Growing the number of women in leadership roles

Officeworks believes that balanced leadership makes good business sense and delivers better business outcomes.  This is achieved from the diversity of thinking and insight brought by both men and women. 

Officeworks set a goal to achieve 40 per cent female representation in leadership across all levels of the business by 30 June 2018.

Through focused recruitment practices and targeted career development pathways for early in-career female team members, a result of 41.2 per cent of female leadership representation was achieved, up from 37.4 per cent as at 30 June 2017.

Officeworks aims to reach 46 per cent female leadership representation by 30 June 2019 through a continued focus on recruitment initiatives, career development and progression as well as retention and other workplace strategies such as flexibility.
