Most young women believe they will achieve a balance between a rewarding career and a fulfilling personal life, despite the economic upheaval and a legacy of corporate culture that favors men, a survey shows.

The online survey of full-time4 working women between the ages of 22 and 35 years old revealed that they wanted a balance between their personal and professional lives and a job where they could make a difference.

Medical benefits were a crucial part of how they defined professional success, according to the survey commissioned by global management consulting and outsourcing外购,外包 firm Accenture, some 63 percent cited medical benefits as crucial to a professional success.

Accenture surveyed the 1,000 women because "we are always interested in attracting and retaining保留 the best and the brightest," explained LaMae Allen deJongh, noting that globally the company employed 60,000 women.

Women are soon expected to make up half the U.S. workforce5 and the so-called millennials千禧一代, those born after 1980, are now one-third of the working population.

DeJongh, managing director of US human capital人力资本 and diversity at the company, said the survey showed that "one-size is not going to fit all" when it comes to retaining women. Half of the respondents回答者,调查对象 said flexible hours were important to them.

When asked to rank barriers to their careers, 12 percent cited marriage, 19 percent said maternity6产妇的 policies and 30 percent named pay scales工资标准.

The U.S. Department of Labor7 reports that the median中值的 salary for women was 80 percent of men's. When comparing the median weekly earning of those aged8 16 to 34, young women earned 91 percent of what young men did.

Almost 60 percent of the women surveyed reported being negatively impacted by the current economic downturn. And one-third were more concerned with keeping their jobs than achieving the work-personal life balance.
