Many high-level positions in companies are filled by men even though the workforce in many developed countries is more than 50 per cent female. Companies should be required to allocate a certain percentage of these positions to women. To what extent do you agree?
In many countries these day, the females account to 50% of the workforce. However, many high-level positions are filled by men. The question is, "Should the companies allocate a certain percenage of these positions to women" I necessarily don't think so. Any postion should be owned by a employee only on the basis of merit. No other factor should be influnetial in deciding the position. The quota based system in the past as well as in the present have depicted many flaws. And for the growth of a company or business such quotas would deprive the very purpose. The companies should concentrate on its overall growth and well being of the employes rather than managing and meeting such kind of percentages or quatos imposed. There are many examples of women commanding and leading high-level postions in companiess like the CEO of Yahoo, is a women. Let women climb up the ladder by themselves.
