We take pleasure in submitting for your consideration a report on ‘The problems faced by professional working ladies in Pakistan'. This report is divided into four parts: Introduction, Literature Review, Methodology and Conclusions and Results. The report aims to determine the general opinion of the professional working women about the problems they face at work. The report was authorized by you in August 2011. We have completed the report on schedule and met all our proposed objectives.
The professional working ladies at our working places served as a sample for our study and questionnaires were used as a research tool. The report provides different reasons the working professional ladies in Pakistan face while they are at work and what are the circumstances which are serving as a barrier in their way of success. We evaluated the results based on our survey and used them to test the hypotheses that we came up with.
Majority of the working ladies agreed that the social , cultural and religious orthodox thoughts are the major hurdles in their working lives which are the barriers in their success.
We would like to express our gratitude to our professional working colleagues for bearing with our questions and so patiently filling out our questionnaires. We commend this report to you.
The purpose of the research study was to evaluate and identify the problems of working women: the problems faced while they work for an organization and manage between the work place and family life. For survey a questionnaire was prepared and feedback from 40 working women from different organizations/industry was collected and analyzed.
It is observed and inferred from the results that the working women are equally potential employees as of men but are facing immense pressure which include society, culture, work place and family pressures. In spite of her endeavors towards the work place and her contribution to the family and growth of society or economy her development as an employee is precluded at most.
There are a various number of factors contributing to the problems of working women and the major reported issues and factors are discussed in this report. The feedback received through questionnaire authenticate that the existence of the mentioned problems are the upshot of gender biasness at work places. Our culture and mind set nourishes these problems and throttles the potential and capabilities of working women.
Fulfilling the necessities of working women flourishes her as an employee and the organization too. Unbiased working environment creates healthy and positive energy within the employees and increases the employee competencies.
