Whilst this situation is extraordinary, working from home and flexible working arrangements are not new concepts and, in fact, are key enablers of achieving workplace gender equality. The Agency has developed comprehensive resources to help you plan and implement these arrangements.
AS COVID-19 continues to cause disruption in many workplaces, the Agency has decided to delay the start and extend the report submission period for 2020 to assist employers who may need some additional time to prepare and submit compliance reports.
There is a lot of exciting progress in the Professional, Scientific and Technical Services industry, with leading employers like Aurecon at the forefront. This engineering, design and infrastructure advisory company set their sights on improving gender balance in their workforce, with tangible results.
Thanks to a new report produced by the University of Queensland, we now have definitive proof of something our Agency has long suspected: that the Employer of Choice Gender Equality citation (EOCGE, the citation) is driving improved gender equality outcomes in Australian workplaces.
Big news: the 2020 leaders in Australian workplace gender equality have been announced! The EOCGE citation has been in place since 2014 and is designed to encourage, recognise and promote active commitment to achieving gender equality in Australian workplaces.
The Agency is currently transitioning from AUSkey to myGovID. As part of this transition, and to minimise potential disruption to reporting organisations, we have temporarily removed access to the online reporting portal.
