Closing the Māori and Pasifika pay gap

As part of our focus on pay equity, we’re working towards closing our ethnicity pay gap.

Our pay gap data

In 2022, we committed to strengthening the quality of information we have on the ethnicity of our people. As part of our Matariki celebrations, we asked employees to share if they identified as Māori or Pasifika. Based on the data voluntarily provided, 8.7% of our permanent workforce identify as Māori or Pasifika.  

Collecting this data can be challenging and we have more work to do to encourage everyone to voluntarily declare their ethnic identity. We’re progressively rolling out a new Human Resources system to help collate ethnicity data. We’re committed to expanding our disclosure to include other ethnicities as data allows.

The number of permanent employees of ANZ Bank New Zealand Limited who identify as Māori or Pasifika  is 8.7% of the total permanent employee population, including employees who have not declared an ethnicity.  

Employees who haven’t provided ethnicity data aren’t included in the ethnicity pay gap calculation. We recognise that our ethnicity pay gap is based on less than half of our workforce and does not provide a complete picture.

Values (unaudited) are provided by ANZ Bank New Zealand Limited employees on a voluntary basis and are as at 30 September 2022.
