What is invisible work? What are non-promotable tasks? And, most importantly, are you unknowingly assigning or taking on this type of work? Find out more about this common issue in this episode of Transform Your Workplace. Guest Kelli Thompson, author of the recent Huffington Post article, “Women Do the Most ‘Invisible Work’ at the Office,” talks about her own experiences taking on invisible work and how women can be empowered to say “no” to tasks that don’t advance them toward leadership positions.



  • On average, women get 44% more requests than men to do non-promotable tasks at work. 
  • Non-promotable tasks are tasks that don't contribute to performance results or reviews. 
  • When tasks do not add personal value, align with their career goals and mission, or come with financial compensation, women must be empowered to say “no.”
  • Instead of burdening employees with non-promotable tasks, leaders should consider outsourcing.
  • When it comes to invisible work, female leaders should shift their identity from doer to leader and delegate tasks to others.
