Diversity at Linfox

Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.

Our two CEOs are both women, and I haven't seen any evidence of discrimination.

Graduate, Port Augusta
Being a female, I have found this company to take a strong interest in female leaders. With every role that I have tackled so far, I have found all of my Managers/Leaders (mainly male) to be more than empowering. From what I have seen, the company employs and extremely diverse work force. I cannot speak of retention, child care and maternity leave as I have not yet experienced that with any employee yet. However, as mentioned above, the company are very empowering to move women up into senior positions, just as much as men.
