Bankwest prides itself on supporting the community in every way possible so it’s nice to be recognised for what we do.
2013 National Employer Support Award by the National Defence Reserves Support Council for supporting the Australian Defence Force Reserves. The annual National awards, held at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, recognise private sector and government employers who have been particularly supportive of their Reservist employees.
"Bankwest prides itself on being closely connected to the communities we serve, and we strongly encourage our colleagues to volunteer their time with diverse organisations that make a real difference,”
Chief Executive and CIO
This award is testament to our ongoing efforts in supporting our people in the Australian Defence Force Reserves.

Volunteering WA recognises Bankwest as an employer who leads and excels in a best practice corporate volunteering program to benefit the Western Australian community.
“The tireless volunteering efforts of many of Bankwest’s employees in assisting community organisations through the far reaching corporate volunteering program established and run by Bankwest represents an outstanding contribution to our community. It also presents a wonderful example of a successful program that is facilitating and inspiring others to volunteer for the benefit of their communities.”
“The extraordinary and significant voluntary contribution of the Bankwest Corporate Volunteering Program has helped to make our community stronger, more vibrant and more compassionate. On behalf of the Western Australian community, I thank you for the important work that you do and the invaluable efforts of the volunteers from your organisation.
Without people like yourself and your colleagues who generously volunteer, there would be no ‘community’ in the true sense of the word.”
