As part of the process, Home Credit Philippines will undergo the Gender Equality Assessment, Results and Strategies (GEARS), an assessment tool that will analyze and understand the current state of gender equality on the workplace (WGE) within the company. GEARS will provide Philippines-specific data to form an information base used to create policies, guidelines and projects and make decisions to promote more diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Senior management and leaders of Home Credit Philippines will also attend a high-level course on Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Expression (SOGIE). This training will show leaders how they play a vital role in promoting equality within the company and instill gender awareness and sensitivity throughout the organization.
