CHU Winners of the 2019 ANZIIF Excellence in Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Award
CHU, Australia’s leading strata insurance specialist, last night won the inaugural Australian Insurance Industry Excellence in the Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Award.
“Diversity and inclusion aren’t just ‘nice to haves’ – they are critical to everything we are and do,” said CHU’S CEO Bobby Lehane
“It’s now a strategic imperative for any business with aspirations of growth and success into the future,” he said.
“The changing face of Australian communities are increasingly being reflected in Australian businesses. But progress has been too slow in many industries, including the insurance industry. This has to change,” said CHU’s Chief Customer Officer Anne-Maree Paull.
“Diversity has always been part of CHU’s DNA and contributed to our success. However, in recent years we made the decision to focus on it as a strategic imperative. We believe it’s absolutely critical to our strategic success over the next 5 to 10 years.”
“On behalf of the CHU Leadership Team I would like thank all the people at CHU who have wholeheartedly walked and continue to walk CHU’s diversity and inclusion path. It’s exciting times.”
Some CHU statistics:
- CHU’s Leadership Team has a 50/50 gender split, with ages spanning from 30’s to 60’s.
- Females represent 55% of all leaders.
- The gender split across the company stands at 64% female and 36% male. This has been consistent over a number of years.
