ORIX Australia is thrilled to be included in the 2021 Human Resources Director Employer of Choice list.
We are always seeking ways to develop defined career pathways for our team, promote diversity and inclusion in our business and learn from feedback to become not just a better employer, but a better community leader as well.
ORIX Australia’s Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Reggie Cabal, is delighted the business has been included in the prestigious 2021 Human Resources Director Employer of Choice list, which recognises the emphasis ORIX places on supporting people to achieve their potential.
“We’re incredibly proud of the team we have built at ORIX – an engaged, dedicated and talented workforce, which supports our business success every day.”
ORIX Australia’s General Manager, People and Culture, Jill Edwards, says being included in the Employer of Choice list is a great achievement for the business.
“It recognises our ongoing focus on diversity and inclusion, learning and development, career progression, recruitment and communication. Our people are the most important part of our business. It’s important for ORIX to have an inclusive culture to ensure we attract and retain great talent. We will continue to work hard improving these aspects of our business for the benefit of all our people and for the company as a whole,” she said.
Some of the initiatives we have embarked on to become an Employer of Choice include:
- Comprehensive training and professional development
We have a three-tier learning and development program to support our team members to remain at the top of their game. It canvases leadership coaching and feedback, workshops and experiences, and tailored development opportunities.
- Well-defined career pathways
We are proud of our ‘Skip Level Meeting’ guide, which is designed to support and develop a number of our highly talented employees in the business. This tool helps leaders to have meaningful conversations with their team to support them on their career journeys. We regularly have up to 10% of our team on secondment, which helps our secondees develop great new skills they can bring back to their team.
- A genuine commitment to diversity and inclusion
After being named as a WGEA Employer of Choice in 2020 and 2021, we have continued to build on our work addressing gender imbalance among the leadership team and across the business. A key initiative in 2020 was the virtual event, Gaining Ground Together: Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders Today, which facilitated an industry-wide discussion about what we can do to keep breaking down gender stereotypes. We are committed to continuing this discussion and taking further steps to reduce the gender pay gap.
All our efforts are supported by our investment in our cloud-based HR technology, which allows us to collect the data we need to make meaningful changes in our business to support our employees.
