Indigenous Employment Index

Working to better understand the state of Indigenous employment parity among Australia’s large employers.

For Participating employers


In 2021 Generation One is launching Australia’s first Indigenous Employment Index. This index will engage with 50 of Australia’s large employers to:

  • Establish a baseline for the state of Indigenous employment parity among Australia’s large employers;
  • Identify what practices work to achieve sustainable Indigenous employment;
  • Deliver a national report and individual, confidential organisational profiles.

For participating employers, register for an information session in August or September 2021.

The mission

There is a significant lack of data and limited reporting on Indigenous employment. Without data, we cannot make informed decisions to close the employment gap.

The purpose

This comprehensive study into Indigenous employment practices will advance our collective understanding of “what works” in promoting sustainable and meaningful Indigenous employment parity.

The process

Participating employers will:

  • Gain access to the Index’s extensive Conceptual Framework, outlining a range of organisational drivers for sustainable Indigenous employment.
  • Receive a confidential, individual benchmark report for the organisation. This will identify strengths, gaps and opportunities for improvement.
  • Evaluate the maturity of organisational policies and practices, and their impacts on Indigenous employment.
  • Access practical support through Generation One’s facilitated peer network.
