CHU recognised as a Family Inclusive Workplace
CHU, one of Australia’s leading strata insurance specialists, has become one of the few companies in the country to be recognised as a Family Inclusive Workplace by the Parents at Work organisation and UNICEF Australia.
Parents At Work, which provides work and family education and policy advisory services to companies, partnered with UNICEF Australia last year to improve work life wellbeing, inclusion and equity outcomes for families by introducing a set of certifiable National Work and Family Standards for employers.
CHU announced today it has joined a select number of Australian companies to be granted certification as a Family Inclusive Workplace™.
The certification follows CHU introducing in July last year a fully flexible hybrid work model open to all staff at every level. The model gives people the choice of where and when they do their best work, whether this be in the office, at home or another location or a combination.
“CHU has always worked hard to ensure our company is supportive of families and we are extremely proud to be officially recognised as a Family Inclusive Workplace,” said CHU CEO Kimberley Jonsson.
“Diversity and Inclusion is one of our three strategic pillars. This certification not only recognises that CHU has been supportive of families of every type; it’s our commitment to the ongoing improvement, measurement and management to ensure this remains an embedded part of our DNA,” she said.
“Helping our families has become even more important in recent years with the pressures of the pandemic.”
