America’s Competitive Secret

Having women in the workplace, especially in positions of top management, plays no small part in improving the competitive advantages of companies, even at global levels. In some countries, such as Japan, Britain, and certain Member States of the European Union (EU), the relationship between global competitiveness and the underutilization of women is increasingly becoming evident. Because of the growing need to utilize all available human resources effectively and the need to address rapidly changing demographics, leaders have given more attention to the roles of women. This chapter provides a comparative analysis on the measures taken by the identified countries in addressing underutilization and providing support mechanisms. It also looks into how these countries perceive the issue of female underutilization.

Keywords:   Japan, Britain, European Union, comparative analysis, underutilization, support mechanisms, female underutilization
