EY Luxembourg awarded the Actions Positives label

Luxembourg, 10 December 2020. EY Luxembourg is proud to be awarded the Actions Positives label by the Ministry for Equality between women and men. This government initiative aims at supporting an inclusive economy and an egalitarian society. It also certifies good practices in terms of equal opportunities between women and men at work, rewarding winning businesses around three pillars: equality of treatment, in decision-making and in the professional-personal life balance.

While ensuring equal treatment between women and men at work, companies can create added value and achieve outstanding and sustainable performance.

A project of positive actions

Based on a voluntary approach and a well-founded application form, EY Luxembourg received ministerial approval that confirms EY’s real commitment to highlighting their policy of equal treatment for all their employees, to support them and leverage their full potential.

The Actions Positives label granted to EY Luxembourg is the result of the full implementation of key actions which have been undertaken over several years and will continue in the future. This label also testifies to the EY’s commitment to an inclusive culture, which is part of its DNA.

Olivier Coekelbergs, Managing Partner of EY Luxembourg, comments: “we are very proud to be honored by the Ministry for Equality between women and men for our good practices in support of a better working world. Thanks to the Actions Positives initiative, we have been pleased to highlight our daily commitment to providing our people with a working environment fostering diversity and valuing all individual differences. At EY, we care about our people, women and men, making sure that they feel accompanied and help them achieve excellence at every stage of their career. Maintaining such a balance is our greatest wealth. Different points of view lead to better questions and answers, enhancing creativity and innovation. Fostering integrity, flexibility, mobility, training and growth for all, with full respect of equal treatment, is just part of our daily commitment to which our people are really grateful. Such a culture also enables our profession to attract even more women at every level of our organization. As we invest in the success of each individual and encourage them to support each other, it will ultimately benefit our people, our clients and the community.
