Diversity & Inclusion at John Holland
John Holland is committed to building, valuing and promoting diversity and inclusiveness across our business. We know that diverse perspectives result in greater innovation and better decisions and help us to remain one of Australia’s most recognised and respected construction brands.
Diversity and inclusiveness are about recognising, respecting and valuing differences based on all of the elements that make each human being unique. It is about creating a culture whereby different perspectives can be heard and fully leveraged to create sustainable success.
Since commencing our first project in the 1949 we have taken our responsibility to our people seriously. We work hard to employ, motivate and develop outstanding people – regardless of their gender, age or ethnic background.
John Holland employs a dedicated Diversity & Inclusion Manager and promotes three diversity and inclusion principles:
- Our employees are encouraged to be the best they can be. We embrace the unique diversity, skills and perspectives of all employees. We foster a safe, equitable, culturally appropriate and inclusive working environment that allows everyone to achieve their full potential
- Our employees are treated fairly and with respect. We treat everyone fairly and equitably and acknowledge the wealth of experience, knowledge, skills and ideas they bring. We embrace a culture that encourages constructive debate. We listen, engage with and understand our employees as unique individuals
- We are all responsible for diversity and inclusion. Achieving workplace diversity and building an inclusive culture is the responsibility of every employee in John Holland
