Women 'more satisfied by running their own business'

New research by the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) has revealed that women who take the plunge and start their own business have enhanced job satisfaction and a better work-life balance.

The Herald Scotland reported how job satisfaction rose from 55 to 75 per cent - with 100 per cent being complete satisfaction - among women who started their own companies, with their confidence also surging from 64 to 73 per cent.

Similarly, the 300 UK-based female entrepreneurs who responded to the survey revealed how happiness with their work-life balance had improved from 60 to 70 per cent.

Anne McPherson, managing director of diversity in business at RBS business and commercial banking, said: "This research reveals that starting a business can be a really life-enhancing decision for many women."

In addition, the figures went on to reveal that they were generally more efficient at setting up companies than their male counterparts, with 66 per cent starting up within a year of thinking up an idea compared to 60 per cent of men.
