Salmat continues a long history of encouraging and supporting a diverse work environment. Our diversity policy covers gender, age, ethnicity, sexual preference, disability and cultural background.
The Board’s support of gender diversity is reflected in the work of Salmat’s Diversity and Inclusion Council, which continues to develop programs under the four key banners of Ethnicity, Gender, Age and Disability.
The initiatives to encourage and support diversity are not restricted to Australia.
Salmat’s report for 2015/16 under the requirements of the Workplace Gender Equality Agency for Salmat Ltd and all subsidiary Companies saw all Companies advised as compliant with the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Act).
Salmat will continue to encourage and support women into senior positions through via the Diversity Council.
Diversity is an agenda item on every Remuneration and Compensation Committee meeting and meetings of the Company’s senior leadership team.
The Board has set four measures for reporting on gender diversity under Recommendation 1.5 of Principle 3 of the ASX Corporate Governance Principles:
* Representation of women on short lists for all advertised roles.
* Representation of women on all interview panels.
* Gender percentage on the Board.
* Gender percentage at all levels of the Company using a five level scale.
