Construction (Female) 2020

The construction benchmark includes organizations that are involved in construction directly as well as via the construction supply chain with materials. These organizations tend to undertake contracting work on large commercial projects. Though there is also representation with some firms engaging in residential projects additionally. This benchmark only includes Women employees. We use woman and man because most of our customers are using binary options.

    Benchmark status

We consider this an emerging benchmark: it has enough data available for us to use bootstrapping to create a representative sample. As the sample grows in size, some scores may slightly change. Our research has shown that our bootstrapped scores are consistent with our standard benchmarks. Read more about the methodology.
