Because we care
We value a diverse and inclusive culture and believe differences in cultural & ethnic backgrounds, gender, disability, age, and sexual orientation generate creativity, which is critical to maintaining our success. We have a number of initiatives and networks across our business to support a more diverse and inclusive environment.
We know about property and we care about people. We also believe everyone deserves to have a safe place to sleep – every night. To help make this a reality, we have formed a number of partnerships with charities who know a whole lot more about this than we do. A few things that we have been proud to achieve are:
- The Rapid Rehousing Fund we developed with Launch Housing has helped divert an average of four families a week from homelessness in the first 12 months.
- More than 31,000 people have visited www.askizzy.org.au since it was launched in January 2016 by the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Born out of 2013 Hack Day, the responsive mobile website connects people who are homeless with critical services when they need them most.
- We’ve donated more than $100k to local grassroots organisations around Australia that our people or their immediate families are involved with, through our Employee Community Grants program.
- Through our Matched Payroll Giving program, the combination of our people and REA’s donation is more than $18k to registered charities in Australia.
