Sydney, Australia – February 18, 2021 – For the second consecutive year, ORIX Australia Corporation Limited (ORIX) has been recognised as a leader in human resources, being named on the latest HRD Innovative HR Team 2021 List.
The prestigious list, published by The Human Resources Director Publication, acknowledges Australian businesses that are leading in change and innovation, especially when it comes to gender diversity.
Commenting on the award, General Manager – People and Culture at ORIX Australia, Jill Edwards, said the team is delighted to have won the award, which showcases ORIX’s commitment to a diverse and inclusive culture.
“We have a commitment to continually invest in our leaders. So it is a credit to ORIX, and our People and Culture team, to be awarded again for the work we are doing. We have an ongoing program of initiatives to ensure we attract, retain and develop great talent and this accolade shows our efforts are recognised,” said Ms Edwards.
“Importantly, gender equality is a priority for the business and we aim to drive change both across the business but also within the broader community,” she said.
In the past year, ORIX has been especially proud of three cornerstones of its HR strategy:
- Our new Leadership Development Program and Skip Level Meeting initiative contributes to increasing the capability of our leaders and offering career development opportunities that further supports our talent strategy, while also helping to drive cultural change.
- The Macquarie Park/North Ryde D&I Network Group’s virtual event, Gaining Ground Together: Empowering Tomorrow’s Leaders Today brought together senior leaders from within ORIX and across the business community to explore positive ways to achieve gender equality. Our associated LinkedIn Group, the Gender Balance Community group, has subsequently provided a forum where members can engage in healthy dialogue, share insights, collaborate and build a meaningful network.
- In July 2020, we also launched an intuitive, cloud-based HRIS system that eliminates paper-based processes and gives the management team better insights into our workforce. This technology also helps ORIX to comply with local regulations and improve the HR team’s productivity levels by eradicating labour-intensive processes.
