Westpac NZ named top spot for women

Westpac NZ has been recognised as one of the top 50 leading companies in the world for women in a new study just released by APEC.

The study, undertaken by APEC’s Policy Partnership on Women and the Economics, identified the 7 common factors in companies that successfully increase career and economic opportunities for women.

The report commented that Westpac NZ, one of just three New Zealand companies in the list, has an impressive gender balance, which is sustained throughout the organisation.

It cited Westpac’s policies such as flexible work-styles and support for employees returning to work from maternity leave, the diversity programme and the leadership training opportunities provided through Global Women.
