Diversity and Inclusion

We set the bar high when valuing difference

We’re proud of our diverse and inclusive culture and we believe it’s one of our key competitive advantages and contributes to our ongoing success.

Through creating gender balanced and diverse leadership and teams, and a truly inclusive working environment, we are building an agile, high-performing organisation, which actively leverages diversity for the benefit of our people, our customers and the overall success of the business. Everyone belongs and is welcome at Smartgroup.

We are committed to ensuring all decisions, whether it be from hiring someone to salary reviews and performance, are based on merit & competency and we are proud to have a robust framework in place to help make this happen.


Smartgroup is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer and recognised as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA). Diversity and inclusion sit at the heart of our values and is central to our vision to be Australia’s most people-centric, customer-focussed and innovative employee management services company.

We strive to ensure that our workforce reflects the diversity of our customers and markets, and harnesses the unique talents, perspectives and experiences of all our team members.

  • Ensuring fairness in remuneration and employment practices 


2020/21 Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) Report


Each year, organisations around Australia complete a report for the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA), the government agency tasked with improving gender equality in the workplace.

Smartgroup enthusiastically works on this comprehensive report, and for more than just compliance to the legislation - we see it as a great opportunity to review our practices and to measure our improvements year on year.

The report is structured to capture information on the breakdown of gender in roles, promotions, training, salary comparisons for like for like roles, access to programs such as Parental Leave and Flexible Working, as well as what policies and strategies we have in place to improve gender equality in our workplace. We are proud of our results this year. Click here to read our 2020/21 WGEA Report.

We value diversity

Our culture thrives on mutual respect, teamwork and diversity of thought in the workplace among people who are diverse in work background, experience, education, age, gender, race, national origin, physical abilities, religious belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other real and perceived differences. We value individuals for who they are and the way we work is designed to support our team and bring out their best.
