Encouraging a gender-neutral culture of flexible work at GPT – case study

By June 29, 2021 No Comments

In this case study, we look at how we have been working with leading Australian property group GPT since 2015 in creating a gender-neutral culture by
supporting the working parents within their organisation.

GPT were looking to advance key strategic objectives, namely:

  • Being a diverse and inclusive employer of choice
  • Offering the right support to retain, engage and enable working parents
  • Supporting an objective to achieve senior leadership gender parity
  • Creating a gender-neutral culture of flexible work via support for their leaders

Creating a comprehensive programme of support

How Do You Do It worked with GPT to create a comprehensive suite of programs that supported working parents and their managers at key stages in the transition from working person to working parent, and beyond.

Client testimonial

“How Do You Do It have been fantastic partners to support GPT on our diversity journey. We began working with Virginia and her team back in 2015 as part of our new Gender strategy and wanting to ensure we were offering the right support to our working parents in managing their work and home life. Following our initial pilot, the Working Mothers and Fathers’ programs
have been an overwhelming success and the participants have not only felt more confident in their work and values, but also built a community of support with each other.”
