Flexibility + Work Life Balance

At Medibank, our purpose is: For Better Health. To live this purpose, we embrace a healthier way of working by providing employees with flexibility in how and where they conduct their work.

This approach is known as

We recognise that for us to embrace an inclusive culture, we need to have a workplace which is flexible.  We appreciate that each individual’s work preferences, and work needs, can change over time and are influenced by life outside work.

Flexibility is available to all our employees – whether that be to spending time volunteering, participating in sports or leisure activities, dressing in smart casual, or making it home in time to spend some time with your family at the end of the day.  The FLEXbetter approach is all about balance – supporting the wellbeing of our employees as well as our customers.
