Open Discussion – Why are women more satisfied than men at work?

According to the iHR Australia APEV survey, women are clearly more satisfied with their work life than men?   Furthermore, Generation Y is far less satisfied than baby boomers?  Why do you believe this is so and what should organisations be doing to increase levels of satisfaction?


  1. I believe (generally speaking) women are better at forming and managing relationships at work, and happier as a result.

    Women also have greater access to flexible working arrangements with regards to maternity leave in many organisations. This “career break” allows many women to refresh and re-enter the workforce with new perspective and ideas.
