Assessment Tool

What’s your company’s score on gender equality as well as work-life balance issues?

In the context of the SHARE Project, we invite you to take this self-assessment quiz and find out how the company you work for scores on issues of gender equality and work-life balance. The final score can serve as a starting point to evaluate where your company stands at the moment and also provide a first look into the changes that you can implement, either by participating in the SHARE program and being awarded the Equality Label for Businesses, or acting independently within the company’s own resources.

Every question has 3 possible answers.
Below you can find what each answer indicates.

YES – The company I work for implements all the above in an effective manner.
SOMETIMES - The company I work for implements some of the above. The intention is there, however we need guidance.
NO – The company I work for does not implement any of the above, expect those that are legally binding.

Thank you for taking the quiz!
