Employment

As one of Australia’s largest employers, we are continuing to provide sustainable employment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. As at 30 June 2020, 1,858 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander team members worked in our businesses. This equates to 1.9 per cent of our Australian workforce. This figure includes all full-time and part-time Indigenous team members and casual team members who have worked a shift within the 30-day period prior to reporting. We recognise that we have work to do to achieve our target of employment parity of three per cent of our Australian workforce by 2022.

We are committed to providing opportunities to Indigenous people to expand their careers. Currently, high potential Indigenous team members are identified and developed through existing talent management processes. During the 2021 financial year, we will focus on deliberate strategies for increasing Indigenous people in leadership positions. We will continue to develop our partnership with CareerTrackers to form pathways for young Indigenous professionals into our business.
