Women Are Better Workers- Study
Women Are Better Workers- Study

They are the biggest coffee consumers, they stand by the fax machine more than everybody and they never run out of things to talk about. We can spend whole day talking about things “these people” do at work one would think they can’t get anything done at work but a recent study says they are better employees.

Forget the stereotype because the research says women are more likely to stay in their desks and do their work compare to their male counter parts.

Women were also found to work for longer and were less likely to wander off.

Men by contrast got easily distracted, suggesting they did not have their minds on the job.

The study on behalf of technology firm 3M observed 274 workers – 53 percent female and 47 percent male – across US offices in a range of industries.

During a ten-minute trial, women worked for 4.9 minutes versus men’s 4.3 minutes.

When given the opportunity to walk off, 38 percent of women did so – compared with 52 percent of men.

Interestingly, the men were also found to work less when women were around.

If the researcher and subject were female, the average time was four minutes. If the researcher and subject were both male, it was 3.6. But when the researcher was female and the subject male, the time was 2.8 minutes.

Relationships writer Jean Hannah Edelstein said: “Perhaps women work harder because we suffer more from ‘imposter syndrome’; society bombards us with messages that we’re not as valuable as our male colleagues, so perhaps we feel we have to be more diligent in order to prove ourselves.

“Some men may feel a sense of entitlement to professional success, as a result of living in a society where men are more valued than women in some workplaces.”
