Private limited companies with only men on their boards make up 72 per cent of the companies. Eight out of ten boards with one or two representatives consist of men only. The more representatives there are on a board, the higher the share of enterprises that have both men and women on their boards.
Few female general managers
There has also been no change in the proportion of male and female general managers in limited companies. In private limited companies, 15 per cent of general managers are women, while the corresponding figure for public limited companies is 6 per cent. From 2004 to 2014, the share of female managers in private limited companies rose by 2.4 percentage points. In public limited companies, this share is now 1.8 percentage points higher than in 2004.
The highest share of female general managers in private limited companies is in other service activities, as well as human health and social work activities, with 64 and 40 per cent respectively. In construction, only 4 per cent of managers are women. In public limited companies, some industries have no female general managers, such as information and communication. The highest share of female general managers is in transport and storage, with 17 per cent.
