ANZ named Women’s Employer of the Year at Insurance Industry Awards
ANZ has received the Women’s Employer of the Year award at the sixth Annual New Zealand Insurance Industry Awards.
The judging panel praised ANZ (including ANZ’s insurance company OnePath Life) for demonstrating exemplary commitment to supporting women in both policy and practice. ANZ Managing Director of Wealth Craig Mulholland said: “The judges were impressed by the number of women we have in our insurance business, our commitment to equal pay and ANZ’s range of policies to support women’s professional development.”
The award recognises organisations that have demonstrated a commitment and taken positive steps to improve gender equality and diversity across their organisation and the wider industry.
The criteria include remuneration policies, frameworks and programmes to support career progression and professional development for women, gender composition, parental leave and return to work programmes available to females and males.
“With more than 9,300 employees, we are one of New Zealand’s largest companies, so we feel it is our duty to lead by example and foster the most diverse workforce in the region,” Mr Mulholland said.
“As such, the business has put in a tremendous effort to build an environment where every employee is given every opportunity to learn or progress, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, profession, or other difference.
“This award acknowledges that we’re well on track to achieving this goal and that we’re well-placed to become an employer of choice, and to use our diversity and people empowerment as a point of competitive advantage in the industry.”
The New Zealand Insurance Industry Awards are organised by the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIF).
It is the leading membership, education, training and professional development organisation for the insurance and finance industry in the Asia-Pacific region.
