Our thanks to Chloe for this nonsense on the CIPD website, an opinion piece from the aptly named Geoff Trickey. It starts:
New research provides evidence that women consistently rate their own performance lower than men do. Employers need to do more to tackle this damaging trend.
It’s amazing how many things employers ‘need’ to do to help women – with the help of self-interested people like Mr Trickey, needless to say. A gem of a sentence, from near the end:
It is clear that more needs to be done to address the gender imbalance at the top of organisations.
It’s not clear to anyone with an IQ above that of a dim-witted wombat, who knows of the evidence of a causal link between increasing female representation on corporate boards, and financial decline – here.
