Workplace

Tabcorp’s goal is to be the best place to work and to provide our employees with a rewarding and safe working environment.

We are committed to fostering an inclusive culture that reflects a diverse workplace, where team members openly share their unique perspectives, challenge the status quo and contribute their experience to achieve the best possible business outcome. The main areas of focus for Tabcorp in the workplace are inclusion and diversity, culture, employee engagement, learning and development, recognition, and health, safety and wellbeing.

Diversity and Gender Equality

Since establishing a Diversity Council in 2012, Tabcorp has introduced a number of initiatives, including 18 weeks’ paid parental leave for primary carers and market-leading paid secondary carer’s leave of six weeks; a Women’s Mentoring Program, which more than 150 women have participated in; flexi leave day entitlements; and a commitment to increasing the representation of women in our senior leadership group.

In February 2019, Tabcorp received the Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation by the Federal Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA). This was the fourth consecutive year that Tabcorp was awarded this citation, and was particularly significant as it was based for the first time on the combined Tabcorp and Tatts business.

Women’s Mentoring Program

In February 2018, 29 women from varied backgrounds within the racing industry took part in the Women’s Mentoring Program. This was the sixth time that Tabcorp has run the program, and in recognising a broader commitment to engaging, growing and retaining women throughout the racing industry, Tabcorp was delighted to partner with Racing Victoria to offer the expanded program.
