The overwhelming feeling of crippling self-doubt and dread known as Imposter Syndrome has impacted a whopping 62 per cent of people at work, according to a report by Access Commercial Finance.
The survey of over 3,000 adults in the UK shows over two-thirds of women (66 per cent) have suffered from imposter syndrome compared to over half of men (56 per cent) within the last 12 months. This raises a significant question: are women more likely to experience feeling inadequate in the workplace?
In light of International Women’s Day, Instant Offices delves into why many women experience this adverse phenomenon, which UK industries have the highest ratio of self-doubters and how employees can beat imposter syndrome at work.
