Delivering on our purpose

Our customers, community and employees are front of mind in our approach to having a positive impact on society.
Social impact: We consider our impact and how we can apply our capabilities for broader public good.  We want to achieve and hold ourselves accountable for positive outcomes for all of our people, communities and partners.
Data trust and use: Data and insights form the foundation for SEEK’s products and services. Leveraging data and artificial technology improves outcomes for candidates and hirers and in evolving this capability SEEK takes an ethical and risk-based approach with a focus on user trust.
Fair Hiring: Customers interacting with SEEK’s employment platforms expect their job searching experience to be efficient, safe and secure.  Fair hiring reflects our commitment to consider the risks to candidate working lives when engaging with SEEK’s employment marketplaces.   
Employees:  At SEEK we believe in a community where people feel valued.  Innovation, creativity and passion drive us.  SEEK is committed to providing equal opportunities to employees and maintaining an inclusive culture, which values diversity of thought, opinion and background.

Minimising impact and responding to climate change

Through measuring and striving to minimise energy use and emissions, we aim to reduce our environmental impact. In Australia and New Zealand our business operations have been certified carbon neutral for FY2021 and we are committed to carbon neutrality across our global footprint.  For more information, refer to Climate Active.

Our target is to achieve net zero emissions across the full scope of carbon emissions by 2030.  We assess the risk and opportunities of climate change on our business in line with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) Framework.

Governance

We are committed to conducting business in an honest, ethical and responsible way. We promote responsible and ethical business practices, via a culture of trust and respect supported by our corporate governance policies.
