1 Total Revenue less Total Operating Expenses less Total Employee Related Costs (TERC) divided by TERC. As reported to DJSI.

2 Total employees includes both direct employees of CIMIC Group and a proportion of the headcount of indirect employees from investments as follows: BICC (45%), Devine (59%) and Ventia (47%) as at 31 December 2018.

3 Total personnel costs divided by the total number of direct employees. For 2014, the ratio is based on continuing operations and total employees of 36,512. Ratio is distorted because it includes redundancy cost and most of the redundancies occurred in the second half of the year, thereby inflating the ratio.

4 Given that a large proportion of the workforce is hired on a project basis, overall employee turnover rates are not an effective method to measure staff retention. Therefore, turnover rates including only permanently employed staff has been provided.

5 This figure is measured at year end, CIMIC had one female for most of the 2016 year.

6 Number for, and from, 2017 includes employees and subcontractors reflecting increased data capture.

7 Includes Indigenous employees of the John Holland Group and Services businesses, which were divested in 2014.
