Culture and Environment
Having an employee-friendly culture at the workplace is definitely one of the keystones of the MGA’s success. The Authority is made up of all the life experiences each employee has brought into the organisation. We believe that having a strong, positive and clearly-defined culture attracts the right fit and talent.
We know where we want to be as an organisation and we believe in our employees’ input in order to constantly improve the way we do things.
Mutual respect and basic courtesy are definitely ingrained in our ethos and we treat both the public and our colleagues fairly and consistently, in a non-discriminatory manner with proper regard to rights and responsibilities.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
The MGA takes special care to respect the diversity, talents and abilities of all its employees. We define diversity as being all the unique characteristics that make up each and every one of us including personality, lifestyle, work experience, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion and race, amongst others.
INCREASING THE NUMBER OF WOMEN LEADERS
The MGA is strongly committed to increasing female participation within its workforce, and this is also being done by offering opportunities to women in leadership positions. Within the Authority women play an important role in various departments, such as sitting on the Executive Committee, holding Managerial positions and offering consultation services. The number of women in the MGA’s workforce has also increased over the last years, providing a more balanced work environment.
MGA NCPE AWARD
On the 30th April 2015 the National Commission for the Promotion of Equality (NCPE) recertified the MGA with the Equality Mark for a period of three years.
This recertification is based on evidence that the MGA kept its commitment to implement relevant policies and practices relating to gender equality and family friendly measures at the place of work and in the access to and provision of goods and services. The MGA also demonstrated that it has the will and capacity to keep these good practices in the years to come.
FAMILY FRIENDLY MEASURES
At the MGA, family means a lot to us and we offer a number of benefits and flexibility to our people. The Authority, in fact, offers teleworking, reduced hours, flexible hours, maternity and paternity leave, study leave and career breaks to all our employees.
