Philippines: Under women ‘on top’ – survey
In this ‘macho’ country of my birth, Women are on top – so says a recent management survey that among the countries of Asia women head a majority of the country’s management posts in both the private and government sector. A leap forard far ahead of China or even Singapore.
One can see that from the President down, many of the top slots in this Asian home Latin machismo – that men are confident enough to realize that women can be on top and enjoy it.

From my first job in journalism; To today I have worked under women bosses and male ones who were borderline – ‘gender prefernence not biological’ boy are boys and girls are girls whatever they like to play with.
But to think that there is more ‘a more caring’ workplace because of a persons gender might be too simplistic a view.
It often does not depend on gender but on the person in the job in charge. A meglomaniac will be what they are, a heartless human being will be what he or she is, a perso’s attidtudes are influencd by many things. Often schools, How they formulated their values, and what they believe or do not believe in.
At a company I worked for a decade or more some of the most heartless lay-off’s and cut throat firing with a total lack of concern for peoples lives – those decisions I have seen in the stable of what was once considered Asia’s most admired media company have been the most strangely heartless in company run by women in many of the top posts now. So thinking a woman ‘on top’ means a more ‘kinder workplace’ is often a misconception.
Over at their competition the same situation exists but they seem to have more ‘heart’ and care for the employee’s. It has shown in the ratings game – people made a paradigm shift to the more ‘caring network’ a few years back – strangely enough the situation is true across the board rooms of the country. Where companies are better caring towards their employee’s those seem to be the better run and more efficient – than those run by bosses of whatever gender but heartless in their decisions.
Perhaps it is a way those seeking to impress stockholders and owners want to seem more westernized in their approach to things and more aggressive. To cover up perhaps for failings in other areas like raising income levels. By cutting off costs to make them seem more efficient.
Overall though most companies run by women in this country do not- thankfully- follow that model – copying failed biz-models of a heartless corporate workplace with little concern for people who really make things work well.
The numbers do speak well – so far the overall level of corpate gender equality in pay and work skill level is equal in many ways. More often than not it is not gender.
But the person running the show and their own personal training and skills that males thing work well – be it in the private or public sectors.
