“The Top 3 work motivators even in the tougher economic climate are still most driven by making a difference, challenge and believing in their organization’s direction. This plays out across industries, except in Accountancy, where women are most motivated by recognition and firm culture, and Media, where women are primarily motivated by team satisfaction”
