Speak Up.

Defence Bank’s purpose is to serve those who protect us. Our purpose is supported by principles which guide how we communicate, make decisions, and go about our business.

Living our principles – Accountable, Collaborative, Transparent – means speaking up where you have a genuine, legitimate concern about serious misconduct, dishonesty, illegal activity, or something that doesn’t feel right. It also means encouraging others to speak up.

All Defence Bank employees (current and former, including directors and managers) and external parties (such as auditors, contractors, consultants, members, and suppliers) are encouraged to speak up. Family members of any of the above can also speak up.

For further information on what type of wrongdoing you can report and the reporting channels available, please refer to the Defence Bank Whistleblower Protection Policy.
