Pernod Ricard - setting a benchmark

Written by  Staff Reporters

Pernod Ricard Winemakers achieved pay equity in 2022, while the wider Pernod Ricard group was named a Forbes World's Best Employer and Forbes Top Female-Friendly Company for the second year running.

In 2021, it became the first wine company to be recognised as an employer of choice for gender equality by the Australian Government's Workplace Gender Equality Agency, achieving recertification in February this year.

"Recognition like this reinforces our diverse and inclusive culture, where everyone is invited to our convivial world," says Christian Campanella, Pernod Ricard Winemakers' HR, Communications, Sustainability and Responsibility Director.

With a global goal of having equal senior management roles by 2030, New Zealand operations are well ahead, with women making up 47% of the company's senior management and 49% of the overall business, says Christian. Meanwhile, pay equity remains under the spotlight, with an annual external review.

"As a part of our approach to diversity and inclusion, we are committed to providing a fair and equitable workplace culture where all genders have access to the same resources, opportunities and rewards."
