McKinsey, the consultancy, delivered its latest Women Matter study at the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society in Deauville this week. Part of ongoing research conducted since 2007, this latest report is partly based on a survey of approximately 1,500 business leaders worldwide across all industries, from middle managers to chief executives.
James S. Turley, the chairman and chief executive of Ernst & Young, spoke at a press conference at the Deauville conference to discuss a new initiative called CEO Champions, launched by the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society with Ernst & Young’s support.
A new report from the management consultancy Bain & Company, Flexible Work Models – How to bring sustainability to a 24/7 world, launched at the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society in Deauville, looks into the problem of how to retain men and women in high-pressure jobs. The respondents typically work more than 40 hours per week, travel regularly, and have multiple elements in their job which leads to high pressure. For example, some have an unpredictable work flow and have to be available to clients 24/7.
