Stockland came into being in 1952 when Ervin Graf, a young Hungarian immigrant, built a housing estate on a former poultry farm in Sefton, NSW. Nowadays, Stockland is Australia's largest diversified property group with a real estate portfolio estimated to be worth $15.8 billion. Headquartered in Sydney, the company owns, develops and manages shopping centres, business parks, offices, retirement villages and residential communities throughout Australia with a vision to "create a better way to live".
Stockland focuses on four key values: community, accountability, respect and excellence (CARE).
Over the last 70 years, the company has developed a well-earned relationship for behaving ethically towards its customers and staff. Our employee engagement results tell us that people feel proud to work at Stockland and believe strongly in its vision and values; enjoying the collaborative and supportive environment and rating senior leadership highly.
Recognised as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), Stockland believes that an inclusive workplace facilitates greater diversity of thought, more informed decision-making and better business outcomes. Stockland has Employee Advocacy Groups which focus on increasing the feeling of inclusion for all of its people, with a specific focus on gender, LGBTI+, cultural background and disability, as well as broader advocacy groups which endeavor to further embed flexibility and wellbeing into the way Stockland does business.
Stockland encourages all employees to do 'One Simple thing' to integrate flexibility, wellbeing and work-life quality into how they work. As the world transitions to greater degrees of hybrid work, Stockland has adopted a 'Hub & Home' model to give teams further flexibility to consider where, when and how they perform their work.
Stockland believes that it has both the opportunity and the responsibility to create the right balance of social, environmental and economic conditions for its communities, customers and investors.
The company's charitable trust – the Stockland CARE Foundation – delivers infrastructure and initiatives that improve the wellbeing of communities residing in and around the properties it owns. The Foundation also coordinates active workplace giving and volunteering programs.
