Women professionals are in short supply, as they drop out at various levels of education in India, says a new report. This problem is compounded by the fact that even after higher studies, a large number of women do not join the organised workforce, says ICICI Bank's report titled Women in Leadership'.
Companies should hire women right from the initial stages, so that there are enough women who can move up the ladder to the middle and senior management positions, says Chanda Kochhar, managing director and chief executive of ICICI Bank. "It is important to clearly convey that they are purely merit-oriented and women are rewarded on the basis of their performance."
