It’s interesting to see the motivating factors in workplaces for men and women in the ‘What Motivates Men and Women at Work?’ infographic.

According to the graph, the motivating factor for getting out of bed for men, aside from fear of failure, is to acquire more power at their workplace while women seek out security and recognition. That’s not to say that women are not afraid of failure or that men don’t seek recognition, but the statistics in the chart reflect the looming inequality in the workplace. Despite the amount of successful females, the stereotype of the emotional woman still exists, which is one of the motivators for women to gain more recognition for their achievements. While females seek a friendlier and less hostile work environment, males want to rise to higher positions so they can "exercise their authority and influence others."
