At the heart of our business is a values-based culture. We foster a culture of diversity and inclusion in which all employees contribute creative ideas, seek challenges, and have the opportunity to grow. Our diverse and inclusive workforce positions the company to grow, enhances our presence in diverse markets, and helps us build enduring relationships with each other, industry partners, and our clients. We seek to maintain the highest ethical standards in the industry.
Our results are best achieved from teams made up of individuals with different backgrounds, skills and passions in our offices and on our project sites. Inclusion is leveraging these differences to build a foundation for personal and professional growth. A culture of innovation encourages and seeks new ideas and experiences, values and engages everyone.
Georgiou's diversity is not only reflected in its people and what we do, but also by its long history, the businesses we manage and the communities in which we operate.
In addition to the broader diversity program, Georgiou has two supporting committees:
RAP Committee - which aims to identify strategic or operational initiatives that support the inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities.
Employee Diversity and Gender Equity (EDGE) Committee - dedicated to supporting diversity in the workplace including gender, age, ethnicity, disability, and religion and ensuring that our people and culture thrives and our differences are celebrated.
Georgiou's vision for reconciliation focuses on partnerships that help the company learn from the past in order to plan a future where equality thrives.
As a company, we are committed to playing a large part, both as an organisation and group of individuals, in addressing the disadvantage and inequity experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through the way we do business and initiatives such as employment and training opportunities. It is Georgiou's desire to understand and value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures along with respecting the different values and beliefs. Georgiou's values and corporate vision - to be 'the best people to work with' - positions the company to come together and work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Georgiou's vision is to be 'the best people to work with' and the company strives to create an inclusive culture where differences are recognised and valued.
In 2012, a committee was established as an initiative to support gender diversity in the workplace. Now known as the EDGE (Employee Diversity and Gender Equity), the committee was formed to better understand the issues and opinions of men and women and support diversity in the engineering and construction industry and across all roles at Georgiou. Their mission is to provide an environment of opportunity to develop and achieve excellence while maintaining life balance.
