CBI COMMENTS ON FRAMEWORK FOR VOLUNTARY EQUALITY REPORTING

CBI COMMENTS ON FRAMEWORK FOR VOLUNTARY EQUALITY REPORTING

The CBI today (Wednesday) commented on the launch of the Government’s Think, Act, Report initiative, a voluntary framework for businesses to report equality data.

Katja Hall, CBI Chief Policy Director, said:

“Economic growth and equality go hand in hand. At a time when the economy is fragile, labour market flexibility is crucial. Companies need the right people in the right jobs and employers want to make the most of all available talent.

“This voluntary framework will help women fulfil their potential at work by encouraging businesses to monitor and improve on gender equality.

“It is essential that the scope of the framework extends beyond pay and uses a variety of factors to measure gender balance. These include the number of men and women at different occupational levels, the take up of flexible working, support for returning mums, as well as the provision of mentoring and networking schemes.”
