Women make up half of the population and predominate among university graduates. This is a huge potential. Unfortunately, largely untapped. More and more companies are recognizing this problem and are launching programs addressed to women, according to the Well.hr report 'The Power of Women'. 

According to PwC's Women in Work Index 2022, if Poland managed to increase female labor force participation to the level recorded by Sweden (81 percent), our GDP would be enriched by $83 million annually. Increasing women's labor force participation is a remedy for demographic change and skills shortages. Research also shows the positive impact of the presence of women on boards of directors on the performance of companies – their profits, share price, or innovation. 

"Our analysis of company practices shows that there are more and more organizations that want to make greater use of women's potential. More companies are including in their goals increasing the share of women at different levels of the hierarchy or closing the wage gap; to achieve these goals, they are implementing changes in the recruitment process; introducing special development programs addressed to women, creating women's employee networks and modifying remuneration systems,"  Joanna Kotzian, co-founder of Well.hr and one of the authors of the report, said.
