How Employment Levels are Balancing Out

How Employment Levels are Balancing Out

For many years, there have been occupations and careers that are largely occupied by either males or females. These discrepancies have been declining, thanks in part to the greater adoption of technology solutions in businesses. As a result, today’s workforce has shown a greater level of inclusivity than has been demonstrated in the past.

Women in the Workplace

There is not a level of business that women haven’t demonstrated great skills and talents in, from reliable employees, self-starting entrepreneurs, and savvy CEOs. The younger generations are also showing great initiative. Out of all the workforce growth of women between the ages of 25-to-54, 86 percent of them are between 25-and-34 years old. Furthermore, only 12.3 percentage points separate young men from young women who are either employed or seeking employment - the smallest separation ever recorded for this metric.

This could be for any of a number of different reasons. More women in this range have a college degree than men in the same age group, when greater education has been shown to correlate to employment rates. In addition to this, there has been an increase in single, self-supporting mothers - which means that there are more women out there who need to provide for their families.

This has all been augmented by a general hiring increase in fields that have typically been populated by women, like education and health services. Having said that, it isn’t just these industries that are hiring more women.

How Other Industries, Like Construction, Have Adjusted Their Hiring Trends

As of December of 2016, the construction industry had employed 93,900 women. While this only totaled around 9.1 percent of the industry as a whole, there is some evidence that suggests this percentage is on the rise.

For instance, the construction industry has dawdled considerably in adopting technology to assist in day-to-day processes, but there has been an increase in this adoption as of late. More advanced technologies and other solutions are more often being used in this industry’s processes. Due to this, it only stands to reason that women, the better-educated group on average, will be better prepared to take up the jobs that require the use of these technologies.

Like any other industry, the construction industry is only going to continue its shifts - both in its technology and in its staffing practices. We can help you handle the shifts in technology.
