Diversity is an integral part of CommBank’s vision, culture, values and the way we do business. It offers tangible benefits for our employees, customers and shareholders.
We have a proud history of supporting all our employees and customers from all walks of life. We are a diverse organisation with a strong focus on maintaining an inclusive workplace where all employees can thrive.
Our approach is underpinned by our comprehensive Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, which is endorsed by our Board and Diversity Council and supported through a range of policies and practices, such as flexible work and parental leave.
Our Diversity Council is chaired by our CEO and includes all Executive Committee members. They meet every six months to discuss the Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and update on progress towards our objectives. Each member of the Diversity Council is an Executive Sponsor for an area of our Strategy, and we have established a number of employee network groups to help align our approach to the needs of our people and their communities.
Our commitment to diversity and inclusion touches all areas of our business. We cast this lens over all our people practices to increase transparency and minimise bias. These include recruitment, talent management, development programs, role appointments, flexible work, leave arrangements and succession planning.
