EADA Business School and ICSA regret that managerial positions are "designed for face-to-face"
BARCELONA, 18 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Women managers in Spain represent 16.8% of the total and earn 13.1% less on average than their male counterparts, according to the study 'Salary gap and presence of women in management positions 2022' carried out by Eada Business School and ICSA Group.
This was explained at a press conference this Wednesday by the industrial engineer and partner-director of ICSA Grupo's consulting area, Indry Canchila, and the professor and researcher at EADA Business School Aline Masuda.
Specifically, female managers earn an average of 77,928 euros gross per year, while managers earn an average of 88,129 euros gross per year.
Canchila has lamented that positions at the managerial level are "very masculinized" and that it is a trend that has not been broken, and has pointed out that it is due to the lack of reconciliation between professional and personal life in managerial positions.
By managerial positions, women hold a higher percentage of positions in the Human Resources department (32.9% of the total) and Administration and Finance (19.5%), while in General Management they are 8.8%; in Commercial Management, 7.6%, and in Production Management, 5.9%.
Canchila has pointed out that the positions with less female presence are "designed for face-to-face work and require availability 24 hours a day, seven days a week".
She explained that the opportunity for digitization offered by the pandemic has not been taken advantage of and that they are "not very adaptable, obsolete, not very flexible and do not allow the integration of women between personal and professional life."
Masuda has said that managerial positions continue to be incompatible with conciliation and has warned that teleworking "is not a panacea" and that a long-term cultural change is necessary.
