Employment Data Shows Improved Pay Equity For Young Women


December 31, 2010 - APICS the Association for Operations Management and the Cameron School of Business at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington announced the third quarter 2010 installment of the quarterly Operations Management Employment Outlook report. The survey shows less disparity between genders in professional salaries for younger workers. 

Report data show the difference in compensation between genders tends to narrow in the under 35 age group. According to the survey, employees under 35 years of age show compensation disparities that are less than the overall average of 16.3 percent. In the 31 to 35 age range, female salaries are edging closer to male salaries. There is an approximate 2 percent difference in this age group.  

"We are encouraged by the narrowed salary gap between younger men and women. More and more, education can be the great equalizer for professional salaries," said APICS chief executive officer Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE. "APICS works to provide relevant, applicable education to individuals to help them ensure they are sought after, hired, and paid more."  


In addition, report data reveal that 54 percent of those with hiring authority anticipate hiring within the next 12 months. This has remained relatively constant throughout 2010. In the second quarter of 2011, 57 percent individuals with hiring authority anticipate hiring.

"Consistent anticipated hiring is a good sign for job seekers in the operations and supply chain management professions," said Drew Rosen, professor of operations management at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington and a member of the research team. "The constant level of expected hiring sustained over time suggests that hiring will not drop off in the near future." 

The entire report is available to APICS members and members of the media at Statistics are available based on gender, age, bonus, certification status, and geographic location. A condensed public version also is available.  

The Association for Operations Management is the global leader and premier source of the body of knowledge in operations management, including production, inventory, supply chain, and materials management, as well as purchasing and logistics.
