Diversity & Inclusion
Lendlease is all about creating places where people feel comfortable in their environment, allowing us all to be the best we can be. A diverse and inclusive workplace not only means people feel valued, it helps build a better, stronger and more innovative Lendlease.
Our global inclusion strategy is focused on embedding flexible work; achieving gender equity; and building an inclusive workplace.
Lendlease encourages flexibility because everyone leads different lives and has different needs. Our flexible work policy provides for arrangements such as flexible working hours, moving to part-time hours and/or job sharing.
Lendlease is committed to a level playing field so everyone has an equal chance of success. We are focused on ensuring all our processes, policies and opportunities are fair and equitable for all.
When people feel valued and included it helps build a better, stronger and more innovative Lendlease. We are supporting our leaders to play a more active role in having an open mind, listening to all opinions, being aware of our biases and setting people up for success.
