pitt&sherry recognised as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality

pitt&sherry is thrilled to be recognised as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.

Australia’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency awards the EOCGE citation to encourage, recognise and promote organisations’ active commitment to achieving gender equality in Australian workplaces. Organisations that achieve the EOCGE citation must meet criteria from seven areas and be compliant with the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012.

“We know that gender equality is good for business and crucial to our post-COVID-19 economic recovery. By driving better gender equality outcomes in their workplaces, these EOCGE citation holders are showing the right way forward for other Australian businesses,” says Libby Lyons Director of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.

Some of the actions pitt&sherry has taken towards achieving gender equity in the workplace:

  • Making flexible working practices available to employees at all levels
  • Pay equity reviews to ensure fair and equitable pay and career progression opportunities
  • Updating our policies including the introduction of a procurement policy
  • Creating leadership development programs.

This recognition comes off the back of pitt&sherry’s recent Engineer’s Australia award for gender diversity and further strengthens the significant progress and our aspirations for workplace gender equity.

pitt&sherry’s CEO Benita Husband says, “This is our first time achieving the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation. We are committed to building a gender equal workplace and are thrilled to be recognised by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.”

HR Manager Sarah Mills added, “with changes to the criteria becoming more rigorous, our achievement of the EOCGE citation is significant. pitt&sherry will continue to strive for strategies, policies and changes that promote gender equality.”
