21 February 2018
For the fifth consecutive year, Suncorp has been recognised as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).
EOCGE is a voluntary leading practice recognition program designed to encourage and promote gender equality in Australian workplaces.
"We are thrilled to be recognised as an industry leader for workplace gender equality and for the progress we have made to positively contribute to gender equality as an organisation," said Suncorp's Chief People Experience Officer Amanda Revis.
"We have worked hard to embed equality for all genders through inclusive people policies and workplace practices, including flexible work, pay, access to promotion, development, career opportunities and representation at all levels of the organisation.
"We are proud to receive this award at a time when we have achieved gender balance (50% men and 50% women) across our total leadership team."
Suncorp and other citation holders were assessed against a number of criteria covering gender remunerations gaps, discrimination, targets for improving gender equality outcomes, flexible working and other initiatives to support family responsibilities.
Recognition as a citation holder is testament to Suncorp's ongoing commitment to gender equality and inclusion.
