The importance of women in employment is well recognised by western countries where half of the workforce consists of women. But how many of them really climb the corporate ladder to reach the top management post?. Less than 3 percent is the answer. Although companies like ABB, BP and General Electric have taken efforts in the right direction to help women employees reach top post, yet there seem to be conflict of opinion in majority of the companies in this regard. Moreover shortage of skilled and qualified men have turned the tables in favour of women employees. Brushing aside the gender bias,companies have come to realise that women also can contibute in a big way as management executives. IBM which had undergone trying times during 1990s came to believe that its male executives with identical thoughts were partly responsible for the trouble. It then decided and went on to recruit women in all positions which has worked out well. Companies believe that women tend to quit their jobs, when they are vested with more powers, to have children or take care of their families. The best solutions to this problem is to make re-entry easy and available for the women employees who have left their jobs for some purpose. Flexible timings to enable them to complete their work at home or to leave early to pick up their children from schools has to be introduced which might reduce unnecessary resignations. Companies can also communicate with them to keep them informed about the latest technologies and help them to up-date their knowledge so that their re-entry could be made easier. Men should realise the importance of women in top management level and have to promote and make way for them to climb the corporate ladder.
