Industry makes inclusive workplace list
MetLife has made it to the 2023/24 list of inclusive employers and other insurance-related businesses included in the list are CHU Underwriting Agencies, Sedgwick and actuarial firm Finity Consulting.
Diversity Council Australia (DCA) compiles the annual list based on a survey of participating employers. To make the list, employers must prove their commitment to diversity and inclusion by having employees complete an in-depth survey to map the state of inclusion in their workplace – and produce results that exceed national benchmarks on a series of key measures.
“We know that inclusion has significant benefits for both employers and employees,” DCA CEO Lisa Annese said.
“It’s an opportunity for workplaces to show their commitment to inclusion, reflect on their achievements and identify ways to do even better.”
MetLife says it is proud to be the only life insurer on the list.
“It reflects what we have done to ensure our people are able to bring their authentic selves to work, and that they know they will be accepted and supported,” MetLife Australia CEO Richard Nunn said.
“Our people are the backbone of our business and our diverse customers rely on them every day – this is why this work is so important to us.”
