getting involved in our local community
The way in which we support our team, and the people in our care, is dictated by a genuine desire to make a positive impact on the world around us.
For reconciliation, our vision is a united Australia. One that values the heritage and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. A country that celebrates their achievements and contributions.
In order to achieve this, we are committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace. It’s important for us to reflect the diversity of our country, the partners we work with and the local communities.
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our care, our focus on education, recidivism and opportunity is reflected through our reintegration programs and partnerships with Indigenous organisations such as The Torch, which provides support to Indigenous offenders and ex-offenders in Victoria through art, cultural and arts vocational programs. Another example is The Fairbridge Bindjareb Project, which provides trainee employment opportunities through the integration of industry training and bespoke support programs. These kinds of initiative lead to real, guaranteed jobs and sustainable careers in mining and related industries.
We have also introduced an Induction Cultural Awareness Training Program for all new staff. G4S’s 2,000 Australia-based employees will also partake in this program, as we strive to continually improve our overall cultural awareness.
