Finally, workplaces should eliminate any forms of gender discrimination on the grounds of marital status, pregnancy or maternity, and in relation to family and caring responsibilities for both women and men. The necessary supporting social services and facilities should be put in place to enable parents to effectively combine family obligations with work responsibilities. The achievement of gender equality in the workplace is not only right and fair, but also very important for the productivity of a business organization and a nation. Research shows that companies with gender equality tend to perform better. This is because they have a diversity of talents and varied perspectives necessary for a more holistic analysis of issues facing the organization, leading to better decision-making and spurring greater collective effort towards implementing those decisions.
