Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC), a leading property developer, made it as one of only two Philippine companies included in the 2020 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI).
It is also the first time that Filipino companies were recognized in the reference index that started in 2016.
RLC was included in this year’s index for scoring at or above global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect high level of disclosure and overall performance across the frameworks’ five pillars: Female Leadership and Talent Pipeline; Equal pay and Gender Pay Parity; Inclusive Culture; Sexual Harassment Polices; and Pro-Women Brand.
In particular, the firm scored high in equal representation in the workplace. The company’s ratio of men to women in leadership positions is 50:50, while seven in 11 employees are women. The overall GEI average in this category is 48.06 percent.
Since it started four years ago, Bloomberg’s GEI has become a gold seal for companies around the world to publicly demonstrate commitment to gender equality and gender-equal workplaces.
A select number of companies across 42 countries and regions is recognized by Bloomberg as a leader in inclusion initiatives.
By being part of GEI, RLC is recognized among top companies around the globe employing best-in-class policies and benefits to support gender equality.
