Inclusion and diversity
Wesfarmers considers building a diverse and inclusive workforce a key enabler for delivering its objective of satisfactory returns to shareholders. Wesfarmers’ customers and stakeholders are diverse and to gain the best insight into their needs and expectations, and how to meet them, diverse and inclusive teams are required. A diversity of perspectives and backgrounds also strengthens creativity in teams. Moreover, creating an environment that attracts, retains, and develops team members with a wide range of strengths and experiences ensures that Wesfarmers is best equipped for future growth.
Wesfarmers’ commitment to inclusion extends to all people and perspectives. Wesfarmers continues to focus on achieving a gender balance in senior management positions across its divisions and continuing to boost employment of Indigenous people.
