Realty Smartz Promotes Gender Equality in the Workplace.

Since the dawn of time, men and women have been discriminated against based on their gender, whether it be in the family, the community, or in the workplace. It manifests itself in a variety of ways, whether overt or covert, and has a disproportionate impact on women’s professional and work lives, including the positions and responsibilities they are assigned and the possibilities for advancement they are afforded.

We at Realty Smartz are committed to gender equality, and we’ve compiled a list of suggested actions we can take to help achieve this goal:

1. Achieve a healthy work-life balance for women staff members

Biologically, women are equal but not similar to men when it comes to taking time off to care for themselves and their children, such as during pregnancy. When a woman returns to work after a sabbatical or leave, she is often compelled to take a wage cut. Women often suffer physically and emotionally as they try to balance motherhood with their careers.

Even after an extensive overhaul of the law on Maternity Benefits, women still confront a major obstacle in their workplaces: a lack of childcare support from their employers. Companies should think about allowing parents, especially new mothers, to work from home or with more flexibility in their schedules. Rather than merely complying with the law, they should provide their employees with high-quality on-site childcare facilities.

2. Eliminate the wage disparity between men and women

Gender pay inequity will persist as long as the industry fails to close the gender pay gap. There should be a culture of openness and honesty in the workplace where both sexes receive equal pay for equal work, regardless of gender. Policies that ensure that both sexes are treated equally when it comes to employment and promotion should also be implemented.

3. Establish a zero-tolerance policy for harassment

The physical and mental health consequences of sexual harassment are severe for those who have or are enduring it. A firm policy prohibiting sexual harassment must be implemented by every business. Any indicators of harassment at work must be immediately addressed. Employees should be made aware of the consequences if they are found guilty of sexually harassing another employee.

75% of all workplace harassment events go unreported and hence there should be no fear of retaliation for employees who speak up about harassment in the workplace, and the company should create avenues for employees to do so.

Conclusion: Final Thoughts!

Even while we’ve progressed in many ways, gender discrimination remains a major issue in our workplaces and in society today. Managers in the workplace must remain committed to ensuring gender equality, take required actions, develop guidelines, and enforce them so that women can work freely without any judgments or discrimination.
