Under the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Act), which replaced the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act 1999 (EOWW Act), Resource Development Group Ltd, including its subsidiaries (RDG), is required to report to staff and shareholders in accordance with the reporting requirements and compliance framework stipulated by the Act on an annual basis.
The aim of the legislation is to encourage measures that improve gender equality outcomes for both women and men in the workplace and to provide data that the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), the federal government agency responsible for administering the Act, can utilise to develop industry-based educational benchmarks and future strategies to improve gender equality in workplaces.
RDG’s Workplace Profile & Report is attached for the 2022-23 reporting period which reports on the 12 month period 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023, and which was lodged with the WGEA on 30 June 2023.
If you have any comments on RDG’s Workplace Profile & Report, please email them in the first instance to RDG’s Human Resources team firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments guidelines can be found under the Reports tab on the WGEA website www.wgea.gov.au. Alternatively, you can lodge comments with the WGEA direct via the comments form available in the same location on their website.
There is no time restriction on when comments can be provided. However, comments provided during the 28 days after the submission of RDG’s Workplace Profile & Report will allow for those comments to be taken into account by RDG in providing additional information to the WGEA, and by the WGEA in requesting additional information to assist in assessing compliance with the Act.
We take this opportunity to remind all staff and shareholders of RDG that RDG fully supports gender equality through demonstrated adherence to best practice fair, equitable and legally compliant Human Resource policies, procedures and practices.
