Employer of choice for gender equality

In 2015, Great Southern Bank received the Workplace Gender Equality Agency's Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation for the second year in a row. Great Southern Bank was among only 90 organisations to receive the citation for 2015. The citation recognises Great Southern Bank's ongoing commitment and effort to building a diverse and equitable workplace which values cultural differences and promotes gender equality.  Great Southern Bank has been recognised as an Employer of Choice for Women for 8 consecutive years.

CEO Rob Goudswaard is also a WGEA Pay Equity Ambassador, which reinforces Great Southern Bank's commitment to remove gender bias in all talent management systems. This continues Great Southern Bank's support of WGEA's pay equity campaign, following our involvement in the Daughter Water campaign during 2014.

GBA Diversity Council

The Great Southern Bank Diversity Council is chaired by our CEO Paul Lewis and consists of representatives from across Great Southern Bank. The Council helps to develop strategies and sponsor initiatives that promote an inclusive, innovative and collaborative workplace that allows people to shine.

In 2012, the Australian Workplace Gender Equality Act expanded the focus from equal opportunity for women to improving gender equality in the workplace (i.e. women and men being offered the same opportunities in the workplace). Great Southern Bank's Diversity Council has also embraced this expanded focus.

What Great Southern Bank will deliver

With key input from our Diversity Council, Great Southern Bank will continue working on delivering:

  • Improved gender equality in the workplace
  • Inclusive work practices
  • Workplace flexibility including consideration of family and caring responsibilities
