VicSuper wins Victoria Day Good Corporate Citizen Award

VicSuper’s work in the community and public service space was acknowledged today at the Victorian Day Awards event, winning the Good Corporate Citizen Award for 2016.

The award recognises VicSuper’s contribution to the community through their award winning Super Woman Money Program which is a financial literacy program designed to empower women. And more recently, VicSuper has been involved in helping raise awareness of youth homelessness by partnering with Melbourne City Mission and sponsoring the Sleep At the ‘G initiative.

Nominations for the award are sought from Victorian business and the community. The Victorian Chamber of Commerce nominated VicSuper for this award. The Trustees of the Victoria Day Council, who are made up of previous Victorian of the Year Award recipients, are responsible for selecting the winners in each category.

Michael Dundon, VicSuper’s CEO said “We are thrilled to win this prestigious award. Working with the community is an integral part of our business. It allows us to be progressive, responsible and future-focused, contributing to our ultimate goal as a company of improving the financial outcome of our members during retirement and giving back to the community they live in.”

At the Awards ceremony, Michael Dundon also officially launched VicSuper’s new Corporate Responsibility Commitments. These new commitments encompass: the fund’s responsible investment agenda, how the fund contributes to financial literacy, and includes how the fund will advocate for positive environmental and social change.

The Victoria Day Awards acknowledge and recognise businesses that have stood out in the community by demonstrating excellence in areas of community and public service. The independent selection panel, made up of past winners, selected VicSuper above a number of other nominated businesses. Past winners of this award include: Cabrini, Bendigo Bank, RACV, Toyota, Visy, Jayco and Bank Australia.
