We celebrate individual differences and have a comprehensive inclusion and diversity policy that sets goals across gender, ethnicity and age. Flexible work practices and employment policies that encourage diversity, help reduce bias and ensure we are an inclusive and progressive organisation.
We know a lot about ourselves; our team of almost 60 has a roughly equal gender mix, an average age of almost 39 and has been working for Goodman for more than six years.
We’ve committed to being more representative and have partnered with Champions for Change and Diversity Works to help us on the journey. We’ve set clear objectives for 2023 and these are summarised in the below table.
The table below shows gender diversity. Of the 65 employees and directors included, 44.6% are female and 55.4% are male. The average employee has been with Goodman for 6.3 years and is 38.6 years old. It is a team that includes 10 different ethnicities and has speakers of nine languages.
To empower our people and enable them to achieve great things we have a wellbeing programme focused on their health and happiness. These initiatives include, annual flu vaccines and skin checks, cooking for a cause, run & walk events at Highbrook Business Park, Steptember fundraising and touch rugby at Victoria Park. Through the Employee Assistance Programme staff also have access to additional workplace support any time they need it.
Goodman provides regular training and education opportunities for our team members and encourage participation in our industry with an annual scholarship to a promising student. This year’s recipient is Jordan Parratt, a fifth-year property and law honours student of the University of Auckland. Jordan was inspired to pursue a career in property after participating in international Real Estate Competitions held in Manhattan and Sydney.
