Diversity & Inclusion
Saracen strives for a diverse and inclusive workplace. We understand that different backgrounds and perspectives bring new ways of thinking and contribute to our successes.
It is important to us to attract and retain talented employees and to help our employees reach their full potential.
We are committed to creating a safe and comfortable working environment for all of our employees and will continue to seek new ways to implement new initiatives to further develop and improve our culture.
The company continues to promote a workplace culture that embraces diversity, and our submission to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency ("WGEA") in May 2018 recorded a female participation rate of 15.6%, a 13% increase from the 2017 WGEA submission and exceeding the targets set last year. The positive trend has continued, and as at 30 June 2018, Saracen had a female participation rate of 16.5% in comparison to the industry average of 15.9%.
Through FY2019, there will be continued focus on maintaining the gains made in female participation as well as extending our diversity focus to include the measurement of other diversity elements including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and regional employment.
