Diversity and inclusion

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


In 2017, women represented 37.7 per cent of executive managers and 53.6 percent of postal managers. Compared to 2016, this was up from 35.4 per cent and 37.5 per cent respectively.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

We’ve achieved our largest ever Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce since 1994, with over 706 employees who identify as Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander or both at 30 June 2017.


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 2017, our multicultural workforce was made up of 7,829 employees (22.4 per cent) from 163 different nations, speaking over 65 languages.

People with a disability

We employed 1,674 people with a disability at 30 June 2017. This represents 4.8 per cent of our total workforce.


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.

Volunteering and workplace giving

We encourage our employees to contribute to the concerns and causes that are important to them through our Workplace Giving and Volunteering programs.
