We are committed to driving diversity in the workplace and facilitating an environment that is fair and inclusive for all employees. We believe the benefits provided by a balanced workforce, including in relation to culture and management style, make us a more attractive place to work for all employees.
As is typical of organisations in our industry, the ability to achieve a diverse workforce in the corporate environment is much easier than achieving this balance in operations and project delivery. From an operational perspective, our focus has therefore been at the grass-roots level, encouraging female apprentices to grow their career with us. This strategy has been successful, with a number of female apprentices now in our business. Going forward, we will continue to identify and support suitable candidates to join us in trade and operations roles onsite and in our fabrication facilities.
We are committed to fostering an environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people are valued and respected. Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), developed in partnership with Reconciliation Australia, provides a roadmap for us to build positive, sustainable relationships with ATSI people and their communities.
The RAP identifies practical actions based on the three pillars of Relationships, Respect and Opportunities. Its intent is to provide employment, training and commercial partnership opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, businesses and community organisations and to develop a better understanding of cross-cultural sensitivities to drive positive relationships.
