Diversity & Inclusion at Coca-Cola Amatil

Diversity & Inclusion


Diversity and inclusion

Overwhelmingly, our 12,000 employees tell us that the best thing about working at Coca-Cola Amatil is the people that they work with. We come from all walks of life, across many cultures and backgrounds.

We recognise that a diverse workforce encompasses gender, ethnicity, age, disability, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, family and relationship status, socio-economic background and education. Diversity also encompasses the many ways our people work, their life experience, location, ways of thinking and work experiences.

We know that the strength of our brands can only be supported through the strength of our people. We recognise that creating a diverse workforce and building capability and talent is critical to our ongoing success.

In order to ensure we understand those customers, our consumers and the community we know that we must attract, retain and develop a workforce that reflects the markets we operate in, and in turn deliver strong business results and returns to our shareholders.

We know that embracing the inherent differences in our people will result in an inclusive workplace which is an enabler for innovation, effective decision making and ultimately a more engaged and productive workforce.

Our aim is to create a respectful workplace where equal opportunity exists at all phases of the employment life cycle, regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and age - and we run various programs and initiatives across the company to ensure we achieve this goal.

By embracing an inclusive culture, we build a team of people who bring their differences to work every day to deliver growth and build a stronger organisation for today, and tomorrow. We continue to make good progress on our gender diversity targets. Women now hold 38 per cent of Board, 43 per cent of senior executive and 21 per cent of management positions.
