Diversity is great with focus on minority communities & high levels of respect exists across all types. Freedom to be yourself.
Coles say a lot about diversity but I don't see it translated very well - especially in relation to gender
Ally program for LGBT, child care programs during school holidays, committed to gender balance.
They always strive for equality in all ways
We have a great culture celebrating diversity and inclusion.
There are clear metrics identified by management here to help boost gender equality within management positions. Even in a digital field that doesn't have a high female participation rate, I have seen many female leaders in Tech teams. On LGBTQ inclusion, an ally program supporting team members has been set up and supported from an Exec level too.
Commitment to diversity is something that is seemingly always on the agenda - as it should be. Whether it be in recruitment, progression, retention, child care and maternity.
LGBT, Indigenous employment, women in leadership. Retention is high but always room for improvement.
Programs specifically designed to promote diversity. Huge focus at the moment
Coles recognises, celebrates and ensures that all "minorities" are acknowledged, encouraged and supported.
Parents room, working from home, flexible hours, access with lifts and ramps, standing desk options, prayer rooms etc.
I believe we have market leading policies in this space
Coles is the biggest employer of indigenous Australians nationwide. It is also heavily involved in inclusion and diversity, celebrating International Women's/Men's Day, R U OK? Day and the LGBTQI community.
The company is very good with educating team members on diversity with LGBTQ allies having training, as well as indigenous recognition at meetings among other things.
The company respects all employees with respect to diversity. Majority of staff wear stickies on their name badges to highlight they support those differing backgrounds, sexuality etc. In regards to child care and maternity leave coles is very considerate. during school holidays the company offers a holiday program to aide staff. They also promote flexible working arrangements so parents can support their children.
