Experts of the Rabota.ru job search service conducted a study and found out who, in the opinion of Russians, finds it more difficult to build a career, men or women. According to the survey results, more than half of Russia’s residents (53 per cent) noted that gender does not affect career development in any way.
Nevertheless, 36 per cent of respondents indicated that it is easier for men to build a career, and 11 per cent of respondents indicated the same in relation to women. Almost half of women (49 per cent) noted that career development is easier for men. Among the male respondents, 23 per cent are sure of this. However, men 6 times more often noted that it is easier for women to build a career (19 per cent of the answers versus 3 per cent of the answers of women).
In addition, the results of the study showed that the majority of respondents (55 per cent) have male bosses, and 33 per cent of respondents work under the leadership of women. In particular, men were much more likely to say that they work with a male boss (66 per cent versus 45 per cent among women). Also, women are more likely to work under the leadership of women (47 per cent versus 19 per cent among men).
