CIMIC Group is committed to achieving an inclusive workplace and one of the ways we are acting on this commitment is by running unconscious bias training workshops across the Group.
Sessions have been run across the Group’s operating companies with more than 928 leaders completing the training throughout the business.
These people are acting as important cultural ambassadors across offices and projects.
Looking forward, training will be progressively delivered to a broader range of people to further the Group’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
By definition, a bias is an inclination or prejudice for or against a person or group.
By being aware of inherent biases, managers can make clearer decisions that yield better results for teams and projects.
The information we accumulate and process unconsciously has a significant impact on the decisions we make.
The more we are aware of these unconscious biases, the more we can optimise their influence and make better decisions to ensure safe, high performing work environments, free of harassment, bullying and discrimination.
