The battle of the sexes in the office has been exposed and women have come out on top!
A study into 4,000 workers has found that women are the most organised, are more likely to meet their deadlines and are also more likely to turn up for work.
On the flip side, men seem to be struggling to keep on top of things, lose documents on their messy desks and even forget to call people back.
The research, by DYMO labelling products, found that around one in 20 men have missed out on the promotion because their bosses felt they were so unorganised a tenth of men say admit they have no structure to their work life whatsoever.
More than 40% of men say they miss at least one deadline a month, compared to less than a third of women.
When it comes to organisation, the Organisation Wars report shows whilst 62% of women keep themselves up-to-date with a diary or to-do list, 45% of blokes rely on their memory and ditch a comprehensive filing system for a chaos of a desk!
In the following video, Karren Brady talks about the research as well as her tips for juggling everyday life as a mother with a demanding career.
The 'The Apprentice' star, who replaced assistant Margaret Mountford, also discusses her role as a woman in football and what it's really like working with Lord Alan Sugar.
