Employee benefits

People and Culture DMA - Employee benefits - p21

Dexus offers a number of employee benefits in line with contemporary Australian market practice. Benefits are offered regardless of full-time or part-time employment status, but may be pro-rated in the case of leave and life insurance benefits which are based on the employee’s regular salary level. Temporary employees engaged via a labour hire agency or contracting agreement receive benefits from their primary employer, the cost of which is factored into the hourly rate or service fee paid by Dexus. Temporary employees are not eligible for the following benefits: leave benefits, life and disability insurance, membership to the corporate discount program, study assistance.

Dexus contributes retirement provisions in line with Australia's employer superannuation guarantee requirements. In FY18 Dexus provided superannuation contributions at the legislated contribution rate of 9.5%, unless elected at a higher rate by an employee as part of a voluntary contribution.
