Think PTO versus relationships with coworkers. Then we use women’s personal “goals,” if you will, to match them to companies that score highly for the same factors. It’s a strategic way of ensuring that shifts in a woman’s career and life, like a new job or starting a family, continue to align with what her company has to offer. … [Read more...] about The career-changing power of self-assessment
