“WeAreOpen launched the Supporting Circle for organizations that want to contribute to WeAreOpen’s mission to raise awareness that openness is a value for organizations and help businesses and employees experience, learn and show it’s benefits, while actively shaping openness in their own organization with the opportunities that the Circle offers. The members of the Supporting Circle are typically those who would like to take a step further and strive to be part of the real-life community of openness-promoting organizations. Hence as the members of the Circle they gather regularly, and leverage on the presentations and tools that WeAreOpen offers to the Circle members to build a more open workplace. 

Supporting circle members are the WeAreOpen annual sponsors and those large and small businesses that opted for the Supporting Circle status.

Two Steps for Companies

Over the last two years, 60% of the Hungarian employees experienced some change at their workplace directed at ensuring equal opportunities for women and men. But we are still a long way off from where we want, where we need to be. And employees, as well, expect continuous improvement.

Building on our national representative research, and to help companies improve their internal gender equality, we launched the Two Steps for Companies Program. To be more gender equal, the first step, we believe, is to know where you are right now. With the help of our amazing partner, Gemius, we can measure your company, benchmark it against the national average, and, using this data, help you with action items as well. And when you’re ready, we’ll remeasure your company to study the progress made!

Why take the Two Steps for Companies Program

"Over the last two years, 60% of the Hungarian employees experienced some change at their workplace directed at ensuring equal opportunities for women and men. Employees expect continuous improvement. Equal proportions of female and male employees - 63% - believe that women and men have to work together to ensure that women have equal opportunities in the workplace. Although, women and men have a different experience about what needs to be improved next. So WeAreOpen decided to launch Two Steps for Companies, a long term program, to show how everyone can benefit from a more gender equal environment, inspire women and men to work together to ensure women get equal opportunity at the workplaces, and to equip companies with the data and tools that show them where they are right now and what are the necessary next steps to improve gender equality internally. Our vision is an ecosystem, where all the employers measure on an annual basis where they are on their journey according to their employees when it comes to gender equality, and make decisions based on data. WeAreOpen designed the Two Steps For Companies tool together with Gemius that helps make this happen, and even provides benchmarking opportunity, currently to the national average, and on the longer term, to industrial averages as well. The program is called Two Steps, because we at WeAreOpen and the majority of people in Hungary believe that women and men have to work together to ensure equal opportunities for women at the workplace, and if we do it together, we reach further."

The Benefits

"Two Steps For Companies provides organizations with a data-driven approach to measure whether their employees feel they work in an environment where all women and men are given equal opportunity to excel and are assessed on the basis of their performance. Organizations that participate in the Two Steps for Companies Program can measure their own performance against that of the national average, made available through the WeAreOpen Research Based on the results, WeAreOpen and Gemius will provide actionable insights for the organization to implement, working towards a more gender equal workspace. Hear your employees’ and what makes them happy - implement positive change within the organization"
