At The Warehouse Group we are committed to providing a work environment where every team member can bring their whole self to work. We have a business wide commitment to connect the power of inclusion with the potential of our differences. We provide an equitable work environment that enables all individuals to reach their potential, by being seen, heard and served, accounting for all different styles, needs and aspirations.
We hire on merit, operate with fairness & promote based on talent.

As a committed member of the Equal Employment Opportunties (EEO) initiative we actively work to eliminate barriers that can often prevent candidates from being considered for a role. We'll support you to perform at your best, we'll reward you fairly & team members have equal chances at leadership roles.
We do this because its the right thing to do & because it makes great business sense. When everyone's included & supported, we benefit by retaining our best people & the innovation that comes from true diversity of thought.
Our LGBTQIA+ team members are an essential part of who we are, and we are proud to provide an environment where everyone can bring their wholeselves to work.
We are Rainbow Tick certified, achieving accreditation in 2017. Thats the same year we introduced our Gender Transition policy to ensure anyone on our team is fully supported if they're considering their identity or transitioning. We're also incredibly proud to support The Big Gay Out & Out in the City.
Ensuring we actively work towards closing the gender gap has been a core commitment for us over the years. TWG is incredibly proud that we've achieved 100% gender pay equity at a Group level. We have also increased women in senior leadership roles by 44% and run several bespoke programmes to encourage women's ability to thrive in the workplace.
In 2020, we launched Lean In, a peer-to-peer mentoring programme, that challenges gender bias through professional and leadership development opportunities. Lean In equips participants to navigate gender dynamics, lead authentically and gain confidence to pursue their dreams without bias or other barriers holding them back.
Throughout the year, we host internal events for our team members around our stores, our distribution centres and our Store Support Office. With 11,000 team members across the country, we feel we have a duty to not only celebrate the various cultures and ethnicities that encompass our organisation but to educate others as well.
Parental Leave Policy
We updated our Parental Leave Policy in early 2022. This update tops up parental leave payments to full pay for the first 6 months of an eligible team members leave. This has been a key initiative to support our efforts in gender equality pay as it enables team members to focus on growing their families without the additional financial strain, provides support for an ease-back approach to returning to work, and encourages team members to continue to grow their careers with us.
Ethics & Sustainability
At TWG, we're committed to championing sustainability & ethical trading.
