Our customers come from vibrant and unique communities across Australia. They live in our communities and retirement villages, shop in our retail centres, work in our buildings and invest in our company. To reflect our diverse customer needs, we need employees with different backgrounds and experiences.
Stockland is committed to creating a diverse workforce by providing equal opportunity in all aspects of employment including recruitment, training, promotion and remuneration. We offer a workplace environment where everyone can contribute authentically and holistically. It is also important to us to ensure flexibility is not just supported, it is encouraged.
Embracing a diverse workforce is critical for our business to attract and retain the most talented people. Building a more inclusive workplace facilitates greater diversity of thought, more informed decision making and ultimately better business outcomes.

As Australia's largest diversified property group, Stockland is well placed to contribute to making meaningful change in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities. The launch of Stockland's first Reconciliation Action Plan is an important step in our efforts to better embrace and celebrate a vision of a nation which values Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' heritages, culture, and strengthen our relationships with Australia's first peoples.
