Thriving People

Creating value by inspiring, engaging and developing our people

We focus on building and sustaining an engaged, high-performing workforce that delivers on Dexus's strategy and embraces our values

Our Thriving People objective reflects the efforts, capabilities, and enthusiasm of our people to deliver on Dexus’s strategy. Our people act as brand custodians and support sustained performance. They are passionate, agile and engaged in the purpose and direction of the group. Our people tell us they are inspired and motivated to create spaces where people thrive. 

We understand that diversity brings broad perspectives that lead to better decision-making, and enables us to access the widest pool of available talent. Our inclusion and diversity strategy focuses on attracting and retaining the diverse workforce required to succeed in today’s ever-changing business environment. 

We believe that investing in the development of our people and capabilities will create meaningful, fulfilling work for our teams and support the culture required for achieving sustained results. Our leaders set the tone from the top, by focusing on inclusive leadership that brings the best out of their teams. Another factor contributing to enhanced performance is a safe and healthy work environment. Our employee health and wellbeing programs reflect the understanding that health is a state of physical, mental and social wellbeing.
