Working at Wesfarmers

We believe the only true sustainable advantage is the quality and performance of our people. Each Wesfarmers division operates as a separate business and therefore has a distinct culture. However, there are four core values that drive all of our businesses and shape our culture as a whole:

Our values


  • Acting ethically in all dealings.


  • Openness and honesty in reporting, feedback and ideas.
  • Accept that people make mistakes and seek to learn from them.


  • Significant delegation of authority and decision making to divisions.
  • Accountability for performance.
  • Protect and enhance our reputation


  • Strong and ready to make bold decisions and challenge the status quo in pursuit of growth and sustainability.
  • Support and encourage an environment free of fear and blame.
Wesfarmers recognises the identification and development of talent as an investment with expected returns not only for the business, but also for our people.

We value people with demonstrated talent in three key areas:

Being commercial

  • The knowledge, experience and thinking ability required to plan and make sound business decisions.

Delivering results

  • The personal implementation and execution skills required to deliver superior outcomes.

Engaging people

  • The communication and relationship skills required to influence people to deliver superior outcomes.
