After several years of layoffs, many companies are either standing pat with their current workforce sizes or even adding employees here and there.

Recently, we have been spending a lot of time on the question “how many recruiters do we need in our corporate staffing function”?

In February 2010, The New York Times reported that, for the first time in recorded history, women outnumbered men on the nation’s payrolls.
What does this mean for the American workforce?
Unfortunately, women’s ascendance in the workplace is partially related to the recent recession. More men work in industries hit harder by the recession, such as financial services, manufacturing and construction. Women tend to predominate in industries such as education and…Continue
The tides are changing…oh, yes they are. Hang on. Get ready. The shift is happening, again.
First, let’s frame where we’re at. The Millennial Generation (those born between 1980 and 1991) is emerging as the predominate workforce. They are a larger group, collectively, than the Baby Boomers (those born…

I am not sure one exists. I do know that there is a shortage of female C level executives. We recently hosted an IFRS update luncheon for CFOs and sent an invitation to every CFO of a publicly traded company in the Boston area and I only came up with 1 female CFO out of 70.
Is it a “glass ceiling” or something else?
I believe it is something else or maybe a combination of these 2 observations...
