Forsyth County v. National Surveys



The Community Survey of Women in the Workplace (CSWW) was an initiative of REACH Women’s Network and was open from September–December of 2022. Learn about the survey, its methodology, and the demographics of respondents.


Respondents to the Community Survey of Women in the Workplace were asked to report their level of satisfaction with a number of job and workplace-related factors. Topically relevant responses from women participating in the 2023 national survey by The Conference Board have been included below for comparison.

 

Where Women are Most Satisfied

  • Commute to / from work (83%) — This is notably higher than the national average of 66% of women reporting satisfaction with their commute.

  • Flexibility in job with respect to time (83%) — This is much higher than the national average of 51% of women reporting satisfaction with their employer’s flex-time plan.

  • Paid time off of work (80%)

  • Relationship with their immediate supervisor (79%) — In comparison, 62% of women nationally reported satisfaction with their supervisor.

  • Organization for which they work (overall) (77%)

  • Current role within the organization (74%)

 

Women Least Satisfied with Compensation

Overall, only half of respondents were satisfied with their base salary/ hourly wage. BIPOC women were notably less satisfied (38%) than White women (56%), and women earning less than $50,000 were less satisfied (33%) than women earning $50,000+ (59%). In comparison, The Conference Board reported that 56% of women responding to their 2023 national survey were satisfied with their wages.
