Belgium — Three women out of four suffer from a 'glass ceiling'

12 May 2010

New research carried out by research firm InSites Consulting on behalf of Tempo Team (previously Vedior, Randstad owned) among 200 employers and 600 workers reveals that there is no such thing as professional equality between men and women in the labour market.

40% of women said that they do not get the same pay as their male counterparts even though they do the same work. Interestingly, only 23% of men share this point of view.

73% of women feel that they don't have the same career opportunities as men. Again, only 27% of men believe that this is the case.

Pregnancy also still puts women in a weak position when it comes to their careers. 47% of women resent the negative influence of a pregnancy on their professional careers.

73% of employers, however, believe that the so-called 'glass ceiling', which women feel they hit in their professional careers, is a myth. 78% of employers believe that women receive the same pay for the same job as men. 48% of employers believe that a pregnancy has no impact whatsoever on a woman's career.
