How Edge Creates Change

HOW TO CHANGE: USE A BUSINESS METHODOLOGY

Companies apply processes to drive business. EDGE recognized that the same business discipline is the path to and proof of workplace gender equality.  By using the EDGE Assessment Methodology a clear picture emerges of a company’s commitment as measured in terms of equal pay for equivalent work, recruitment and promotion, leadership development training & mentoring, flexible working  and the company culture.
