Hmm.. some more comments from Jack Welch

I was reading a blog this morning about Jack Welch’s speech at the SHRM conference and was quite appalled at some of the things that were said- and also surprised that I hadn’t heard more about it to be honest.

Earlier I blogged about Jack Welch and praised him for his comments about the importance of HR in the business.

Then this morning I heard reports from the US about what he said about work-life balance and women.

Essentially he said:

“There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There are work-life choices, and you make them, and they have consequences.”

Welch said, “We’d love to have more women moving up faster, but they’ve got to make the tough choices and know the consequences of each one.”

WTF??

Seems like we are back in the ages… I have seen women do both, and its disappointing that such a prominent CEO thinks it isn’t possible.
