Telstra is a leading telecommunications and technology company offering a wide range of services globally, with a focus on the Asia-Pacific region.
Telstra’s heritage is proudly Australian, but we have a longstanding international business. Today, we have around 3,000 employees based in 22 countries outside of Australia providing services to hundreds of business and government customers.
Our customers are global, our people are local and our assets are anchored in Asia. Over several decades we have established one of the largest subsea cable networks in the Asia-Pacific, supplying wholesale and enterprise customers around the world. We also provide sophisticated network application services and have growing interests in software, video delivery, online sales and e-Health.
The success of the company depends on great people – people who are talented and determined to succeed. We understand the benefits of equality and are committed to improving diversity in the workplace.
Telstra’s purpose is ‘to create a brilliant, connected future for everyone’ and we mean everyone. Our challenge and motivation have been to integrate an active and effective diversity and inclusion program across a large and complex organisation, and ensure this can be achieved in the context of measurable outcomes and results.
Our approach to gender equality at Telstra is ground breaking – it involves women and men working together to create an inclusive environment so that Telstra is a great workplace for everyone. And, we encourage all Telstra people to get involved as champions of gender equality.
Pay equity: We have conducted pay gap analysis within the annual remuneration cycle since 2007.
Brilliant Connected Women, our gender equality employee network is open to all Telstra employees around the globe, it includes mentoring and events with key executives and has a strong internal social media presence.
Gender-balanced recruitment strategy through our segmented female employment brand, as well as gender-balanced recruitment shortlists and selection panels.
For the second year running, Telstra’s efforts towards gender equality are being recognised with a prestigious Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE) citation.
