Supporting safety, our people and communities

Our combined investment in people, innovation and digital integration is transforming our team, how we work, and what we achieve for our clients and communities. 

Safety is our priority 

Putting the health, safety and wellbeing of our teams and people we interact with first is an essential part of our culture. It underpins everything we do and reflects our determination to ensure that people under our care are safe and respected.

Our safety objectives are to:

  • eliminate fatalities and disabling injuries and reduce all other injuries
  • create a workplace that values diversity and is respectful and inclusive
  • promote employee physical and mental wellbeing.

Our operating companies each drive significant health, safety and wellbeing programs designed to keep critical risks and behaviours front-of-mind. They also leverage data and shared experiences to identify priority areas for improvement and contribute measurably to safety and health advances in our industries.

We also work to embed a safety legacy into the assets, infrastructure and resources projects we deliver – safeguarding the people who will operate, maintain and use them into the future. Find out more about safety and health at CIMIC.

Supporting our people

We aim to cultivate an inclusive workplace, based on fairness and equity, which fosters the unique skills and talent of our people. We celebrate the differences people bring to the Group. Diversity enriches our Operating Companies and fosters greater creativity, performance, and business growth.

Living our Code of Conduct, we do not tolerate harassment, discrimination, bullying, vilification, occupational violence, or victimisation on any grounds, whether by race, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, age, religion, colour, national extraction, social origin, political opinion, disability, family or carer’s responsibilities, or pregnancy. 

We actively develop supportive workplaces with initiatives including extended paid parental leave, a decentralised approach to flexible working, outstanding employee benefits and a range of training programs that reinforce our Code of Conduct and build cultural awareness.

In parallel we are upskilling our on-site teams, supporting effective delivery as we innovate and implement new technologies, methods, and materials. 

We provide pathways for new industry entrants to join us through graduate employment, scholarships, apprenticeships, internships, and local recruitment and training programs.

Experience sits alongside new skill sets, as we continue to improve how we work and develop our increasingly diverse teams. Together, we are working smarter to leave an enduring legacy. Come join us.

Supporting our community

We are part of the community. Our local employment and participation programs are opening doors for people changing careers, making a new start, or who’ve faced barriers such as unemployment and skill gaps. 

We have established our own training academies and programs, collaborating with industry bodies such as Engineers Australia, TAFE and universities to develop accelerated courses to upskill and cross-skill our people and trainees. 

Our local procurement strategy is diversifying our supply chain and the people working alongside our business.

Our partnerships with community organisations such as Clontarf, CareerTrackers and CareerSeekers are providing new education and entry pathways for new team members and suppliers.

We continue to improve gender diversity. Today women represent approximately 30% of our Graduates. We are working towards women holding 20% of management and senior management positions by 2025 and striving for gender balance with our graduates and trainees. 

And we invest in our local communities’ critical needs, recently contributing more than $1 million to support a range of community programs – including disaster relief.
