People development

We provide opportunities for our people to enhance their job performance and develop their careers.

Wesfarmers is one of Australia's largest employers with approximately 100,000 employees.

In the year to 30 June 2018 (prior to the Coles demerger), we distributed $9.3 billion in salaries, wages and benefits to our employees and our businesses provided employment to approximately one in 60 working Australians.

Our greatest competitive advantage is our people and we are committed to providing them with opportunities to improve their performance and their careers.
