Diversity and Inclusion
It is our belief that every person has the right to better health and we work hard to ensure we deliver this to the community. We also recognise that the health market is changing, and along with it, the expectations of our people, our customers, our shareholders and our communities. Supporting diversity and inclusion at Medibank is part of our DNA, and helps us to serve our customer better and be more competitive.
At Medibank, we want to be known for having a diverse workforce and for valuing the difference.
We recognise that we have a unique mix of commercial, clinical and customer facing employees from a diverse range of backgrounds. Each employee represents different life experiences, skills, abilities, gender, age, ethnicity, religious and cultural background, family status and sexual orientation. We are all different, and we know these differences create organisational benefits.
Bring your whole self to work, where we can be better together.
A career with Medibank will connect you with more. More possibilities. More prospects. And more time to connect with the things you enjoy.
If you are a talented individual, a career at Medibank will suit you better, because you will be coming together with a group of like-minded people who will help you to progress and achieve more.
We pride ourselves on our diverse workforce and for valuing the range of backgrounds that represent our people through gender, age, LGBTI, ethnicity, religious and cultural backgrounds, family status and flexibility.
Our Graduate Program is a structured 18 month program offering 3 x 6-month rotations. We welcome innovative thinking; we support career aspirations; and we recognise and invest in the development of strong leaders. We offer a range of career development opportunities – with tools + resources + programs for you to progress your career. Medibank rewards the hard work and contribution of employees in the course of their jobs through incentive schemes, recognition and reward programs, community fund activities and access to training and development.
Our performance program provides employees with an opportunity to set performance goals that contribute to the broader Medibank strategy and their own development.
We develop our people through on-the-job experiences, coaching and mentoring, and volunteering opportunities. These opportunities encourage employees to donate time and resources to not-for-profit organisations and causes that are truly close to their hearts.
We are committed to cultivating a safe and inclusive workplace for LGBTI employees to ensure that people feel safe regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We actively support the LGBTI community both inside and outside of Medibank.
Medibank is committed to supporting and advocating for LGBTI employees, including:
- Our public support for Australian Marriage Equality
- Our official partnership with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras
- Our participation in the Australian Workplace Equality Index for LGBTI Inclusion
- Membership with Pride in Diversity
