With our huge inventory of new, used and rental equipment, WesTrac has the right machine for the job.
In the past, Caterpillar has attributed a $20 million loss to staff not being able to bring their whole selves to work, i.e. not feeling comfortable and included. This could be because of their gender, ability, sexuality, generation or culture.
A diverse workplace is more respectful, productive, profitable and, most importantly, safe - diversity also creates a workplace we can all be proud of. Safety, Pride and Respect are 3 of our core values.
We know that education reduces ignorance – the more we educate team members about social and cultural differences, the more we become accepting of differences and accountable when we’re not.
WesTrac has established two separate Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) committees, with one based at each of the head offices in WA and NSW.
These committees support and promote four key categories associated with diversity:
These categories were identified as the most important by a company-wide survey and have been endorsed by our board.
The biggest inclusive event that the D&I committee supports and promotes each year is IWD – a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
IWD events are held yearly at our head offices in WA and NSW. At these events, speakers (internal and external) tell celebratory stories and discuss relevant issues such as gender diversity and parity. Feedback stemming from these events is then utilised internally to help make WesTrac a more diverse and inclusive workplace.
The gender pay gap in Australia is still prevalent. There remains a lot of work to be done to close it. Policy initiatives to bridge the gap include access to parental leave and flexible working arrangements, pay equity and greater female representation in leadership positions.
