Westpac Solomon Islands, General Manager, Mr Kutila Pinto said the new wardrobe is just another way Westpac creates pride in the workplace.

“Our people are the face of our business and are therefore critical to the success of Westpac,” he said.

“It’s so important that we generate a sense of pride and esteem in the work we do for customers through our wardrobe. Broader than that – it’s our wish to build an inclusive, flexible and diverse workplace where values-based behaviours are upheld and rewarded.” 

Customers will now be able to identify Westpac representatives through this unique uniform wardrobe, which also includes top-up options including a trouser, shirt and blouse, dress and new tailor-cut pleated red blouse each year. All uniforms have the Westpac logo embroidered on the sleeve, pocket or collar.
