Standard 2: You embed gender equality in your recruitment, remuneration and promotion processes. Men and women utilise flexible work options, without penalty.
What do equal and respectful conditions look like?
- You start with statistics – look at pay, seniority and length of contracts. This will tell you where to focus efforts to achieve gender equality for men and women in your workplace
- You use transparent recruitment and promotion processes that include actions to eliminate bias, and applaud women’s leadership – this will support progress
- You ensure flexible work and access to parental leave are secured in enterprise agreements and policies. These are supported by leaders, embedded in the culture, and promoted to both female and male staff
- You and committed leaders cultivate a workplace culture that genuinely supports men and women to balance work and care responsibilities. This is needed for true gender equality in the workplace.
