Compass Group Australia is committed to ensuring all employees are able to bring their whole selves to work, to feel safe and feel supported as we continue to develop a dynamic and diverse workforce reflective of the communities that we serve.
In early 2020 Compass Group Australia took the steps to include Pride as a key pillar within our diversity and inclusion strategy. We became a member of Pride in Diversity who are Australia’s first and only national not-for-profit employer support program for all aspects of LGBTQ workplace inclusion. A social inclusion initiative of ACON, Pride in Diversity are specialists in HR, organisational change and workplace diversity dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ people by reducing exclusion, invisibility, homophobia and stigma in the workplace.
Our focus is understanding our LGBTQ+ people and their experiences in our workplace which provides influence on our long-term strategy. Through the LGBTQ+ awareness and training program delivered by Pride in Diversity, Compass Group Australia will continue to increase LGBTQ awareness in our broader teams and across all layers of our business and through this build a strong Allies network.
