It was a strange sight – an all-male panel of CEOs talking about family and equality at the workplace.

Six months after her baby was born, Amanda Sanchez still couldn’t imagine returning full-time to her job in marketing at Adobe’s Lehi, Utah, offices. Her family’s finances depended on it—but 40 hours a week away from her baby? “You become so attached, it’s so hard to think of being away for an hour at a time,” she said. She hoped to return to work with a more flexible schedule, working from home at least a few days a week, but she hadn’t discussed it with her manager before going on leave. She figured she’d push for it once she got back. “If it wasn’t going to be offered, I’d look elsewhere for it, because it….

As someone born in the 1990s, now is the time for me to find the best place for my career.
Finding one is a challenge. Even though there lots of places to apply to, millennials have unique characteristics when it comes to workplace. These things are affected by information that we get from social media, television and other sources of information.
Another challenge we faced is stereotyping about millennials. People say we are lazy, place too high standards about work and are constant job hoppers.

In the past few years, Indonesia has experienced an average of 5 percent annual gross domestic product (GDP) growth. This could be partly attributed to the increasing population of women in the workforce—almost five times as more in the past three years alone.
Yet, Indonesia was ranked only 88th in the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2016. At the corporate level, creating the conditions to increase participation of women in the workforce remains challenging and complex.
Where should employers begin?
Diversity and inclusion requires deliberate effort. In Indonesia, many organizations have identified diversity management as a top priority and set minimum quotas for hiring women in their organizations, together with strategies to meet these quotas.
In the recent Aon Best Employers Indonesia study, it was discovered that engagement levels among women have increased 1.8 percent year on year from 2013 to 2016—despite the decrease across Indonesia. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and the drivers for engagement are dynamic to each organization, the study showed that there are common traits among organizations where the engagement levels for ….
