Our goals

Together we will help create a better culture where all people are given the same respect, rights and opportunities to work, live, shop and prosper every day. We want to ensure Kmart is not only a great place to shop, but also to work. We aim to always put our people first. This includes our team members, customers, partners and broader community.

Our People goals are to:

  • Create an inclusive culture
  • Help our communities thrive

Our targets

By December 2020, we will achieve a 3% Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce.

By December 2025 we will achieve 50% women in leadership roles.

Our approach

Create an inclusive culture

We aim to make Kmart welcoming for everyone and ensure our team reflects the communities where we operate.

To achieve this goal and our targets, we have appointed a diversity and inclusion lead and have been listening to our team, customers and partners to understand the barriers to progress. We are working on a comprehensive action plan. Find out more about our progress on diversity and inclusion.

In addition to our two key targets, we are focusing on maximising employment opportunities for people with disabilities and ensuring our marketing communications are inclusive. At Kmart, being inclusive is also about the health, safety and wellbeing of our team.

Help our communities thrive

As a major retailer we believe we have a responsibility to support the communities where we operate.

We are reviewing the needs of our communities locally, nationally and globally to define a strategy that draws on our strengths and focuses our energy on the topics that will make the biggest difference. Together we want to build a long-term plan that will help our communities thrive.
