Workplace gender equality is progressing towards closing the gender pay gap, but retailers have a role to play to keep the momentum for change moving forward. With the passing of the Workplace Gender Equality Amendment (Closing the Gender Pay Gap) Bill through parliament, medium to large retailers of 100 or more employees are now required by law to report on gender pay inequality through the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).

Joining us for an exclusive webinar on Thursday 27 April is WGEA CEO Mary Wooldridge, who will provide invaluable information on what the new compliance measure means for employers as well as the industry, and how you can get ahead on your reporting.

Turning to some Association news, we are excited to announce that Victoria Hansen has been appointed to Industry Workforce Advisor. Victoria’s career with the NRA began 7 years ago and has since worked across workplace relations and membership engagement. Her wealth of knowledge and experience with the sector makes her well suited for this role which will strengthen our capability to provide members with workforce planning, addressing challenges and supporting growth.

Looking ahead, the policy and workplace relations teams have a suite of online resources rolling out over the coming months. Our HR Leaders Forum is hitting Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in May and June, and an insightful webinar on employee wellbeing and how to identify and manage psychosocial risks in the workplace is happening in July.
