Since 1981, Australian Catholic Superannuation has helped people who work in Catholic education, healthcare, aged care and welfare plan for their future by providing excellent superannuation, insurance, retirement planning and financial planning services.
The organisation supports more than 93,000 members and over 13,000 contributing employers with more than $8.8 billion in funds under management.
Australian Catholic Superannuation is self-administered, meaning the administration of all contributions and benefit payments are handled internally focussing on delivering member outcomes and excellence in customer service.
Guided by the values Australian Catholic Superannuation shares with their members, they provide a superannuation service that focuses on providing excellent retirement planning outcomes. It is the super fund of choice for the Catholic sector, and as a public offer fund, it is open to anyone who is eligible for super.
Their mission is to provide our members with appropriate superannuation benefits, which make a positive contribution to their retirement strategies and goals. To achieve this, fees are kept low, investing responsibly and offering members access to additional benefits through their partner network.
As dividends are not paid to shareholders, all profits go back to members in the form of improved services and support, strong investment performance, a variety of choice in investments, self-service over-the-phone access, secure online portals, free seminars and workplace visits.
To improve productivity, improve efficiency and enhance the employee experience, Australian Catholic Superannuation created an inaugural intranet site, SuperHub, which was launched to all staff in December 2018. SuperHub is now the new communication platform and digital workspace providing a new way of working for all employees, further developing the organisational culture by improving communication, knowledge management, efficiency and productivity.
Australian Catholic Superannuation ensures effective remuneration by conducting independent and external benchmarking annually to ensure remuneration is comparable and competitive within the markets in which they operate. The Voice engagement survey found that Australian Catholic Superannuation is 25% higher than the Australian Financial Services norm and 22% higher than the Australian National Norm when it comes to reward and recognition. This standout result looked at the use of monetary and non-monetary rewards to foster high engagement.
