All you hardworking professional ladies, give yourself a pat on the back. We know you work hard on the job each day and theFIT’s new report on workplace culture reveals that not only do women work hard, they work harder than men.
“What we’ve seen in analyzing this initial data is that there are measurable differences in how women and men report and perceive their workplace,” Art Papas, theFit’s founder said to Business Insider. “These differences illuminate the need for honest consideration in finding your fit when you look for a job, not just finding a job where you meet the qualifications.”
According to the report, both men and women tend to limit their work hours to five days a week, but 54 percent of women work 9 hours or more a day, compared to 41 percent of men. In addition, these hardworking women aren’t complaining about their jobs or the long hours they put in. Women have a better perception of their salaries. Only 17 percent of women said their friends would feel bad for them if they knew how much they really made compared to the 26 percent of men who believed their friends would feel bad for them.
While over half of the total workers relayed that they did not receive a bonus last year, more women report earning a bonus (52 percent) compared to 45 percent of men. When these women receive a bonus, they use it to treat themselves. Forty percent of women said they would use their bonus money to spend a week on the vacation or take a trip around the world compared to 30 percent of men. But even on vacation, women work harder. More than half of all employees do some work on vacation, but 68 percent of women are willing to work during their vacation compared to 62 percent of men.
Despite the hardwork, there are some ladies that need to do better when it comes to honesty. The report observes that one in seven women confessed that they lied about being sick to make use of a sick day. Instead, they used the day for a mental health day, hangover recovery, some downtime or interviewing for another job.
