The diversity of our people is fundamental to Macquarie’s success. The broad range of experiences, skills and views of our people are key strengths and critical to the wide range of services we deliver to clients and understanding the communities in which we operate.
We have found our management philosophy has universal appeal amongst staff, no matter where in the world they are working. Macquarie’s long-standing management-philosophy, freedom within boundaries, encourages ownership and entrepreneurial endeavour and rewards achievement. Our goals and values support this merit-based culture: integrity, client commitment, striving for profitability, fulfilment for our people, teamwork and highest standards.
To support the organisation in achieving its diversity objectives, a Workforce Diversity Policy has been developed which has been endorsed by Macquarie’s Board and Executive Committee. Its aim is to publicly define Macquarie’s workforce diversity commitment and the structures in place to ensure it is realised. Download a summary of the policy.
Macquarie has a range of programs, benefits and activities aimed at supporting our employees. One of these is Women@Macquarie a Group-wide initiative to support female staff in their development of successful, fulfilling and self-directed careers at Macquarie.
