Konica Minolta has, for the third consecutive year, received a Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation, which demonstrates our ongoing commitment, and success, in achieving gender equality in the workplace.
This citation is testament to the culture we have created at Konica Minolta Australia that encourages and promotes gender equality in the workplace.
“We do this because it is aligned with our core values as a company but also because we understand what it means for employees to work for a company that values gender equality in today’s society,” said Dr David Cooke, chairman and managing director, Konica Minolta Australia.
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 flexible work options, parental leave, pay parity and women in management and underrepresented roles.
Key components of our programs include:
Konica Minolta’s parental leave policy assisted my family immensely when my wife transitioned back to her full time employment. At this time I took six weeks paid parental leave to care for our 11 month old son and transitioned him into full time childcare. The support that Konica Minolta offered helped reduce the stress and pressure that our family that would have otherwise experienced.
John, State Service Delivery Manager
Working for an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality means that I feel valued and heard in my role as an account director. Konica Minolta supports me in an industry where women are often overlooked.
Elisabeth, Account Director
Gender equality is an important part of ensuring we have a culture that encourages its entire workforce to reach their potential no matter their circumstance, and can support a changing workforce into the future. It also ensures that the business is in the best place to nurture, retain and attract the best talent.
