Our community contribution

We’ve been protecting Australians for 150 years, and we believe in the power of community. So we’re always looking to give back in other ways through our Community Foundation. 

The TAL Community Foundation launched in 2015 to better coordinate and amplify the help we provide to the community. Since then, the Foundation has made a real difference through monetary donations and skills-based volunteering in three focus areas:

  • helping children from disadvantaged backgrounds,
  • supporting Indigenous communities, and
  • promoting positive mental health. 

Beyond our dollar matching programs for donations, we also support community days where our people dedicate their time to support a charity of their choosing. Last year our people contributed nearly 250 days of community volunteering. 

The way we work together

Together, we achieve so much more than we ever could alone.

At TAL we understand the value of teamwork and that’s why Our Spirit focuses on the way we work with our customers, partners, communities and each other. 

Our Spirit comes to life through four qualities:

  • Aiming higher.
    We love punching above our weight to succeed. We work together to find bold new ways to solve problems and make a meaningful difference.
  • Doing the right thing.
    The easy way out doesn’t work for us. We believe in fairness, and being accountable for our actions. We show we care by taking our responsibilities seriously.
  • Being straightforward.
    We say what we mean and mean what we say. We respect each other, our customers and our partners, on a mission to cut out confusion and complexity whenever we encounter it.
  • Getting it done.
    We never give up. We’ll go further than anyone else to deliver the best outcomes for our customers and partners. 

The qualities of Our Spirit were developed with our people. By embedding this culture into every part of our business, we continue to set ourselves apart.
