Workplace Diversity

APRA takes a pro-active and innovative approach in creating a flexible and inclusive employment environment that values and utilises the contribution of people of different backgrounds, experiences, perspectives and abilities. We call this our Workplace Diversity Strategy.

Work-life balance / Flexible working arrangements

Work-Life Balance are three words, which many companies talk about, but are ones that APRA takes very seriously. In fact, in 2007 APRA was voted among the top 17 Australian workplaces based on its commitment to work-life balance.

We recognise that work is just one element of our employee's lives, so offer a range of options to help make juggling work, home, family and other personal commitments easier for our staff. Flexible work arrangements available to staff include:

  • Coreless variable hours
  • Compressed work week option
  • Purchased additional leave option
  • Part-time work
  • Job sharing
  • Make up time
  • Flexible use of long service leave
  • Telecommuting
  • Variable work year
  • Family leave/sabbaticals

Mature Age Workers Initiatives

APRA is committed to implementing measures to retain the skills, expertise and corporate knowledge of staff approaching retirement age. Some of our initiatives to achieve this are:

  • Transition to Retirement Initiative – unlimited ability to salary sacrifice superannuation
  • Health checks for all staff aged over 50
  • Flexible work arrangements
  • Pre-retirement leave e.g. to attend retirement planning seminar

Family Friendly Benefits

  • 14 weeks paid maternity leave
  • 2 week paid partner’s leave

  • Prayer Room (Sydney office)
  • Keep in Touch Program for women on maternity leave
  • Provision of Parental Leave Kit
