Violence against women – whether it occurs in or beyond the workplace – impacts on the health and safety of women at work, their wellbeing and their productivity. It may impact negatively on the reputation of the organisation and bottom-line profit and loss.
The Workplace Accreditation Program recognises workplaces that are taking active steps to prevent and respond to violence against women, accrediting them as a White Ribbon Workplace. Assessment of White Ribbon Workplaces against the criteria is undertaken by our independent Assessors. White Ribbon Workplace Assessors are specialists with expertise in organisational development, business management, organisational change, quality improvement, gender equity and accreditation.
White Ribbon Workplaces are centres of respect and proactivity in relation to the safety of women in the workplace, and are members of a truly leading edge cohort, both nationally and internationally. The Program is an award-winning initiative which is complementary to women’s empowerment initiatives and strengthens the organisation’s stance in relation to anti-bullying legislation. Key benefits:
- drive social change
- improved office safety and morale
- increased staff knowledge and skills to address this issue
- improved retention rates and lower staff turnover
- risk mitigation
- improved work productivity and reduced absenteeism
- improved reputation
- becoming an employer of choice.
