During the confinement of November, 70% of assets have teleworked. Among them, women were 1.3 times more likely than men to report a situation of anxiety. 70% of men are confident in their professional future compared to 60% of women.

The study was carried out on 1001 women and 1001 men, all employed in the private sector. For the Institute, “this can be partly explained by the fact that women were less successful in terms of professional interactions during the crisis”.

In addition, they are 1.3 times less likely to have an isolated space to telework, and they are 1.5 times more likely to be interrupted.

The Boston Consulting Group research office therefore calls on companies to put in place individual and collective support measures to prevent women dropping out of work.

Finally, the study insists on “the upheaval in working methods [qui] leads to the emergence of new psychosocial risks ”, which must be taken into account.
