At the Women's, we have developed a comprehensive program to help develop and support staff because we know that our most valuable asset is our people.
The Women’s Staff Benefits Program helps us create a positive, safe and productive work environment where staff are recognised and rewarded for the work they do. Through the Staff Benefits Program, we offer employees at the Women's a range of benefits.
The Women’s offers generous tax savings through a range of salary packaging options to full-time, part-time and casual staff. Some of the benefits available are the $9095 threshold, meal entertainment debit card, holiday accommodation and venue hire.
Employees at the Women’s are eligible to receive a range of benefits through various financial institutions. The benefits offered are discounts on the full range of banking products, including home and personal loans, insurance, credit and debit cards, term deposits, financial planning, and everyday banking.
A number of discounts are available to staff for on telephone and computer products, and services through arrangements with corporate partners. Discounts are also available through the onsite retail precinct.
Each year we host a 2 day staff benefits expo which brings our providers on site for them to promote to our staff the latest range of benefits on offer. The feedback that we have from this event is that not only does this show how we value the staff with the benefits we provide but it is also a fun way to learn what the providers can offer.
The Employee Assistance Program is available to all staff at the Women’s. This service provides free, confidential counselling and assistance to staff for personal and work-related issues. The service is independent, and can be accessed by staff without a referral from management.
