In December 2019, for the second time in history, women in the workforce outnumbered men. The first time the number of women in the paid workforce topped 50 percent was in early 2010 in the aftermath of the Great Recession.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistic’s Employment Situation for December 2019 reported that total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 145,000. Women took 139,000 of those jobs, which brought their share of the workforce to slightly 50.04 percent of jobs.
“The lack of talent has also pushed employers to be more creative and flexible in who they hire,” says Larry Rubin, senior partner with Gregory Sparzo at Talent Partners, an executive search and human capital consulting company. “When talent is scarce, employers are more likely to hire workers from a wide variety of backgrounds.”
