Holding Redlich achieves gender pay gap of only 2.1 per cent

27 February 24 - Media Release

National law firm Holding Redlich is pleased to announce a gender pay gap of only 2.1 per cent, as nearly 5,000 Australian private sector employers have disclosed their gender pay gaps for the first time today.

Promoting transparency and accountability, the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) publishes base salary and total remuneration median gender pay gaps for private sector employers in Australia with 100 or more employees. The results reveal that Holding Redlich is one of the 30 per cent of Australian employers whose median gender pay gap falls within the target range between -5 per cent and +5 per cent, compared to 62 per cent of median employer gender pay gaps over 5 per cent in favour of men.

Holding Redlich prides itself on addressing inequalities and ensuring gender equality through continuous analysis of remuneration data, benchmarking against industry standards, and gender pay equity audits. Proactive measures, including enhancing parental leave entitlements, have played a pivotal role in balancing the traditional gender pay gap.

Through its Flexibility@HR program, Holding Redlich encourages flexible working to lessen the traditionally negative impact on female careers. A one-on-one parental leave coaching program further guides employees in setting up successful flexible working arrangements.

“Making gender equality a strategic priority not only creates a great workplace for all employees but also attracts, develops, and retains quality talent, positively impacting our team and overall firm performance,” says Troy Lewis, Holding Redlich’s National Managing Partner.

“The publication of gender pay gaps today serves as a catalyst for action and change. It is vital that we act to ensure all employees are fairly represented, equally valued, and rewarded in their workplaces,” Troy adds.

Holding Redlich's national Inclusion and Diversity Committee actively supports education, awareness, and the celebration of diversity.

The firm's recruitment and selection practices also align with a commitment to gender equality and diversity, promoting fairness, equity, and transparency in the process. Recognised by the Australian Government's Workplace Gender Equality Agency as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality for 15 consecutive years, Holding Redlich takes a tailored approach, understanding each team member's career goals and providing the opportunities and tools to achieve them.
