Work life balance


We've made it easier for our colleagues to strike the perfect work life balance and enjoy how they work.

Activity Based Working (ABW)

To ensure our colleagues have the right working environment to achieve their best – we’re committed to providing the latest state of the art spaces to work.

Our colleagues at the Bankwest Place head office building in Perth and Sydney offices on Clarence Street experience all the benefits of our new ‘Activity Based Working’ (ABW) environment.

  • colleagues can choose to work at the same desk for the day or move to a variety of workspaces according to the task they need to perform
  • access exciting technological tools designed to foster collaboration, flexibility, mobility and choice

Bankwest was proudly the first organisation in Western Australia to adopt ABW. Nationally we’re seen as one of the innovative market leaders in workplace design and implementation.

Flexible working

Flexible working is an important part of how we do business and we know it's important to our colleagues.

It’s our collective approach to diversity and inclusion, including flexible working, which has enabled us to achieve increased engagement, attract and retain diverse talent and provide more ways for colleagues to simultaneously achieve their career goals and meet their personal needs.

Flexible working arrangements are requested for a number of reasons, including pursuing further education, community commitments and family reasons.

Colleagues also have access to other great benefits Bankwest offers, such as Purchased Annual Leave and paid Parental Leave for primary and secondary carers.
