BRG’s 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Report

BRG’s 2021 Diversity and Inclusion Report

24 February 2021 – As International Women’s Day fast approaches, it’s timely that BRG has released its 2021 Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Report, following a number of reviews undertaken.

Reviews included:

  • ‘Pay Equity Audit’, encompassing the representation of women and men across the group, and pay relative to job level to seek any disparity within bands
  • ‘Gender Representation’, auditing the representation of men and women within all job levels to seek any under representation
  • ‘Ethnicity Review’, reviewing the ethnic diversity across the workforce

Pleasingly, BRG identified no pay disparity on the basis of gender, or under representation of women within the general business. Notably, there was a slight under representation of women within Technical Specialist fields now being addressed through recruitment processes.

As a LGBTQIA inclusive​ workplace committed to equal pay, equal rights, and equal opportunity, other key findings included:

 

  • 50/50 gender split in the Senior Leadership Team
  • Ratio across workforce is 56% female, 44% male
  • There is a higher percentage of women people managers (62% female, 38% male)
  • There is a higher percentage of male Heads of Team (40% female, 60% male)
  • 36% of workforce are non-Australian ethnicity​, with 11 ethnicities represented

BRG’s diversity and inclusion principles are central to how BRG does business, and in line with its ESG commitment to the UN’s Good Life Goals (GLG), specifically GLG 10 – Reduce Inequality. BRG’s Diversity and Inclusion Report showcases BRG’s deep commitment to fostering a workplace free from discrimination, that embraces diversity, inclusion, and equality.

Recognising that businesses can be platforms for social change, BRG’s purpose in shifting the way people experience life begins from Day 1 in the workplace. While currently undergoing a substantial period of growth, with over 45% of BRG employees joining in the past year, all new employees undergo a comprehensive onboarding process underpinned by BRG’s diversity and inclusion framework.

While this onboarding process is currently delivered remotely as BRG relinquished its office space in March 2020, BRG looks forward to welcoming future newcomers into a bespoke designed collaborative workspace in Q4 of 2021.

Transparent in its approach, BRG hopes to lead and inspire others in creating inclusive workplaces which value, respect, accept, and celebrate differences between people. The BRG community is encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work each and every day, safe in the knowledge they attend a supportive and caring environment where people can contribute in unique and meaningful ways.

Through actively promoting diversity, BRG hopes to increase participation and contribution of all employees, particularly through its Experiences@Work program which unites people on a regular basis.
