Health and wellbeing

We provide a range of activities and initiatives to support and encourage a safe and healthy workplace. Employees share an obligation to help create and maintain our positive, respectful workplace.

We offer an Employee Assistance Program — a short-term, confidential, professional counselling service available to all employees and their immediate families.

Employees are also able to access annual onsite flu vaccines and health checks, and reimbursement of costs associated with eyesight testing at 2 yearly intervals.

Workplace diversity and inclusion

The ACMA is committed to a workplace that reflects the community we serve. We recognise that diversity brings a range of experiences, perspectives and ideas to our workplace.

A diverse workforce lets us think broadly, be innovative and productive. We value the experience and input of people with different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives.
