We are pleased to participate in the Workplace Gender Equality Agency’s 2022-23 pay gap analysis. HLB Mann Judd’s vision is to be the most highly regarded mid-tier accounting firm through the growth of our people and of our clients. To achieve this vision, we recognise the importance of bringing together people who can share different experiences, opinions and ideas.

We are committed to promoting gender equality because we believe that cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace fosters innovation, creativity and productivity, ultimately aligning with our vision.

HLB Mann Judd Sydney’s average total remuneration gender pay gap for the reporting period was 2.9 per cent, which compares favourably to our Industry Comparison Group gap of 14.4 per cent. We are pleased with this result, and while we understand that any gap may fluctuate as our workforce grows, we remain committed to striving for a zero per cent gap. We also celebrate our workforce composition, with females comprising 55 per cent, and the increased female appointments to new roles during the reporting period. We are confident that we are steering the firm in a positive direction, and our focus in the next reporting period will be on continuing to develop a pipeline to support and promote our female leaders.

We are dedicated to continuous improvement in gender equality practices and appreciate the support and guidance provided by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency. We look forward to continuing to contribute to a more inclusive and equitable workplace for all.
