Why does diversity and inclusion matter?

"Diversity in our workplaces makes compelling business sense."

Good for Individuals & Teams

Diverse and inclusive teams have higher levels of engagement and productivity

Good for the Industry

CEOs of 21 of Australia’s largest property companies have joined the Male Champions of Change to increase opportunities for diverse talent

Good for Companies

Real Estate Investment Trusts with at least one woman on their board produce up to 3.6% higher annual shareholder returns

Good for the Economy

Full participation and utilisation of diverse talent would add billions to the Australian economy

But, when it comes to leveraging diversity as a source of innovation, performance and competitive advantage, the Property Industry in Australia is falling behind other sectors.

"I had the pleasure of working closely with Symmetra and witnessed the substantial impact they are having in training many major corporations of the strategic and business benefits of promoting a more inclusive and diverse workforce. The resultant diversity of thinking, together with a more positive, inclusive and engaging culture is a significant differentiating factor in improving employee engagement, business productivity and performance. These benefits lead to enhanced enterprise value and hence superior total shareholder returns."

David Southon, Former Joint Managing Director of Charter Hall Group

We chose to partner with Symmetra because of their demonstrated commercial insights and ability to customise programs to support the delivery of education for our Leaders in the context of our business goals.
