Diversity at Grant Thornton

8.6
8.6 rating for Diversity, based on 70 reviews
Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.
Gender diversity in Audit is very good, with a good gender balance at all levels. Women are also afforded respect at all levels within the company. There is still an imbalance in ethnic representation in my opinion, but it is better than the average workplace at present and the POC that are here are treated fairly and equally. LGBT visibility is decent and no one is treated differently because of their sexuality, although I do not believe we have any trans employees so it is difficult to speak to that.

There is an inclusive work environment in my view and even though there is not an equal proportion of men and women in the company there is still an attempt made to further the cause of diversity and inclusiveness with respect to minorities and LGBTIQ.

Heading in the right direction, the more graduate levels are becoming more and more diverse.

We have a diverse team, we usually have overseas employees on secondment, though COVID has limited that. We are about to work with a secondment from India soon.

Seems accommodating of gender, ethnicity and sexual identities.
Graduate, Sydney
I see no issue in diversity in our firm. We have a range of people from different areas of the world, different ages (at different levels), people with and without children, flexibility around having a family, mix of genders in our teams etc.
Graduate, Perth
Strong diversity committee and many events are held.

I am a male and do not belong to an ethnic minority or have diverse sexual / gender orientation, so I probably can't comment on this in great detail. However, the company appears to value people from diverse backgrounds by advertising and promoting equality and diversity throughout the recruitment process and with numerous committees. There are a reasonable number of women in my team generally and in higher positions. There are generous paternal leave options available, well above minimum standards. Employees are able to return to work after taking paternal leave.

It appears GT is committed to all of these things. I am often seeing emails about diversity, which is very refreshing. Many employees have children and GT - and its employees - is very considerate of this.
Graduate, Melbourne
I'm a female and part of an ethnic minority and feel extremely welcome and respected. I did not feel discriminated against at any stage throughout the hiring process but I understand that my personal experiences do not represent those of other people.
Graduate, Melbourne
LGBT acceptance seems to be a very high priority, the work place is very diverse and accepting.
Graduate, Melbourne
Unbiased recruiting process and day to day treatment regardless of demographic.

Strong area for the firm.

Really good - very progressive maternity leave policies. We have a diversity committee as well that organises diversity related initiatives - but I can't comment on what these are or the other maters such as child care, LGBT etc.
Graduate, Melbourne
We have training sessions on cultural awareness and diversity at work. The company also provides reasonable maternity leave benefits.
Graduate, Cairns
There are lots of diverse clients and staff.
Graduate, Cairns
AS far as I am aware, the company has a diverse range of abilities, ethnicities, sex, and minority groups. Additionally the benefits of maternity leave, parental leave etc is also available
Graduate, Melbourne
Plenty of diversity programs available.
Graduate, Sydney
So many things available

GT has a large woman based partnership, as well as individuals with many diverse backgrounds. I have not seen anything to suggest GT is not committed to diversity.

What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
I am not aware of any specific programs to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds. As far as I am aware most networking with prospective applicants is done through guest lectures, careers days and extra-curricular guest panels, which can be exclusive to students who are unable to come to class in person to network or go to additional events if they need to work or have carer's duties etc.
Graduate, Adelaide
All I am aware of is that candidates from less privileged backgrounds were invited and hosted for a cadet-ship.
Graduate, Sydney
Not sure if they specifically reach out to underprivileged communities but the hiring process is based on merit and not where you came from.
Graduate, Melbourne
Unaware of what is being done in this space
Graduate, Adelaide
Offer all kinds of support
Graduate, Melbourne
Everyone is recruited, promoted and treated on a level playing field. I've never witnessed favourable or unfavourable treatment on myself or any colleagues.
Midlevel, Sydney
I don't know if they do anything different, however, when it comes to social media presence, they are always showcasing their acceptance for anyone to join.
Graduate, Perth
Open to giving opportunties to people from all backgrounds for work experience and interning programs.
