Gender Workplace Issues
As the new human resources [HR] manager you should now create portions that specifically address gender issues and are targeted at training and raising the sensitivity of all employees to potential gender issues. It should include a section on how the supervisor should or should not handle certain gender-based workplace issues. For example, can the supervisor hand out work assignments that he or she feels are better suited to different genders? Can he or she write a job requirement that only one gender can meet, such as a strength requirement?
address the following:
* Why are there more women in the workforce now than previous decades?
