Employee benefits

Flexible working arrangements

You will have the opportunity to discuss flexibility options about how, where and when you work, to balance your work and personal life. For you, it may be coming in earlier or later, going to an appointment during work hours, working part-time, or many other arrangements to suit you. 

Family friendly parental leave

Our parental leave entitlements are designed to help you thrive at home and work as your family grows. We offer attractive parental leave benefits that provide flexibility for shared care plus additional support to help you stay connected and transition back into the workplace.  

Employee Ownership

Around 35% of our employees are shareholders, with ownership across regions and role levels. Our ownership model is underpinned by Shareholding Principles: a belief that success is built on the achievements and contributions of all of us. It's about empowering exceptional people – giving those who are making a sustained contribution the opportunity to purchase shares and become owners of the company. 

Compassionate leave

Be there for those who matter most to you, with our enhanced compassionate leave. Additional bereavement leave (up to three additional days) is provided for people who may have to travel overseas, carry out responsibilities relating to the bereavement and/or cultural reasons. 

Wellbeing leave

In line with our value of 'Care', we offer wellbeing leave so you can make time for whatever matters most to you and to take care of yourself. This is in addition to annual leave, and is available to all permanent or fixed-term employees.  

Diversity and inclusion

To support our Rainbow community and celebrate diversity, we offer a number of initiatives including supporting employees who are going through the gender affirmation process.  

Volunteer Leave

Reflecting our purpose to 'make everyday better', we offer volunteer leave so you can do your part in areas that are important to you and support your community. This is in addition to annual leave and is available to all permanent or fixed-term employees.

Career development and growth

Empower Intermediate Programme  

Intermediate-level employees undergo a two-year development programme designed to build capability in areas that are important for your career success.

Our 'MyPotential' program aligns to the direction of the business and how your individual efforts align, providing clarity on what your key priorities are. It also supports what drives and motivates you, and what you want to achieve in your career long-term.

Teamwork and trust underpin our commitment to creating a sustainable work environment, and through our Employee Assistance Program, you will have to access support and coaching anytime you need to be your best self. 

Employee-led social groups

We have a range of employee affinity groups that connect our people, increase a sense of inclusion, and raise awareness of certain topics. Groups include the Green Team (sustainability), Gender at Beca and the Reconciliation Action Plan Team. You can also join our office-based social clubs that run social activities and entertainment.
