We encourage flexible working because everyone leads different lives and has different needs. Our employees are able to work from home, work flexible hours, job share and take career breaks. According to our 2015 Global Employee Engagement Survey, 41% of our employees work flexibly.
An inclusive leader seeks out different perspectives for decision making and actively creates a workplace where diversity is valued. ‘Inclusiveness’ is about making sure all our people’s voices are heard and valued. This helps us attract and retain the best people, and to get better solutions for our business and customers.
We are committed to a level playing field, giving women and men the same chance to succeed. We have a range of policies and programs that include flexible work, best practice paid parental leave, and other family benefits. Our targeted programs support emerging and current female leaders in achieving their career aspirations.
We have had 60 CareerTrackers interns working with Lendlease businesses since 2011. In 2014 we signed a 10 year partnership with CareerTrackers, along with 10 other corporate organisations.
Since 2012 over 60 of our employees have joined AIME mentors and mentees to work with Year 11 and 12 students on their career goals, job skills and exposure to different thinking through 'Windows to the Future' sessions.
