With the EDGE certification we have the opportunity to verify if our ambition to treat men and women equally at IKEA is a living reality. By reaching the highest level of certification, we tighten IKEAs company structure and culture that prevents pay gaps, underrepresentation of women in management positions and different career paths for women.
We are seeing exciting initiatives across industries like the EDGE certification program, which was designed to help companies measure and hold themselves accountable for creating a more equal workplace. Google it.
Diversity & Inclusion must be a CEO priority. Thank you @EDGE_CERT for helping measure true progress!
We cannot go out and talk about gender equality if we’re not serious about it here. Women and man deserve the same opportunities to succeed here. And study after study shows that diversity has a positive impact on productivity.
