Our Workplace Culture
YMCA Queensland may be more than 150 years old, but our policies and workplace environment are always being updated to align with best practices. We believe in creating a safe, inclusive and supportive place of employment. We want our employees to love coming to work, love their team and love the difference they make through the Y.
Honesty, Caring, Responsibility and Respect. These are the values we look for in our employees to create a cohesive team... and also the values we work to as an organisation. The Y endeavours to be transparent and communicate openly with staff. When times get tough, the Y rallies to care for colleagues. We recognise the important responsibility we have to look after our more than 1,200 talented staff, and our policies reflect this.
Everyone is welcome at the Y
We're not just committed to encouraging and embracing diversity among staff and members — we celebrate it! At the Y, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of who we are. Every person deserves the right to work in a welcoming, encouraging and inspiring environment.
We appreciate the value of different cultural backgrounds, religions, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, languages and abilities. Together with diverse experiences and perspectives, we are a stronger organisation that better represents Australian society.
