Our QBE DNA
Everything we do at QBE is underpinned by our DNA – because we know it's not just what we do that matters, it's how we do it that makes the difference.
QBE recognises that the way we work has changed and continues to change. Because of this, we have introduced Hybrid Working. Our hybrid ways of working are built on addressing three core aspects of people and performance - the work we do, working as a team and working at my best.
At QBE we believe that our people are able to be at their best when they are within an environment that supports them to bring their true authentic selves to work.
At QBE, we understand there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to work, which is why we offer accessibility and workplace adjustments, to provide you with the individual support you may need to thrive.
Our vision for reconciliation is to embed an understanding of our shared past where all Australians are united together to celebrate, acknowledge and respect the contribution of Australia’s First Peoples.
At QBE, we are committed to a workplace culture where all of our people are supported to achieve their career aspirations and are able to thrive at work and at home.
Empowering our people to help make change
Our QBE Foundation local grant program is a way for us to provide meaningful support for community initiatives addressing specific areas of need.
The QBE Employee Choice category invites QBE employees based in Australia to support a charity they work with by collaborating on a local grant application.
QBE Foundation local grants - Employee Choice category
Our local grants program is designed to make a difference in the community and engage and empower our employees to make a positive impact by being part of the final selection process. The Employee Choice category encourages our people to support a charity they work with by applying for a grant together.
