KYIV, 22 November 2011 – Ernst & Young in Ukraine has been recognized at an Equal Opportunities competition that was jointly organized by the EU-funded project, “Women and children’s rights in Ukraine,” the Ministry for Family, Youth and Sports and the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine.
Ernst & Young was ranked first among companies employing 101 to 1000 employees that provide for gender equality at work. Furthermore, the company was recognized as the most family friendly company.
Equal career opportunities, the absence of gender differentiation in pay or professional education, compliance with labor legislation, the number of women in leading positions, the attitude toward female employees with children and other issues were taken in to account when making the decision.
Alexei Kredisov, Managing Partner, Ukraine concludes, “For EY, diversity and inclusiveness are, and will continue to be, strengths and critical aspects of the corporate culture. A sustainable, inclusive culture enables EY to deliver high quality service to our clients, create a competitive advantage and drive market leadership. Without our unique culture and attitude toward people matters, we would not be the kind of team we are today.”
Marina Zakharina, Head of Ukraine’s HR Department, says, “Some 62% of our professionals in Ukraine are women. Women prevail at Staff and Senior positions and are represented equally with men at Manager and Senior Manager positions. We want all our women to fully achieve their potential with Ernst & Young and have comfortable conditions for combining their work and family.”
