Gender roles in international transfers

Actualizado: 9 mar 2022

Of the many changes that have been presented not only in international transfers but at the social and development level, we find that, at present, women have been playing and assuming roles of high corporate responsibility as they are managerial and even presidential positions.

These changes are already reflected in figures because if we take as an example the global mobility industry to which 3.1% of the global population belongs, we find that 49% are women. They present highly competitive and demanded profiles at a global level, so the roles like "The man will be transferred and provided while the woman takes care of everything related to the decoration of the new home, schools, gardens, etc..." They take a 360-degree turn, breaking paradigms and opening up equal opportunities and responsibilities.

It is important to mention that, although we are on a very good path towards equity there are still several aspects in which to work as they are:

  • Wage inequality.

  • Opportunities to access higher education.

  • Job opportunities.

  • Gender differences in legislation.

For the above it is important to take into account that, issues such as women’s empowerment contribute significantly to the growth of companies, For example, companies where three or more women hold senior executive positions are estimated to perform higher in all aspects of organizational effectiveness (McKinsey & Company, 2014).

Likewise, studies have shown that the role of women is imperative in the development of any initiative and if we see it on a large scale, also at the social and economic level because when the number of working women increases, economies grow. According to studies in OECD and some non-member countries, increasing women’s participation in the labour force leads to faster economic growth (Klasen & Lamanna, 2009).

At LARM, we support gender equality and work to ensure that relocation processes meet the expectations of all those involved and have the best experience in their assignment to our country.

LARM, your home away from home!
