Allianz Australia named Employer of Choice for Gender Equality for 10th Consecutive Year

25 February 2019

Allianz Australia has been awarded the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality Citation by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) for the tenth consecutive year.

Allianz was recognised for key programs and initiatives across career development, gender pay equity, gender-balanced and inclusive recruitment practices, parental leave provisions, and flexible work opportunities for both women and men.

“Allianz Australia is pleased to be recognised as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality”, said Richard Feledy, Allianz Australia Managing Director. “I am very proud to lead an organisation that makes gender equity and inclusive work practices a top business priority as we remain committed to making investments that provide women and men with opportunities to balance their work and personal lives.”

With an increased focus on gender equity in talent acquisition and development, Allianz is on track to reach its target of 40% women in leadership positions by 2020. Our like-for-like gender pay gap is less than 1% and we are committed to ensuring that our people get paid fairly for the contribution they make irrespective of gender, background, where they work or what roles they perform.

Commenting on this, Richard noted how important it is to continue to embed gender equity into all business practices.

“Whether we are talking about the fair representation of women and men across the organisation, or ensuring equal pay for equal contribution, embracing diversity drives entrepreneurial thinking and better business results. We will ensure that gender equity remains at the forefront of all business practices at Allianz – not just to achieve our goals, but for the benefit of our people, our customers and the community.”

The Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation is granted each year to employers with a commitment and track record in promoting gender equity in Australian workplaces.
