According to LinkedIn, AGL really is a great place to work. We’ve just been announced among Australia’s Top Companies. Our inclusion in LinkedIn’s Top Company ranks factors in the behaviour of over half a billion professionals on LinkedIn focusing on four core areas of data: reach, engagement, job interest and retention.

What we do, and how we do it, ultimately comes down to the people who work at AGL and if our people are our greatest asset – it’s essential that we invest in making AGL a great place to work. This way we can keep working hard to meet the needs of our customers and the community.

What are some of the benefits of working for AGL?

A career at AGL is more than just a competitive salary. We support our employees with a range of employment benefits, development programs and career opportunities. In addition to the benefits and policies you’d expect from a large ASX-listed employer, it’s the culture that we’ve embedded in the business that we think makes all the difference. We want our people to bring their whole selves to work, to be their best and follow their passion.

Lifestyle benefits of working at AGL

  • Flexible approach to workplace flexibility – be it different start or finish times, a condensed working week, working remotely, job sharing, or even something else we haven’t thought of yet – workplace flexibility is a part of our culture.
  • Paid Parental Leave - We provide 20 weeks paid parental leave to the primary carer (male or female in the first 12 months), along with two weeks paid partner leave at the time of the birth.
  • Matching employee donations – Through our Power to Give program, we provide avenues for our people to support the causes that they are passionate about, with regular and one-off charity donations matched by AGL, up to $5,000 per employee per annum, effectively doubling the impact for the charity.
  • Volunteering Leave – Our Power to Give program also connects our people to volunteering opportunities from over 1,500 charities, and all employees receive one day of paid volunteering leave each year.

What we’re working towards

Together, we’re driven by an end goal to deliver a safe and reliable essential service to Australian homes and businesses, to meet and exceed customer and community expectations and to keep evolving as the industry transforms.

The work we do is varied and interesting and with 180 years of operation under our belt, we’re ready for what’s next. So, let us show you what an average day is like at AGL…
