Gender equality can help your business weather the covid-19 storm
Women’s employment has been hit hard by COVID-19 and it is highly likely that there may be a loss of female talent in the workplace if businesses don’t act to support their female staff. This could drive up your costs, including recruitment, training and the loss of experienced staff.
We've developed new guidance for businesses on supporting the women in your workforce, while driving benefits for your business. It contains practical and easy-to-implement actions that you can take to ensure return to work plans and processes are gender-proofed.
The business benefits of gender equality are well-evidenced, driving improved business performance and economic growth. New ways of working can support the women in your workforce and a safe return to work for all.
