Recognition Scheme
To promote the values of equal opportunities, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and recognise the achievements of employers that demonstrate a commitment to implementing policies and practices on these values, the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) has introduced the Equal Opportunity Employer Recognition Scheme on the 25th year of its operation in 2020.

  1. To cultivate and enhance awareness of the benefits of equal opportunities policies and encourage employers in both public and private sectors to reap the benefits, by implementing equal opportunities and inclusive employment policies and practices.
  2. To give recognition to companies and organisations which have excelled in the implementation of equal opportunities employment policies, and provide a benchmark of good practices for others to follow.
  3. To mainstream equal opportunities values across different sectors and foster spirits of inclusion and diversity, with a view to creating a cultural shift in the wider community and building an inclusive and discrimination-free society.
