Dexus announces new employee wellbeing benefits
Dexus today announced that it will provide new benefits that focus on the wellbeing of its employees.
We have introduced two new employee benefits: 5 Dexus Days and a Wellbeing Subsidy.
- Dexus Days provides five additional days of leave per employee per year
- The Wellbeing Subsidy provides $100 per month towards an employee’s wellbeing
Dan Cook, Dexus Head of People and Communities said: “We are modernising the approach we take on how we engage and recognise our people. These benefits are designed to help our people work in an agile way which we believe will, in turn, drive a more energised and productive workforce.”
Dexus’ Employee Benefits and Recognition Community played a key role in determining the composition of the new employee benefits. The Community is part of a broader employee-led approach which encompasses six Wellbeing Communities charged with creating and implementing initiatives and strategies across Mind, Body & Nutrition; Diversity & Inclusion; Professional Development; Workplace & Social; Employee Benefits & Recognition; and Corporate Responsibility.
The Employee Benefits and Recognition Community conducted a series of employee surveys to find out what our people value and what motivates them. They told us they valued time, flexibility and wellbeing.
5 Dexus Days recognises our people’s desire for more time outside of work, with the flexibility of using these days for such things as health, wellbeing, volunteering or leisure. The Wellbeing Subsidy provides our people with a contribution to wellbeing - which could be put towards health insurance, gym fees or sponsoring a charity.
Mr Cook added: “We’ve had a terrific response to the announcement of the new wellbeing initiatives. We have a highly engaged workforce and our people appreciate that we are listening and responding to their needs.”
Our wellbeing approach also encompasses job and workplace flexibility supported by industry leading initiatives such as the continuous payment of superannuation entitlements throughout parental leave and access to priority childcare spaces through our partnership with Guardian Early Learning.
These benefits are in addition to other great benefits already on offer including a corporate health insurance scheme, an Employee Share Ownership Plan, subsidised insurance, and deals and discounts through our partners including Divvy and GoGet.
