EDGE is the world-leading global assessment methodology and business certification standard for gender equality that incorporates benchmarking, metrics and accountability.

How EDGE certification works

EDGE Certification is a robust approach to analysing your company's status quo on gender equality and facilitating improvements to foster equal career opportunities. When you commission us to certify your organisation against the EDGE standard, we'll verify your self-assessment of the five areas of analysis: equal pay for equivalent work, recruitment and promotion, leadership development training and mentoring, flexible working and company culture. To this aim, one of our qualified auditors will visit you at your premises. Once any potential inconsistencies have been corrected, you will receive an official EDGE certificate.
