  • Providing emotional support to employees: 19% of men compared with 31% of women
  • Considering the well-being of employees: 54% of men compared with 61% of women
  • Helping employees navigate work-life challenges: 24% of men compared with 29% of women
  • Intervening to prevent or deal with employee burnout: 16% of men compared with 21% of women
  • Leading and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion efforts: 7% of men compared with 11% of women
