Aligned Leisure has achieved the landmark feat of pay parity in its 2023 workplace gender equality reporting, demonstrating outstanding progress in its effort to act on the nation’s workplace gender inequality.
Australia’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) reports that women earn just 87 cents per every dollar earned by men, with men twice as likely to be in the top earning bracket and women 1.5 times more likely to be in the lowest.
Since its inception, Aligned Leisure has championed the growth and development of its people, including women, and has been close to achieving pay parity since WGEA reporting commenced. 58 per cent of management-level staff are Female leaders.
Aligned Leisure’s gender equality strategy is set to ensure that no gender bias occurs at any point in the remuneration process and includes transparency about pay scales and salary bands.
Aligned Leisure CEO Shane Dunne said that WGEA reporting gave current and prospective staff confidence that remuneration at the organisation was free of gender bias.
“Female team members make up a majority of our people across all locations,” he explained.
“Each makes a huge contribution in our day-to-day work and can come to work confidently that they are valued and an essential part of our work.
“We will continue to work with the WGEA to ensure our salaries best reflect the role, performance and appropriate benchmarking, free of any bias.”
