Keeping your life in balance

Support, wellbeing and flexibility

24/7 confidential counselling and support service
Life is not always perfect. Sometimes you need help, advice or simply someone to talk to. BHP provides employees and their immediate families with free access to 24/7 confidential counselling and support through our Employee Assistance Programs.

Easy to access mental health and wellbeing programs
Because your mental health and wellbeing is paramount, BHP provides access to helpful resources to support the ongoing mental health and wellbeing of our employees and contractors, and their family members.

Flexible working arrangements
Flexible work means different things to different people - it might mean job sharing, specific roster patterns, working part-time, returning from parental leave, different start and finish times or simply working from home now and then. Location and role dependent, BHP endeavours to keep the conversation open for its employees so we can do our best to support you and your circumstances.

Looking after future you and our world


World-class global employee share plan
Have you always wanted to be a shareholder in the company you work for? Then BHP is the place for you. Our world-class Shareplus plan enables employees to become a shareholder, essentially an owner, in BHP so you can share in our success. And for each share purchased and held after three years, BHP will match it on a one-for-one basis.

Matched giving for charities
Your charitable contributions can make an even stronger impact with BHP's global Matched Giving Program. BHP doubles personal donations made by employees, meaning that for every dollar donated by an employee, BHP donates another two.

Strengthened by our diversity

At BHP, we know we are strengthened by diversity. We are committed to providing a work environment in which everyone is included, treated fairly and with respect; fostering a supportive culture where you can bring your whole self to work. We are committed to providing a recruitment process that is fair, equitable and accessible for all.
