Motorola Solutions, Inc. has been certified an Employer of Choice by the Australian Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).

The WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation is awarded to companies that proactively encourage, recognise and promote gender equality in Australia.

The achievement reaffirms Motorola Solutions’ global commitment and progress in building a diverse and inclusive workforce and becoming a leading employer of women. It is only one of four companies in Australia to earn the citation in WGEA’s Information, Media and Telecommunications industry category.

The citation requires companies to meet strict criteria in areas including leadership, strategy and policy development to promote and develop gender diversity, with senior business leaders being held accountable.

Motorola Solutions Australia earned the citation after implementing a number of successful initiatives. This includes creating a staff-led Inclusion and Diversity Council, sponsoring professional development for women across the ICT sector and reinvigorating human resources policies to provide more flexible working arrangements, superannuation and leave entitlements.
