NAB is behind the initiative, outlining that the intention of the move is to enable employees to visit bushfire-affected communities and support local businesses immediately.

All of NAB’s 30,000 employees will be able to access the extra day of annual leave, with the bank granting them the ability to take a long weekend or a day trip anywhere in Australia that has been impacted by recent bushfires.

According to a statement, employees will be provided with a list of bushfire-affected communities across Australia to visit, ranging from Gippsland in Victoria, the New South Wales south coast and Kangaroo Island to the Adelaide Hills in South Australia and South East Queensland.

CEO Ross McEwan said the move was in response to calls from colleagues and customers on the “enormous economic challenge” that bushfire-affected communities face.

“By giving NAB employees an extra day’s leave, we hope to help businesses such as cafés, restaurants, tour operators, hotels and other accommodation providers to get back on their feet,” he explained.

“Focusing on the recovery and rebuilding of these communities is critical, and this initiative is another way NAB can play a role to support today and in the weeks and months ahead.”
