Inclusive Within the Workplace and Community
Our key objective is to ensure we have a truly inclusive workplace where every individual can shine regardless of gender, culture, identity, age, work style, or approach.
We leverage the value of diversity for all our stakeholders to deliver the best client experience and the best for project outcomes. We support and improve equality outcomes in the workplace and take a leadership position on diversity practices.
All employees are equally represented, valued, and rewarded by implementing workplace flexibility that accommodates differences in the background, perspectives, and family responsibilities of all employees.
In our endeavour to focus on the social aspects of inclusivity and equity and access for people of all abilities, we partner with not-for-profit organisations, social enterprises, Victorian Aboriginal businesses, and Australian Disability Enterprises to address our social responsibility.
Building Engineering’s Social and Sustainable Procurement Policy and Framework is our commitment to achieving “triple bottom line” excellence, that is, driving positive economic, community, and environmental outcomes through social and environmentally sustainable procurement processes, while identifying and implementing workforce initiatives that provide opportunities to economically and socially disadvantaged Australians.
Power of Diversity and Equality
A progressive and dynamic company with a strong equal opportunity focus, Building Engineering has established a Diversity Working Group tasked with shaping and championing diversity strategies. The working group supports the implementation of key initiatives to ensure our Equity and Diversity Policy is a reality. We recognise the value of individual differences and manage them in a modern workplace.
Commitment to our RAP
Building Engineering has in place a Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), endorsed by Reconciliation Australia in May 2021. Our RAP Working Group meets regularly to ensure initiatives are constantly progressing to promote inclusive employment for Victorian Aboriginal people.
Through Kangan Institute’s Indigenous Education Centre, the Building Engineering team undertake Indigenous Cultural Awareness Training, and partner with cultural advisor Indigenous Cultural Connections, to ensure we provide culturally safe workplaces. This has included the implementation of an internship program to provide opportunities for Victorian Aboriginal people.
