Konica Minolta recognised as Employer of Choice for Gender Equality, for the second time

Konica Minolta has again received a Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation, in recognition of our continued and deeply-held commitment to gender equality in the workplace. This is the second year in a row, that Konica Minolta has received this citation.

We are committed to applying a best practice approach to create a workplace that is inclusive, fair, and supportive of all people. Inclusion and collaboration are two of our defining values and are an essential part of our people and business strategies.

With an ongoing commitment to, and involvement with, WGEA and Male Champions of Change, we have various programs to improve equality in our workforce including Family and Domestic Violence Support Program and Pay Parity programs, additional paid parental leave, flexible working arrangements, and a diversity and inclusion committee.

“In an industry that has had entrenched gender bias in some roles, we’re working to improve the balance so we open up opportunities for all, and benefit from the diversity of thought and perspective that comes with having men and women more equally represented.” says Dr David Cooke, chairman and managing director.

There are already women in non-traditional roles within Konica Minolta, and with a commitment to equality and diversity this will increase “I’ve always been valued and supported, and have been able to progress my career within Konica Minolta.  Our approach to flexible working has really made a difference not only to me, but my whole team and the company” Gail General Manager, Bids & inside Sales 

 

 

One of our key goals is to foster and maintain an organisational culture that is inclusive and fair so all people feel supported to be their whole selves at work. “My wife and I are incredibly fortunate to have been afforded the flexibility to manage my work and personal life so that we’re able to provide an equally-balanced environment for nurturing our girls.” - Jesus, Client Services 

 

 

We will continue to champion gender equality throughout the business and draw on this experience to expand our diversity and inclusion initiatives, and support everyone in the business to realise their career goals.
