Compass Group Australia is proud to announce we have officially achieved Bronze Tier Status in the Pride In Diversity ‘Australian Workplace Equality Index’ (AWEI).
This international benchmarking is set with the intention of advancing LGBTQ+ workplace inclusion practice within Australia and aligning it with any new work being done internationally to ensure that Australian organisations continue to meet global standards of best practice.
Compass Group Australia is a workplace for everyone, where our people can bring their whole selves to work and feel safe to openly share who they are. In 2020, Pride was introduced as a key pillar within our diversity and inclusion strategy. Compass Group Australia became members of ‘Pride In Diversity’ and we formed our ‘PRIDE In Compass’ employee-based working group.
‘PRIDE In Compass’ works with our LGBTQ+ identifying team members and those who work alongside them to influence our long-term strategy of inclusion to serve a better future for our people and the communities we serve.
While we acknowledge we are only at the start of our PRIDE journey, this award recognises our advocacy, support and contribution to LGBTQ+ inclusion within our workplace.
