Today 20 March, marks the beginning of the annual celebration of Harmony Week in Australia, with this year’s theme being ‘Everyone Belongs’.
As an Australian business, we take immense pride in recognising and celebrating the culturally diverse people that make up our workplace. We stand by the ideals of respecting our team and their culture and believe in cultivating a sense of belonging for everyone.
Research indicates that businesses perform better when employees feel included and their workplace is firmly committed to supporting diversity. Celebrating Harmony Week and more importantly, upholding its values throughout the year can be done in various ways in the workplace. Be it organising a staff potluck that showcases the diversity of your team, celebrating cultural holidays or even creating a safe space for employees to talk about their unique cultural experiences.
