2022 marks the third time in a row when MONETA was included in the exclusive selection of the prestigious Bloomberg’s Gender-equality index among 418 companies worldwide. MONETA’s rating has improved significantly, and it remains the only Czech company included in the Index. The main reason for MONETA’s success is its relatively low gender pay gap, inclusive culture, consistence prevention and strict policy in the case of sexual harassment, or a development program for talented women.
