Why we’re proud of HUB180

80% of organisations meet our minimum benchmark to become an Endorsed Employer. HUB180 was created when we asked what we could be doing to help the remaining 20% improve their policies. Because by helping these organisations, we can help create more great workplaces for women.

Here’s what the team behind the hub has to say about it so far.


It can be very hard for employers to truly understand and know which policies employee benefits they should invest in to make a meaningful impact on their business. WORK180 is in a unique position to support employers. We have visibility on some of the best practices to attract and retain women across multiple industries and regions. We've helped organisations make policy changes that positively impact thousands of employees. This free hub of resources is going to make that challenging but important job so much easier!
