A Bermudian entrepreneur has been published in the prestigious Harvard Business Review

Christie Hunter Arscott’s article centred around research she conducted for the International Consortium for Executive Development Research, which showed a major difference in the main reason women in their early 30s left their employers.

Companies said women left largely due to flexibility needs and family demands — but Ms Hunter Arscott’s findings were that women themselves quit their jobs over compensation.

Her research also showed that women are more likely than men to quit their jobs over pay.

Ms Hunter Arscott, a former Rhodes Scholar and a World Economic Forum global shaper, who divides her time between the US and Bermuda, said that a friend who is also a WEF global shaper saw her work and put her in touch with an editor at the Harvard Business Review.

She added: “They were fascinated by the research I had done and asked me to submit a piece.”

Ms Hunter Arscott, 31, said she was a gender and generational strategist and was at present working with the Global Institute for Emerging Women Leaders, set up for women in the first ten years of their working lives.

She added: “I run my own business helping customers with issues around gender and generations and attracting and promoting millennials and women.

“The institute is only part of what I’m doing. I work with other clients as well.”
