Women @ Work 2024: India market outlook

Now in its fourth year, Deloitte’s Women @ Work report examines some of the critical workplace and societal factors that have a profound impact on women’s careers. the report seeks to understand the lived experiences of women at work—and the ways in which aspects of their lives outside work can impact these experiences. Past reports were dominated by the negative impacts of the pandemic and the resulting challenges as we emerged from it. This year’s report continues to explore these issues, while also delving deeper into women’s experiences with their health, safety, rights, and household responsibilities.

The study represents the views of 5,000 women from organisations across 10 countries spanning women working in financial services; energy, resources, and industrials; government and public services; business services; life sciences and health care; consumer; and technology, media, and telecommunications.

“Much has been said about the business case for inclusive practices. These findings corroborate that point of view with hard facts. If an organisation truly wants to grow, all its people need to be able to put their best foot forward. When your policies targeted at growing the careers of women professionals translate into action, you will be much better placed to grow, because you’re getting the best perspectives and a driven, gender-diverse workforce. Moreover, and importantly, you’re nurturing a nourishing and safe workplace,” says Saraswathi Kasturirangan, Chief Happiness Officer, Deloitte India.
