MetLife only life insurer declared inclusive by Diversity Council Australia

MetLife Australia has been listed as an inclusive workplace on Diversity Council Australia’s (DCA) Inclusion@Work Index 2021.

Participating for the first time in 2021, MetLife is the only life insurance company to be listed in the Index this year, reflecting the work the organisation has undertaken to increase diversity and ensure an inclusive experience for all employees.

Run bi-annually, the DCA’s Inclusion@Work Index enables organisations to track the state of diversity and inclusion of their workforce and be benchmarked against leading Australian employers.

Commenting on the announcement, Richard Nunn, MetLife Australia CEO, said:

“This recognition by DCA is testament to our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion at MetLife. We’re thrilled to be listed among some of Australia’s leading and most progressive workplaces. This recognition validates the real and meaningful steps we’ve taken to enable our people to bring their whole selves to work and really thrive. We know there is more to be done and we’ll use the insights from the Inclusion@Work Index to continue to build MetLife into a leading workplace and life insurer.”

Major initiatives delivered by MetLife recently include:

  • Launching inclusive spaces such as gender inclusive bathrooms, parents’ room and contemplation room
  • Becoming a member of Diversity Council Australia and promoting employee access to events and resources
  • Reshaping recruitment to make processes and policies gender-neutral
  • Leveraging major dates on the diversity and inclusion calendar including International Women’s Day and Wear It Purple Day.

The Inclusion@Work Index surveys staff across six key areas of workplace inclusion: Awareness; Engagement; Inclusive Organisation; Inclusive Leadership; Inclusive Team; and Exclusion.

MetLife will use the results of the survey to refine the company’s Diversity Equity & Inclusion Strategy going forward to continue to build a more diverse workforce, and an equitable and inclusive workplace.
