Memberships and awards

We are active members in industry groups, and are proud that our work has been recognised with many prestigious awards over the years

We believe it is important to partner not only with our customers, but also with our industry more broadly. We are active participants in a range of industry-specific groups, as well as number of organisations whose values align with ours to have an enduring impact. We also proactively seek third party sustainability certification ratings on our designs and operational performance.

And while the focus of our work will always be on delivering outstanding results for our customers and communities, we always share a sense of pride when our achievements are recognised. The awards we receive underscore our inventive spirit and drive, and demonstrates our commitment to actively contributing to our industry.

Employer of Choice for Gender Equality

We’re proud once again to be named an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency in 2023. This achievement reflects our commitment to equal opportunity and mutual success, which is underpinned by how we support and encourage all our people to reach their full potential.

Because creating meaningful initiatives to address gender diversity is a key business priority, we place emphasis on experiences, rotations and learning through others to make the most of transferable skills and equip our people with the capabilities they need to help us grow as a business and make Charter Hall a great place to work.

Our ongoing partnership with Two Good Co continues to create opportunities for women to regain their financial independence and confidence, with paid employment and support.

AFR BOSS Most Innovative Companies

Charter Hall was recognised as one of Australia and New Zealand's Most Innovative Companies for the second consecutive year, ranking first on the Property, Construction and Transport List, published by the Australian Financial Review and BOSS Magazine annually.
