Tabcorp recognised as Employer of Choice for Gender Equality
21 March 2019
Tabcorp has been recognised as one of Australia’s leading promoters of gender diversity after being named an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality for the fourth consecutive year.
The citation, awarded by the Federal Government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), recognises Tabcorp’s achievements in working towards gender equality in the workplace.
This citation is particularly significant as it was based for the first time on the combined Tabcorp and Tatts businesses.
Chief People Officer, Merryl Dooley said she is extremely proud of the company’s achievements.
“Tabcorp is the only gambling company and one of just 141 Australian organisations to receive this citation,” Merryl said.
“As a combined Tabcorp and Tatts business we introduced refreshed policies in August last year which helped us make significant headway towards becoming a truly inclusive and diverse workplace. Our CEO David Attenborough continues to actively promote gender diversity and last year pledged to be a WGEA Pay Equity Ambassador.
“We’re committed to being a gender balanced organisation, where all people are welcomed and respected. When we do, we unlock our potential and become a better business and a better place to work, for all.”
The public recognition of Tabcorp’s commitment to gender diversity is a result of several initiatives Tabcorp employees have access to including:
- 18 weeks parental leave for primary carers and market-leading secondary carers leave of six weeks. Both of which can be taken flexibly, with superannuation paid up to 52 weeks;
- a Women’s Mentoring Program which more than 150 women have participated in; • a fully flexible workplace and flexi leave day entitlements; and
- a commitment to increasing the representation of women in the senior leadership group.
