I read a good article with great statistics today about why women are so successful in business. The article is “Why are women so good in business? The extraordinary success of women-owned companies” By Margaret Heffernan. Click here to view the article: http://www.women-omics.com/148-0-the-best-companies-are-run-by-women.html.
Here is a brief excerpt from the article:
Women-owned businesses in the United States grow at 11% compared to 6% in other companies and have revenue growth of 32% compared to 24%
Companies owned by women of colour grow at twice the rate of all women-owned businesses
Women-owned companies make leanness a part of their corporate DNA
They want to make a difference as well as make money
They are more likely to offer flexible working hours
They are more likely to be involved in community activity
They hire a diverse group of people and offer good health and retirement plans
