Grant Thornton Vietnam today released the results of the Vietnam Hotel Survey 2017. The report this year marks the 14 consecutive year of Grant Thornton conducting the only comprehensive research on high-end hotels and resorts in Vietnam. This year’s survey, in line with last year’s, does not include 3 star hotels because of the level of response and change in hotel mix in this category, and we focus on the upscale hotel industry, covering 4 and 5-Star hotels.
Global survey of Grant Thornton International finds 1 in 4 senior business roles now held by women but pace of change is glacial
On International Women’s Day, a new report based on Grant Thornton International’s annual survey of 5,500 businesses in 36 economies reveals that the proportion of senior business roles held by women in APAC has risen from 23% in 2016 to 25% in 2017. However, the findings show that progress remains slow. The figure for 2017 is an increase of just one percent from 2016, and the proportion has only improved six percent in the 13 years since the research began.
