I just read an interesting article about outsourcing jobs and it talks about how women are 3.5% better than men at quality and delivery of projects, even though we are outnumbered in the tech industry. Pretty interesting stuff! cool.gif

I outsource a fairly large proportion of my work, and I'd never really considered if there was a difference between male and female workers.

The sentiment of the findings are echoed throughout society - traits such as cheating, panic, no attention to detail are more likely to be found in men from my experience, why this is I'm unsure.

I can't argue with the numbers. I have outsourced to both men and women over the years and with me anyway, I did in fact have a little better luck with the women...when I take an average on the performance over the years...with the men compared to the women.

Women seem to pay more attention to detail, although that is quite a generalization... in all it depends on who you work with really.

Hi there, I just want to add, that here in Germany the Online Marketing Companies have a lot female employees. In our company about 57% and I know a lot companies where are more women than man.

I feel that women give quality work but in case of quantity they are very far from the men .

You have to look at it this way. Women have the patience to deal with and raise children. So, naturally they'd be able to apply that same patience to their work.

The women that I've hired for outsourcing jobs were good because they're patient and they keep on working until the job is done. They don't get flustered, they just work through the job. My old boss, a CPA whose wife was also a CPA, told me once that at tax time he'd start to get flustered and panic whereas his wife simply started at the beginning and worked her way through the large stack of tax work they had to get done. Kind of like my outsourcers. smile.gif


Angela, I know your work and now that I know that women are behind it, it makes perfect sense how you are achieving and have a reputation for such quality work.

Fact is, women are very strong at heart, but at the same time their IQ is lower then Men.
This may be a reason for a women to be Impatient.

Yeah, even I hire both men and women outsourcers and I have fairly satisfactory experience with both genders. But now that I read your post, I do agree that women are usually a bit more dedicated and patient than their male counterparts! wink.gif

Yeah. In fact, till today I could not understand why women are called "weaker sex", when it is men who actually deserve that term! wink.gif

Now, this topic certainly makes me feel proud of my gender! laugh.gif

I definitely agree. In my experience, I've had much better luck with women for new positions. It really depends, some women don't take to the job at all while others excel. I find there's a lot less grey area (where most men seem to sit) lol

The people I use for outsourcing are generally good and keep working until a job is complete.

  • Interests:I started my career by writing for a number of print magazines. One day a friend introduced me to the world of online writing and strangely enough, I found myself pretty engrossed in it within the span of just a few weeks! Soon I resigned from my print magazine writing job because I loved the flexibility of writing for the web: I could write whenever I want. More importantly, I didn't have to venture out of home and the pay I received was far better than what they used to pay me offline.<br /><br />Recently I have also started building a number of helpful sites on different topics, such as health, fitness, etc. Health and fitness has always been a subject of my interest, and my aim is to turn this passion into something useful so that others could benefit from my knowledge and experience! <br /><br />I have also worked briefly as a HR executive of a local company<br />

Hi Christine,

That is because they are more patient than men. In a typical corporate office, you would see that more often than not it is the male workers who flare up, while women tend to handle the issues at hand as patiently as possible. It is "all in the genes", as they say! In fact, I have seen fewer women with volatile tempers compared to men.

That's on average of course. This will be some men better than women... admittedly not many lol!




Women seen to pay greater attention to detail if there is not too many of them in the same environment for too long, then they start getting catty with each other, ganging up ect.

Thanks for the article - very interesting. tongue.gif

I agree with the admonition expressed by some to seek out the occasional outsourcing. The previous statements provide great information on how you can use outsourcing.
