At Teachers Mutual Bank, our staff also come first!
||Teachers Mutual Bank has for the fifth time been named an Employer of Choice for Women by the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA). We are one of only 125 organisations across Australia to be awarded the 2012 citation. We offer career opportunities for women of all ages and in employment types ranging from Traineeships to Executive Management. We also provide paid maternity leave, flexible working hours including part-time and job-share arrangements and support and encourage our female staff to attend leadership courses amongst other training. |
Teachers Mutual Bank was a joint winner of the Frontier Software Award for Employer of Choice (fewer than 1,000 employees) at the 2008 Australian Human Resources Awards and finalists in 2011. We were recognised for a unique people focused culture that emphasises personal growth, learning and caring for others. These prestigious awards showcase and commend the outstanding work of organisations across Australia who lead the way in terms of best practice Human Resources programs and initiatives for their staff.
||Teachers Mutual Bank were a finalist in the 2009 HR Leadership Awards in the 'Best Health and Wellbeing Strategy' category. In addition to ongoing initiatives such as massages, workplace fruit, flu shots, Health Works newsletters and ergonomic assessments, some of our other initiatives include running Boxercise and Pilates classes, sponsoring staff sporting teams, providing an annual 'Well Being Calendar' and running an annual OH&S awareness day. |
||We received a High Commendation in the 2008 Hewitt Best Employers in Australia and New Zealand Study. The High Commendation means we are one of the top nine employers in the country under Hewitt’s criteria, and are the only financial services organisation among that group. The research revealed that we have a staff engagement score of 86%, well above the average of 54%. Employee engagement is defined as ‘higher numbers within the organisation who consistently speak positively about their organisation, who can’t imagine working anywhere else, and who willingly exert extra effort on its behalf’.|
