Our benefits

From flexible work options and generous superannuation contributions, to several types of leave, a healthy culture of acknowledgment for hard work and great supplier discounts, IAG prides itself on being a great place to work. By way of example, employees in Australia enjoy the following benefits:

Pay and short term incentives

IAG’s approach to remuneration is about rewarding and recognising your performance. Your total potential reward is made up of your fixed pay (your base salary and superannuation) and your short term incentive (STI). Your fixed pay recognises your capability and performance in your role. Your fixed pay is reviewed annually at which time your manager may recommend an adjustment. Eligible employees can participate in an STI plan. STIs ensure you are rewarded for your individual and team contribution to the wider success of our business. STIs are the “at risk” component of your total potential reward.

Flexible work and leave options

Flexible work arrangements and leave options that may be available to you include:

  • Flexible working - part-time, job share, variable hours and compressed working weeks
  • The chance to buy 6 weeks extra leave for a shorter working year
  • Leave without pay as a career break
  • Mid Service Leave of 1 week annually on your 7th, 8th and 9th anniversary at IAG
  • Long Service Leave of 2 months after 10 years of service
  • Leave to volunteer, study or care for a family member

Requests depend on your work circumstances and must be discussed with your manager.

Caring for family

IAG understands the challenge of balancing work and family so we have benefits to support you, including:

  • 14 weeks paid primary carer’s leave plus a welcome back payment of an additional 6 week’s pay on your return to work
  • 3 weeks paid secondary carer’s leave
  • Childcare leave and family sick leave
  • A carer’s room in major sites

Competitive superannuation

IAG’s superannuation rate of 13% is currently above the legislated minimum and is highly competitive compared to other companies. The IAG and NRMA Superannuation Plan is our own fund and benefits include:

  • 6 investments options (4 for Retirement Income Stream members)
  • Insurance cover including salary continuance, total permanent disablement and death
  • Allocated pensions and transition to retirement income streams for members 55 years and over

Salary sacrificing

Eligible IAG employees can salary sacrifice:

  • Qantas Club membership
  • Virgin Lounge membership
  • Motor vehicles*
  • Car parking*
  • Union fees

Employee share plan

The IAG employee share plan is a tax effective chance to buy IAG shares through salary-sacrificed payments. You contribute $900 to the cost of your shares over a 12-month period and IAG contributes $100.

Recognition and reward

Our excellence awards program celebrates the outstanding work of individuals and teams. All high performing employees can be nominated, or nominate others, for outstanding contributions that are consistent with IAG’s vision. Our formal recognition and reward points system acknowledges individuals and teams for the great work that happens every day. E-cards are one way to acknowledge great work; nominating colleagues for reward points, able to be redeemed for a gift of choice through our catalogue, is another. Our milestone program acknowledges long-standing IAG employees with a certificate and reward points.

Giving back

IAG’s community programs allow you to give back to your local community via:

  • Workplace giving – an easy and effective way to donate as your contribution is matched by IAG, doubling its impact
  • Volunteer leave – IAG provides one day each year for you to volunteer with our community partners
