Challenger seeks to provide a diverse and inclusive workforce and values the capability and experience that a wide variety of employees bring to the organisation. We recognise that an inclusive work environment increases our ability to attract and retain the best talent from the widest pool of candidates, enabling us to maintain a high performing team. We also recognise that successfully harnessing diverse thinking and working styles contributes to innovation and superior long-term sustainable outcomes.
