Women complete more work than men, report says

October 03, 2018 / Valerie Bolden-Barrett

Not only do women complete more work on average, according to a new Hive report, but they are assigned 55% of all work, compared to 45% assigned to men. Based on a sampling of 3,000 men and women, The State of the Workplace Gender Report examined how women and men act and communicate at work. The report also said that women send 20% more chat messages, but complete 10% more work a stat that Hive said shows that chatting at work doesn't necessarily make someone less productive. Additionally, using passive language isn't a gender issue, it concluded: Men say "thanks" more often, and women use more emojis and exclamation points, but both say "sorry," "please," and "I think" almost equally. The question of gender’s impact in the workplace is a complex one, Hive said, but it said it hopes the report's insights will help stakeholders understand what underpins some of today's most pressing issues.
