The is a Project part- financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the overall objective is to sensitise the social partners to the various benefits including smoother work processes /relations as well as increased productivitiy that may arise due to the introduction of family-friendly provisions. The Project is made up of the following components:
a. Research into the introduction of family friendly measures at the work place
b. Gender Pay Review
c. Teleworking pilot project
d. Gender mainstreaming at a national level
The project should facilitate the process of introducing family friendly measures and reduce gender segregation. It shall encourage employees to enter/or remain in/re-enter the labour market, provide the opportunities for women to avail themselves of
advancement opportunities, whilst encouraging more women to take up and /or continue training.
This project aims to target the Social Partners especially HR Managers, whilst enabling men and women to reconcile to their work with family responsibilities. This would also facilitate the process for women to enter the labour market sectors in which they are under represented, especially those women with no vocational qualifications, and women returning to the labour market after a period of absence.
