In 2018, the men’s score was 48 percent and women’s 46 percent, but in 2020 the men’s score dropped to 45.91 percent and the women’s score went up to 46.8 percent. The score of women reached 47 percent in 2019.
Report further said “companies in their intentions to recruit people, it was found that they still intend to recruit a larger number of men than women. In 2020, the ratio of men and women to ‘hiring intents’ was 71:29. Probably that’s why 64 percent of the total population of the working people are men and only 36 percent women.
