Recognised as an Employer of Choice for gender equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency

In November 2017 Suncorp sponsored the Diversity Council Australia’s first national index of Australian workplace inclusion. We also conducted the Inclusion@Work survey and are proud that our results compare favourably against the National Index, showing strength in both inclusive leadership and team inclusion.

Gender Balance & Pay Equity

In 2017–18 Suncorp achieved gender balance across all leadership roles. With a recent Board appointment, Suncorp will reach 50 per cent female representation on the Board after our Annual General Meeting. In 2018 Suncorp was recognised as an Employer of Choice for gender equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) for the fifth consecutive year.

It’s a matter of principle for Suncorp that all employees be paid fairly for the value they bring to our company and our customers. We conduct biannual reviews of pay equity to analyse and amend any irregularities. Our CEO & Managing Director is a WGEA Pay Equity Ambassador.

Suncorp also provides learning and coaching for women to develop and strengthen their career resilience skills through the Accelerate Women in Leadership program. This helps Suncorp grow our pipeline of female leadership talent.

Age Diversity

Suncorp supports our people aged 50 years and over through the Envisage program, which helps them make positive choices about planning the next phase of their lives and careers. Participants are encouraged to take a holistic view in planning for the future by focusing on career, identity, wellbeing, finances and relationships.

Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) foster a diverse and inclusive workplace by serving as a resource for employees to come together around a common cause. 

Our current ERGs include: 

  • Amplify, an LGBTIQ+ and allies network supporting LGBTIQ+ inclusion
  • Women Connect, a women’s network supporting gender equality and female leadership
  • NZ Millennials, a community for millennials to share ideas and engage with other young professionals in our NZ business
  • Life X, a dedicated resource group for our mature-age workers
