Pacific Integrative Health Logo_0522.jpg

 

People are at the heart of who we are and what we do. Our commitment is to create a culture of wellbeing, inclusion, and diversity, where people are safe to be themselves and feel respected and valued. Setting our people up for success empowers them to deliver great outcomes and value to our members, our organisation, and our communities. When people thrive, everyone benefits.

 

The Wellbeing, Inclusion and Diversity Policy supports our vision and purpose. It sets out how the organisation will ensure it is a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace. It will enable our commitment to inclusion and diversity.

 

Our Wellbeing, Inclusion and Diversity Policy focuses on four key areas:

  1. Foster individual wellbeing. Promote and support individual health and wellbeing, fostering greater engagement, inclusion, and the ability to thrive.

  2. Lead with inclusion. Promote a people centred culture where people feel safe, respected, included, and valued. We will create a positive and productive workplace, where people are set up for success and are able to thrive work.

  3.  

    Empower a diverse workforce. Leverage our diversity to create opportunities to innovate and deliver excellence to our members, our organisation, and the profession.

  4. Community and advocacy. Leverage our internal capability to lead the profession in advocating for equity, inclusion, and diversity, partnering with members to enhance our communities.

 

Pacific Integrative Health recognises its talented and diverse workforce as a key competitive advantage. Our business success reflects the quality and skill of our people.

 

Diversity management benefits individuals, teams, our company, and our customers. We recognise that each employee/volunteer brings their own unique capabilities, experiences, and characteristics to their work. We value such diversity at all levels of the company in all that we do.

 

We strive to create and foster a supportive and understanding environment in which all individuals realise their maximum potential within the company, regardless of their differences. We are committed to employing the best people to do the best job possible. We recognise the importance of reflecting the diversity of our customers and markets in our workforce. The diverse capabilities that reside within our organisation, positions Pacific Integrative Health to anticipate and fulfil the needs of our diverse customers, both domestically and internationally, providing high quality services.

 

Pacific Integrative Health is diverse along many dimensions. Our diversity encompasses differences in ethnicity, gender, language, age, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, physical and mental ability, thinking styles, experience, and education. We believe that the wide array of perspectives that results from such diversity promotes innovation and business success. Managing diversity makes us more creative, flexible, productive, and competitive.

 

Recruitment

 

Pacific Integrative Health recruits’ people from all backgrounds. We believe that our employees/volunteers from many different cultural, linguistic, and national backgrounds provide us with valuable knowledge for understanding and reflecting our customers in local markets.

We recognise that racism, ageism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination are problems both for our organisation and society. Pacific Integrative Health is committed to tackling cultural stereotypes both within and outside our organisation.

 

 

Diversity bodies

 

Our commitment to diversity is led by our diversity champions who come from all levels of involvement, from full time commitments to half-day commitments. The diversity champions make up a diversity committee, which is responsible for ensuring that our diversity policy is articulated in the day to day running and the strategic direction of the company.
