Men 'more likely to ask for a pay rise and promotion'

Written by Alan Jones

One in three workers will press their boss for a pay rise and promotion this year, with men more likely to ask, a new study shows.

A survey of 700 adults found that women were more likely to be happy to stay in the same job without more pay or extra responsibility.

Jobs site Adzuna said its research also revealed that workers in the South East feel most appreciated, while those who felt least appreciated were in the South West.

Doug Monro, co-founder of Adzuna, said: "Although equal numbers of men and women plan to pick up a pay rise this year, far more men than women also hankered after a promotion from their current role.

"There may be some unrealistic male bravado here, but women also need to raise their expectations, and employers to promote them, if we are to see more equality in senior positions."
