We work collaboratively to build long term relationships that reward partners, benefit consumers and support communities.  Our focus is to help our partners grow their businesses and achieve success.

We are here to serve our communities by ensuring Australians have access to the full range of PBS medicines, via community pharmacies and hospital pharmacies, regardless of where they live.  To help shape the future of delivering pharmacy care in Australia, we work together with our suppliers and customers to continuously implement value-added, cost-effective wholesaling and distribution solutions.

Health and Wellbeing

Our health and wellbeing programs are aimed at improving team members health, both mentally and physically. We do this by offering a range of resources, services and tools through our Sum of Wellbeing app, our Employee Assistance program, influenza vaccination program, and various other programs offered throughout the year.

Developing Your Career

One of our initiatives within the Sigma Diversity and Inclusion plan involves a more structured program to support developing the capability of female leaders at Sigma. The Women in Leadership Program includes participation in a masterclass with women from other organisations, and group coaching sessions with the Sigma cohort where the learnings and actions from the masterclass are reinforced and experiences are shared.
