Women’s Participation in Flexi Workforce at 25%

51% flexi workers belong to the 25-30 age group

With flexible options being replaced post Covid, the participation of women in India’s workforce has dropped by about two per cent. However, their participation in the workforce remains at 25 per cent year-on-year. According to the Flexi Employment Social Impact Report 2023, by the Indian Staffing Federation, the fact remains that more than 75 per cent flexi jobs are held by men.

In 2020, men held 79 per cent of flexible jobs, while women held 21 per cent. In 2021, there was an improvement in women’s participation, with women holding 27 per cent of flexible jobs and men holding 73 per cent. There was no change in 2022, while in 2023, only 25 per cent women are working flexible jobs, while men are working 75 per cent of them.
