Nous celebrates the diversity of our workforce. We celebrate the benefits this brings to Nousers’ experiences and in facilitating high performance and creativity for our clients – whether it be diversity in gender, sexual orientation, age, cultural background, national origin, disability, faith, education, family structures, socio-economic background, neurodiversity and more.
We acknowledge that people have different experiences, and some people navigate (often unseen) barriers, unconscious bias and intersectional experiences. Equity, diversity and inclusion is essential to a just and equitable society and to the experience and performance of individuals at Nous and all workplaces.
Our goal for Nous to be an inclusive, equitable workplace that celebrates the diversity and value of all Nousers and meets the diverse needs of our clients. We have a strong foundation to our continuing EDI efforts and we continue to challenge all Nousers to contribute to our EDI journey as an organisation.
We believe that a clear and strong focus on diversity and inclusion delivers the best outcomes for our clients and ensures the growth and wellbeing of our people. We see an inclusive workforce, as critical to realising our purpose.
At Nous our people come from a diversity of backgrounds and bring a diversity of perspectives. We are proud to have been recognised as an Inclusive Employer by Diversity Council Australia, which compared diversity at Nous to diversity across the Australian workforce.
Creating a diverse and balanced workforce has been ingrained in Nous’ culture and values since the business was founded in 1999. As we’ve grown, our leadership gender ratio has stayed close to even and we are actively committed to maintaining this through our inclusive culture, gender-neutral policies and flexible work practices.
Our employee networks are grassroots groups, led by employees, created when Nousers get together with a desire to connect and collaborate.
Nous’ vision for reconciliation is for all Australians to have the same opportunities for social, economic and cultural prosperity, and a standard of living that is not compromised by their identity. This requires closing the gap between the experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.
Through our Indigenous Employment Strategy we are increasing the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people we work with. More Indigenous representation will lead to better outcomes for our clients and their communities.
