Diversity and inclusion

We believe a diverse and inclusive Australia encourages better relationships within communities and the workplace alike.

Gender

In 2020, women represented 36.9 per cent of our workforce and 38.4 percent of our senior managers. Our executive team has 44.4% female representation as does the Australia Post Board.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

Just over 1,100 employees or 3.0 per cent of our employees identify as Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander or both at 30 June 2020.

LGBTI+

We proudly welcome and support people of any sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status. Some of our achievements include PostPride, network growth and sponsorship.

Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD)

At 30 June 2020, 30 per cent of our workforce were from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Our workforce is made up of people from 147 nations and 65 languages are spoken by people across our workforce.

People with disability

We employed more than 2,000 people with disability at 30 June 2020. This represents 5.7 per cent of our total workforce.

Safety

Dog safety campaign

Specialised training programs have been trialled to teach posties how to read a dog's body language and safely manage canine encounters.

As a result, our posties have changed the way they interact with dogs.
 

Giving at Post

We support our people to meaningfully contribute to community organisations and causes they are passionate about.  

We invite our people to give in ways that suit them through a range of programs. These include:

  • Offering matched giving to eligible employees*, where they can donate to a charity of their choice, through our Workplace Giving program.
  • Inviting our people to nominate a community organisation for a grant of up to $500 through the People of Post Grants.
  • Supporting blood donation and inviting our workforce and their families to join the Australia Post Lifeblood Team.
  • Looking for opportunities to enable workforce volunteering.
*Workplace Giving is open to all Australia Post Group employees with an employee number. Gift matching is up to $200 per employee per annum.
