Hollard formalised its commitment to diversity and inclusion in 2015. We proudly became a member of the Diversity Council of Australia, and developed a three-year roadmap targeting accessibility, gender, equality, LGBTI and mental health, along with pay equity, flexible work arrangements, domestic family violence and unconscious bias. Hollard is determined to enable our staff (whom we affectionately call our "Hollardites") to bring their whole selves to work, to perform at their best.

Gender Equality

Hollard is committed to advancing women in the workplace, including those in leadership positions. We are striving to achieve gender equality within leadership by 2023. Currently, half of both Hollard's Board and Group CEO's direct reports are women. Also, in 2018 more than 60% of Hollardites enjoyed some level of a flexible work arrangement, allowing them to have a work environment that works best for the needs of both the business and themselves. We have also partnered with White Ribbon Australia and are working towards White Ribbon accreditation, to create a safer and more respectful work environment for women, along with providing leading practice avenues of support for women impacted by domestic violence.

LGBTI

Hollard is committed to supporting Hollardites of diverse sex, sexuality and gender. We have partnered with Pride in Diversity and are currently working towards submitting our first Australian Workplace Equality Index. All our policies and benefits are inclusive of LGBTI partners and families, including the implementation of policies and guidelines for transgender people pre, mid and post transition. Our Allies Network was launched in August 2018.
