Swedish Personnel Managers Don’t Favour Mothers

Published onsdag 27 augusti 2008 kl 11.54

Swedish mothers with young families are at a disadvantage when it comes to getting work.

A recent report by Swedish Confederation for Professional Employees shows that every tenth Swedish personnel manager rejects candidates who are mothers of young children.

According to the report, Swedish employers’ ideal employee is a well educated, childless young man. So young mothers not only often have lower salaries than their male peers, they are already at a disadvantage during the recruitment process.

Nevertheless, the new report shows that attitudes have improved since 2005. Back then, 25 percent of personnel managers were negative towards hiring young mothers. Today it is 10 percent.

A total of 1800 personnel managers where questioned from both the private and public sector.
