From the Paper:

"The female workforce in Kuwait is also not efficient to utilize them for the new challenges of the business environment. The attitude of the workforce for particular kind of jobs is also not favorable for the challenging jobs. With the move of the 21st century the human resource in Kuwait will face more critical challenges due to increasing advancement and competition level in the business sector. These problems are more critical in the banking sector as this sector demands for more skilled and technically expert employees to perform the financial services accounted by the banking systems."
