Stuff reports Salmond said the modern workplace was more "ruthless and transactional" than when she was young. 

She told delegates it was not enough to take old hierarchies and put women at the top, as those old structures of leadership had not been effective.

Instead, workplaces needed to be humane and some New Zealand businesses "need to do some severe soul-searching", she said.
