To successfully achieve our purpose – to fight for fair, just and safe markets for consumers – CHOICE wants our staff to be more representative of all Australian consumers so we are able to better understand and respond to the needs of Australian consumers.
A major goal in our 2021–24 Strategy is to be "an organisation that people want to support and work for". Part of this will be continuing to build a more diverse and inclusive team and working environment. Over the next few years CHOICE will focus on:
- The implementation of our first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
- Using flexible, inclusive recruitment and selection techniques to identify the best talent and ensure they receive support and tools to succeed
- Supporting our staff to be the best they can be through assistive technology, mental health support and progressive policies and flexible working arrangements
- Maintaining our compliance with The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) compliance reporting program, which allows us to regularly assess our salaries and policies from the perspective of gender equality and identify opportunities for improvement.
