Commonwealth Bank

Diversity naturally exists at the Commonwealth Bank, with nearly 52,000 employees in over 1,000 locations across the world.  Commonwealth Bank’s vision is to excel at securing and enhancing the financial wellbeing of people, businesses and communities. Providing exceptional service to customers is at the centre of everything Commonwealth Bank does to deliver its vision.

Given Commonwealth Bank banks four out of every ten Australian banking customers who were born overseas, the Bank recognises the imperative to mirror Australia’s diversity and to develop strategies that build inclusive behaviour. This encourages and leverages the unique contributions of employees – 40 per cent of whom identify with a foreign culture – to meet the needs of diverse communities. Commonwealth Bank’s ambition is that its leaders reflect the diversity in the community with diverse thinking and perspectives. The Bank’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is underpinned by a workplace environment that values and respects the individuality and cultural identity of every customer and employee.

“Having led large teams spanning over 15 years as a Senior Executive at one of Australia's largest Corporates, I understand the benefits of a culturally diverse workforce that reflects our Multicultural Community. A Taste of Harmony has proven to be a very valuable initiative in building cultural cohesion in my teams and with our customers. I aspire to be a role model in our community and Corporate Australia, leading initiatives that promote an inclusive community and workplace where our people can bring all of themselves to work and are proud of their cultural heritage. - In supporting Australia's Multiculturalism we can also become a role model for other nations"
