4 Reasons Why the Indian Electronic Manufacturing Sector Favors Women Employees: Breaking Stereotypes

As ever-increasingly sophisticated technologies that require dexterous handling are integrated into production processes, more women enter traditionally male-dominated industries, particularly the manufacturing sector. The Indian electronic manufacturing sector is currently experiencing a significant and far-reaching transformation, accompanied by a notable surge in the active involvement of women in the workforce, thereby challenging entrenched stereotypes. The percentage of female workers in the past was 10% to 20%, varied by manufacturing sector. A notable surge of female employees, reaching as high as 100%, has been observed in the electronic manufacturing sector (EMS). This notable surge in the need for a female workforce indicates an expanding recognition of the significant contributions and unique viewpoints that female experts contribute to the field of manufacturing. This encouraging development not only corresponds with initiatives to close the gender gap but also emphasizes the sector’s dedication to utilizing a wide range of skilled individuals to increase efficiency.

Here are four compelling reasons why the electronic manufacturing sector is increasingly recognizing and valuing the contributions of women.

Innate Skill Sets:

Females exhibit superior learning ability and a concentrated mindset, which are pivotal attributes in the swiftly progressing electronic manufacturing industry. The industry places a high premium on the output consistency exhibited by women and their substantial contribution to the accuracy demanded in the assembly of delicate components.

Specialized Dexterity for EMS:

The Electronic Manufacturing Sector (EMS) requires precise component assembly, a domain in which women demonstrate exceptional finger dexterity. Their high proficiency guarantees the precise execution of complex tasks, which renders them highly suitable for the position.

Exceptional on the Assembly Line:

Women consistently demonstrate superior performance compared to men due to their laser-like concentration, unparalleled organizational acumen, and remarkable aptitude for acquiring knowledge at an accelerated rate. Their capacity for quick learning enhances the sector’s ability to adjust to swiftly developing technologies.

Lower Attrition:

The electronic manufacturing sector exhibits a notable distinction in terms of employee commitment and stability, as women experience comparatively lower attrition rates than males. This demonstrates the establishment of a steadfast and committed labor force, thereby strengthening the sector’s recognition of the contributions that women make to their positions.

The electronic manufacturing sector is undergoing a paradigm shift that challenges preconceived notions and signifies a tenacious movement towards a future in the manufacturing industry that is more inclusive and diverse. The electronic manufacturing industry is dedicated to cultivating a diverse and equitable work environment that provides unwavering support.
