Remote working has helped India Inc improve its gender diversity quotient

There was a huge surge in hiring women at the mid-management to senior level, with 43% of companies doing so, as compared to 18% in 2019, according to career platform JobsForHer. The recruitment site surveyed over 300 companies in the country in May 2021 for this report.
