This partnership aims to train and certify people in new skills, making them easily transferable – so people can follow opportunity wherever they find it. We also introduced programmes to develop leaders. For example, more than 100 people, from frontline to senior levels, developed their global leadership and networking skills this year. Supported by an executive sponsor, they were taught by other leaders as well as an internationally recognised business faculty. More broadly, some 6,000 leaders across the company developed their leadership capabilities through our six-month Leading for Success programme. 30 Chief executive town halls and small group discussions at 20 locations 2x Global engagement surveys each year +2pts Employee satisfaction +8pts Employee Net Promoter Score RUNNING A SAFE, RESPONSIBLE AND PROFITABLE BUSINESS: OUR VALUES AT WORK 25 2018 Sustainable development report

This year, we revised our policy on inclusion and diversity, jointly owned by the board and Executive Committee, to more explicitly clarify our expectations around behaviours and personal accountability. We also rolled out a gender- neutral paid parental leave in every country where we operate, making 18 weeks of paid leave available to primary carers, including single parents and employees in same-sex relationships. We are still not where we want to be; our overall percentage of female employees dropped by 0.3% to 17.7% (6,963 women; 32,419 men). Although the number of women in operations roles rose from 5% to 15%, only 22.6% of our senior management roles are held by women (112 women; 383 men) versus 22.4% in 2017 (117 women; 406 men). We are continuing to work with external partners, such as recruitment agencies and universities, to bring more female graduates into our business. In 2018, there were 62 women in our graduate intake (36%), and our aim in 2019 is to make this 50%. In Australia this year, we won the Excellence in Diversity Programs and Performance Award at the 2018 Women in Resources National Awards (WIRNA) for our commitment to gender diversity and breaking the cycle of violence against women. Gender diversity Pay equity Our ongoing pay health checks ensure that employees with similar skills, knowledge, qualifications, experience and performance are paid equally for work of the same or comparable nature. Our Group-wide gender pay gap this year was 1% in favour of men overall and 2% in favour of men like-for-like. We are addressing these issues – see our website for more detail.
