Diversity & Inclusion Policy

Diversity & Inclusion Policy

Fisher Leadership is committed to diversity and inclusion in its workplace. It is our policy to treat our team of employees and associates, as well as our community of clients, candidates, and suppliers (both current and prospective), fairly and equally regardless of their gender, race, age, family or carers responsibilities, sexual preference or other visible and invisible differences.  Fisher Leadership commits internally and externally to drive inclusion via both Social and Cognitive diversity for today and tomorrow.

Fisher Leadership will not tolerate discrimination, harassment, bullying or victimisation in its workplace.

Recruitment & Selection

Every person will be given a fair and equitable chance to compete for appointment, promotion, or transfer, and to pursue their career as effectively as others.

Employment decisions relating to appointment, promotion and career development will be determined according to individual merit, competence, and alignment to organisational values.

Career & Personal Development

Fisher Leadership supports growth and personal development for employees to develop their career and reach their full potential. Training and development opportunities will be based on performance and potential.

Flexible Work

Fisher Leadership is committed to providing flexible working arrangements; to provide flexibility in meeting business needs; and to assist team members in managing their work and personal responsibilities. In line with the policy we encourage team members to have mutual respect for timelines and schedules.

Culture of Sustainability

Fisher leadership is focused on creating a sustainable and inclusive workplace for our team of employees and associates and the community within which we operate. This includes the physical and mental health and wellbeing of people, a clear code of conduct and a culture of mutual respect.

This policy is in conjunction with the Discrimination, Harassment and Affirmative Action policies under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010.
