Dallas, Texas 08/01/2014 (ustradevoice) – eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY), called as the most gender equal technology company, still believes in hiring more men. It has got almost 33,000 employees. It has provided the details of its workplace diversity. It has landed in the footprints of other tech companies including Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR), Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL). All these companies have disclosed the details of their workplace diversity. It is for the first time eBay will provide the details.

Hires men

In the detailed figures released, it is visible that eBay hires Hispanics, women and black people. However, when it comes to gender diversity, there are more white and Asian men in the tech company. Only 42% of 33,000 employees are women. If it is compared to the figures of Google and Yahoo, it is still better as Yahoo has got 37% of employees as women whereas Google has got 30% of employees as women.

The upper management

The workplace figures in the top management of eBay are not impressive. When it comes to leaders, only 28% are women who work at director level or above. The tech division is also dominated by men as men makeup for the 76% of tech workforce. Talking about the non-tech arm, it is balanced between the female employees and male employees. Women form 49% of the total non-tech employees.

Black and Hispanic

eBay Inc (NASDAQ:EBAY) has got a number of black and Hispanic employees as compared to its peers, The black people forms 7% of eBay’s US workforce. Hispanic forms 5% of eBay’s workforce. These figures are again poor at upper management and the eBay’s tech division.  Most of the people in the US workforce are while, but the tech division is full of Asian people.  The report clearly tells that eBay is in a much better position in terms of societal diversity as compared to its peers.
