Better Giving is a way for our people to donate to charities by making regular donations direct from their pay. One of the exciting features of Better Giving is the commitment from Latitude to match dollar for dollar the donations made by our staff. This means twice the benefit and impact for the Better Giving charity partners and invites us to work as a team knowing that Better Giving has the potential to deliver better outcomes for those in the community.
In Australia our Better Giving Partners are: Reachout, Redkite, The Salvation Army, Ardoch and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. And in New Zealand we support: Duffy Books in Homes, Child Cancer Foundation, Mental Health Foundation and Women’s Refuge
Our Financial Capability program has been designed to build the capability and financial literacy of our employees, with the added benefit of assisting them in working with our customers.
We have partnered with the Commission of Financial Capability (CFFC) to offer a series of programs and tools to assist employees with their financial wellbeing.
As part of our ongoing commitment to key local partnerships, we are strengthening our two long-running and successful local partnerships, with Ardoch in Australia and Duffy Books in Homes in New Zealand. These partners focus on empowering our communities and children through education.
