“Creating a healthy and respectful workplace for all employees is a key goal at Solomon Airlines and one especially championed by the company’s Human Resources Manager Hernandia Zoleveke together with the female staff.
“However, the message from the women of Solomon Airlines goes much further, beyond the company to the broader community that times must change and that companies like their own can play a leading role in education through policies and consequences which makes it clear that violence and harassment in the workplace and at home should not be tolerated, a statement from the Airlines said.
“It is more than two years since the airline opted to join the ‘Waka Mere’ Commitment to Action initiative which aims to promote better opportunities and supportive workplaces for female employees in the Solomon Islands and already positive change has occurred.
“Launched in July 2017 at the Australian Solomon Islands Business Forum, Waka Mere is led by International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group in collaboration with the Solomon Islands Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI).
“The initiative now includes 15 of the largest private sector companies in the Solomon Islands with nearly 6,000 employees combined.”
