Our Workforce

Our most important asset is our people, and our priority is to provide them with a safe working environment and a supportive working culture.  

Health and Safety

Safety is a critical and non-negotiable objective of Elders. We continuously improve our work health and safety systems to achieve our goal of zero harm in our business.

Over the last year, we have seen a decrease in lost time injuries (LTIs) from six in FY22 to three in FY23. In addition, we have reduced our total recordable injury frequency rate from 12.6 in FY22 to 10.1 in FY23.

Our commitment to establishing and maintaining a safe and healthy work environment is further set out in our Work Health and Safety Policy.

Employee Attraction and Retention

We are committed to creating a workplace that allows our people to thrive by attracting, developing and retaining the best people in agriculture. We are championing youth and women in our workforce whilst investing in learning and development programs, remuneration and reward frameworks and succession and retention models.

Our Communities


We support our rural communities by investing in local events and organisations; employing local people; supporting local businesses and tailoring our goods and services to the evolving needs of local customers and clients.  

In FY23, we provided $3.3m in sponsorships. This was directed towards community organisations, health and wellbeing projects and initiatives that promote innovation and education within the agricultural sector.
