that further research will provide even more information. .
             The authors go on to conclude the article in saying " Our findings are powerful in that they offer insight into an implicit puzzle that has gone unsolved for some time". Organizations will want to broaden their management teams to include women.
