Creating landmark projects around the world

Every day, people around the world live, work, shop, play or travel via an asset created by Lendlease.

Founded in Sydney in 1958, our company was born out of a vision to successfully combine the disciplines of financing, property development and investment.  
 
Since the beginning, Lendlease has played a role in creating landmark places around the world. We create places that leave a positive legacy with a focus on safety, innovation and sustainability, delivered by people who are respected for who they are and what they do.  
 
A small sample of the calibre of our projects and capabilities includes:

  • The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a tribute to the lives lost after the attacks on September 11, 2001. We were privileged to return to the World Trade Center site in New York to deliver the landmark project. 
  • Malaysia’s Petronas Twin Towers was the tallest building in the world at the time of completion. Lendlease was the project manager for this iconic development, spanning 40 hectares and located in the heart of the Golden Triangle at Kuala Lumpur City Centre. 
  • Sydney Opera House is one of the most recognisable buildings of the twentieth century. Civil & Civic Contractors (later acquired by Lendlease) constructed stage I of the building, the entire structure below its iconic sails. Baulderstone (acquired by Lendlease in 2011) also played a key role in the construction of the Opera House.   
  • Tate Britain has been home to British art for more than 100 years. Lendlease delivered international standards through the upgrade and refurbishment work on the north and south quadrants of the gallery.
  • In 1984 Lendlease won the contract to restore the Statue of Liberty in New York in advance of its 1986 centennial.

Disruptive technologies and impact on property industry
At Lendlease we design beyond the physical environment.  
Our aim is to integrate digital layers into the built environment, enhancing connectedness by reducing friction and enabling discovery.

By harnessing innovative and emerging digital technology we can dynamically respond to individual and asset needs. This will allow residents to monitor the performance of their homes, and our building managers to adjust the way our building can operate to cater to peak needs when this is required.

Lendlease is focused on leveraging disruptive technologies to unlock value across four key areas:
  1. Improved customer experiences, productivity, safety, health and wellbeing. 
  2. Enhanced operational efficiency, sustainability and reduced lifecycle costs for assets. 
  3. Increased asset value and new sustainable revenue streams through the creation of new products and services. 
  4. Improved and accelerated design and construction processes.
Lendlease is already embracing disruptive technologies to improve the performance and sustainability of its assets.
  • International Towers Sydney, Barangaroo – Intelligent software platform and real time 3D visualisation enabling improved building performance, operational transparency and efficiencies. 
  • Lendlease Communities, Yarrabilba (QLD) – A living lab that includes multiple Internet of Things (IoT) sensors and devices improving water consumption, energy consumption, safety and resident information.
  • Lendlease Retail – Artificial intelligence and advanced analytics software platform improving energy consumption whilst enabling condition based and predictive maintenance for retail assets. 
  • Alkimos Beach (WA) Battery Storage – Community trial is underway to demonstrate the benefits that can be unlocked from building sustainable energy solutions into our projects.

Diversity & Inclusion

To Lendlease, diversity simply means difference – difference in thinking, background, culture, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity and other life experiences. We acknowledge that while diversity is a fact, inclusion is a choice.

Embracing diversity and fostering inclusion is fundamental to how we behave, day to day. This is simply the right thing to do. We achieve better outcomes by encouraging difference and working together.

  • We empower our leaders to be inclusive and address bias to make better decisions.  
  • We are committed to a level playing field, giving everyone the same chance to succeed.  
  • We encourage flexible ways of working to support different needs, priorities and lifestyles.
In 2016, we conducted our first diversity and inclusion survey in Australia. We identified that 68 per cent of respondents had worked flexibly in the previous 12 months, including varied start and finish times, swapping workdays or working from home.

Lendlease has received a citation in The Workplace Gender Equality Agency 2016 WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality (EOCGE). This citation recognises employer commitment and best practice in promoting gender equality in Australian workplaces. In 2016, Lendlease is one of only 110 companies to receive this citation in Australia out of circa 5,000 employers.

Lendlease is an active member of a number of forums supporting broader diversity and inclusion conversations across the workplace.
  • Lendlease is a corporate member of the Diversity Council Australia (DCA), an independent, not for profit workplace diversity advisor. Our membership provides access to leading research and regular events held by DCA.
  • Lendlease is a corporate member of the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI), the national association representing human resource and people management professionals. Lendlease won the 2014 AHRI Inclusion & Diversity Award for LGBTI Inclusion.
  • Lendlease is a proud sponsor of the Australian Network on Disability (AND) and is currently working with this peak organisation to develop our Accessibility Action Plan.
  • Lendlease is a corporate member of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) and supports NAWIC events in each state throughout the year, including the annual NAWIC awards.
  • Lendlease is a founding member of Pride in Diversity, the national not for profit employer support program for LGBTI workplace inclusion.

Gateway cities
Our aim is to have a presence in the cities we believe will be the most resilient and best performing around the world. 

These ‘gateway cities’ can typically withstand property and economic cycles better than other cities. 

To form this view, we undertook an extensive global study and applied a number of filters. We then evaluated key metrics including economic, business climate and capital market indicators. 

This narrowed our focus to 38 global cities which were filtered on additional metrics such as demographics, property fundamentals, geopolitical risks and Lendlease’s presence in a particular market. 

These cities were also reviewed from a health and safety perspective, meaning any future opportunities, irrespective of potential commercial returns, will only ever be taken on if we can commit to applying Lendlease’s Global Minimum Requirements (GMRs). 

The process identified an initial 17 gateway cities for Lendlease to pursue our urbanisation projects.  We currently have a presence in 15 of our 17 gateway cities. 

Playing into the breadth of Lendlease’s skill set, these cities typically contain large sites ripe for regeneration and infrastructure upgrades. 

Gateway cities include London, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

Gender pay gap
Equity is important to Lendlease. We have committed significant resources to understanding what causes gender pay gaps and how to best address them. 

Lendlease employs circa 12,000 people across our diverse business operations and we are committed to ensuring gender equity is a reality for everyone within our company. Over the last six years, Lendlease has actively worked towards achieving our gender pay equity goals through a range of in-depth reviews, processes and communications. 
  
As Lendlease Group CEO and Managing Director Steve McCann shared in the Male Champions of Change Closing the Gender Pay Gap report: "There is no excuse for men to be paid more than women for work that has the same accountability, breadth and difficulty, and for which they have comparable performance, competence and experience.”  
  
Steve McCann is a Pay Equity Ambassador for Equal Pay Day.

Infrastructure Investment in Australia

Urbanisation and population growth are driving the need for improved productivity, creating strong demand for social and economic infrastructure.

Worldwide, infrastructure spending is expected to grow from US$4 trillion per year in 2012 to more than US$9 trillion per year by 2025.

Lendlease has a strong infrastructure solutions capability in Australia with $3.1 billion of Engineering backlog revenue. We have delivered major projects, such as the Anzac Bridge, Regional Rail Link and significant sections of the Pacific, Hume and Bruce Highways within Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. 

A number of Lendlease’s engineering and building projects are funded via Public Private Partnerships. These partnerships are initiated through our Infrastructure Development business. Lendlease can partner with governments and private institutions to deliver solutions that meet the needs of growing cities and regions in Australia.

Our Australian Engineering backlog revenue sits at $3.1 billion (as at 30 June 2017). Major projects include:

  • Northern Connector (South Australia)
  • NorthConnex M1/M2 Tunnel (New South Wales)
  • Oxley Highway to Kundabung, Pacific Highway (New South Wales)
  • CityLink Tulla Widening (Victoria)
  • Caulfield to Dandenong (Victoria)

Marriage Equality
Lendlease has long supported equality in the many countries in which we operate. In March 2016, Lendlease reinforced our company position by supporting Australian Marriage Equality and their campaign around marriage equality.   

We are proud to have an industry leading global diversity and inclusion policy which promotes an inclusive and respectful environment for all our employees and stakeholders. We respect the rights of all individuals to form their own views on matters such as marriage equality.

For the sixth year running Lendlease has been recognised as a top employer in the Australian Workplace Equality Index for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) inclusion.

Lendlease is a founding member of ’Pride In Diversity’ in Australia, and in the United States our business has received a citation for the last two years on LGBTI inclusion.

Mental Health

Lendlease is committed to the health and safety of its people and those who work with us, and we have been acknowledged externally for our focus on providing healthy workplaces.

Lendlease is certified as a ‘Global Healthy Workplace’ for 2017 to 2019 in recognition of our focus on employee health & wellbeing. This certification was granted by the Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces in October 2017. In addition, Lendlease won the multinational employer category at the 6th Global Healthy Workplace Awards announced on Friday 7 September 2018 in Bergamo, Italy. 
 
We have a holistic approach to health & wellbeing, and continue to grow our focus around mental health. We know that employees are likely to experience higher levels of stress, anxiety and depression if they work in the construction sector. In Australia, construction workers are six times more likely to die by suicide than a workplace incident.   
 
Looking after the physical and mental health of our people is a significant part of the Lendlease culture. In support of this Lendlease introduced wellbeing leave in 2015 – giving all employees one day every four months to attend to health & wellbeing related needs. In FY18, 68 per cent of Lendlease employees used their Wellbeing Leave.  
 
We will continue to work with industry partners and experts to grow our knowledge in these areas, and importantly, address these health & wellbeing challenges. Today Lendlease partners with many organisations around the world including Bupa, Mental Health First Aid, Beyondblue, MATES in Construction and R U OK? to deliver our mental health programs.  
 
Our programs provide preventative support and active help to anyone who may be experiencing a mental health condition. This includes the globally recognised and accredited Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training. More than 1,150 of our employees are trained around the world in mental health first aid. We also know that over the last 12 months more than 3,000 Lendlease employees have participated in at least one mental health program around the world.  
 
Our people are also encouraged to participate in health related community initiatives including R U OK? Day, febfast, Movember and World Mental Health Day.

Safety
We are committed to the health and safety of our people. This means we focus on maintaining the health and wellbeing of our people and those who engage with our assets. 

At Lendlease, first and foremost we want to send people home in the same condition in which they came to work or visited one of our locations because it is simply the right thing to do. This is what our safety focus is all about, and safety will always be our number one priority.  

Through Lendlease’s Global Minimum Requirements (GMRs) we operate to a consistent standard across all of our operations. GMRs apply to the entire lifecycle of a project, including before we even decide to bid for a project. Our GMRs remain the foundation to our overall approach to health and safety. 

In this day and age, everyone has the right to go home safely to their families, friends and love ones, every day.  

At a Glance...
  • 90 per cent of our operations were without a critical incident in FY17. 
  • Between 2000 and 2010 Lendlease reported 69 fatalities. 
  • Between 2011 and 2015 we reported three fatalities.  
  • Lendlease reported no fatalities during 2016.

Skilling workforces
Lendlease has a long and strong tradition of skilling and training our workforce and supporting the communities in which we have a presence through improved education and employment opportunities. Our commitment to skilling and training is evident around the world.

BARANGAROO SKILLS EXCHANGE (BSX)

In Sydney, the Barangaroo Skills Exchange (BSX) has delivered skills training to 10,872* site workers to date. It was established to provide significant skilling and training to onsite workers for the construction of Barangaroo South. Students learn about the project, including safety leadership training, basic digital literacy and construction trades. The SROI evaluation estimates the BSX has created over $78.5 million** in socio-economic value for all stakeholders during the three years of operation (2013-2015). For every $1 invested in the program, $11.76 net additional social and economic benefit was generated.**

MORE MILESTONES AT OUR SKILLING & EMPLOYMENT CENTRE IN ST MARYS (SYDNEY)

Since 2005, the Skilling & Employment Centre has assisted more than 4,500 people to achieve jobs. 1,600 people have undertaken skilling courses that support job readiness in the areas of: construction, first aid, computer skills, networking, resume preparation and interview techniques.

SAFETY SUPERVISOR APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM (SSAP) IN MALAYSIA

In collaboration with Malaysia’s Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), we developed the Safety Supervisor Apprenticeship Program (SSAP). As the first formal apprenticeship collaboration between the public and private sectors in Malaysia, the program focuses on the safety needs of the construction industry.  
The structured program provides industry recognised training (encompassing both theoretical and onsite training components) through an integrated approach by Lendlease and CIDB. Those who complete the SSAP receive a formal CIDB and Lendlease SSAP qualification, as well as various certifications from the Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) and National Institute of Occupational Safety.

TRAINING ACADEMY AT PAYA LEBAR QUARTER (SINGAPORE)

At Paya Lebar Quarter, we aim to raise the bar in worker engagement and set new standards for the construction industry in Singapore. To do this, we introduced the Training Academy. Open to all workers, the daily courses covered low risk awareness and high risk tolerance topics including Frontline Leaders, Incident & Injury Free and Cranes & Lifting. With over 25,500 hours completed in FY17, new standards for worker competency have been established in the Singapore construction market.

SOUTHWARK CONSTRUCTION SKILLS CENTRE AT ELEPHANT PARK (LONDON)

We were proud to open the Southwark Construction Skills Centre at Elephant Park on 8 September 2016. The Centre is a partnership between Lendlease and Southwark Council and aims to train up to 1,000 people each year. The skills centre is made up of seven modular buildings located at the entrance to the Elephant Park site and includes classrooms, a building workshop and an outdoor training yard.

Smart cities
Lendlease believes technology and data, infrastructure and service systems can be used to enhance the way our cities work. However, our cities and urban areas need to be more than 'smart', they need to be liveable, healthy and sustainable places.

Technological solutions such as big data and the internet of things are a part of the solution but so too are strong regulatory and governance frameworks. 
 
Lendlease already uses digitisation and analytics to generate insights to improve the design and performance of the places we deliver, for example International Towers Sydney, Barangaroo. Smart solutions, including smart cities will also be delivered when urban environments and cities deliver superior environmental, social and economic outcomes for our communities. 

WHAT IS A SMART CITY? 

A smart city is where traditional networks and services are made more flexible, efficient and sustainable with the use of information, digital and telecommunications technologies, to improve how a city operates.  
 
Using data to measure and improve the performance of urban systems lies at the heart of the concept. 
 
Smart cities should provide their citizens with the following:

  • Data as a utility – providing an ability to collect, communicate and analyse data 
  • Smart Infrastructure – using smart infrastructure technologies to provide more intelligent services 
  • Smart technology enablers – using the Internet of Things to lay the groundwork for the digital economy to evolve 
  • An agile master planning system – this creates the capability to adopt and harmonise emerging innovations and disruptive technologies

A broader context needs to be considered when discussing the need for smart cities. Urbanisation is occurring at a rate faster than any time in history. 
 
The World Economic Forum has estimated that 60 per cent of the areas where the world’s urban dwellers will live in 2030 are yet to be built. According to this analysis, $US3.7 trillion will need to be invested into new infrastructure globally every year until 2050.

Sustainability

At Lendlease, Sustainability is at the heart of our vision to create the best places. 
We have a long and proud history of giving equal emphasis to environmental, social and economic outcomes. We are focused on delivering places that respond to the complex global forces shaping our future, including rapid urbanisation, climate change, inequality and resource stress.

Sustainability at Lendlease is underpinned by:

  • Environment – we respect nature and work tirelessly to reduce our environmental impact through reducing greenhouse gas emissions; using energy wisely; eliminating waste and creating more clean water than we use. We are committed to reduce our energy, water and waste usage by 20 per cent by 2020. We are also exploring more sustainable building and material alternatives. For example, International House Sydney is made of Cross Laminated Timber, which has a 40 per cent decrease in embodied carbon when compared with traditional construction materials.

  • Ethics – our history demands that we not only deliver strong returns for our security holders, but that we do so in a fair, just and equitable manner. Strong ethics in terms of the investments we make and the people we do business with are central to these beliefs. Our refusal to work with people who did not uphold our safety vision has seen us exit countries and sectors – testament to our commitment to ethically ‘doing the right thing’.  

  • Community – we are passionate about understanding and working with local people to co-create places that respect and are inclusive of all views. To help all parts of our communities to thrive, we place a strong emphasis on inclusiveness, wellbeing, employment, skilling and education. The work we do through our Reconciliation Action Plan is an example of this. In 2017, Lendlease achieved ‘Elevate’ RAP status, the highest level recognising our efforts for driving reconciliation in our sector - between 2011 and 2015, 2,500 employees and subcontractors received cultural awareness training.

    Our achievements in sustainability are acknowledged by the organisations we partner with to deliver a more sustainable built environment.

    • We are also recognised as an international leader by the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB); with five Lendlease managed funds ranked number one in the respective global or regional categories, in 2017;

    • We are a Corporate Advisory Board member of the World Green Building Council;
    • We have delivered more 6 Star Green Star outcomes than any other company (as recognised by the Green Building Council of Australia);
    • We have been listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (World) for 16 years; and
    • We are signatories to the United Nations Global Compact.

    More information on our sustainability approach can be found at: https://www.lendlease.com/company/sustainability/

  • Tax
    At Lendlease, we’re proud to make a positive social, environmental and economic contribution to the regions in which we operate. We’re also committed to strong corporate governance policies and practices, which are fundamental to the long term success of the company. 

    This includes complying with all relevant tax laws and maintaining open and respectful relationships with relevant tax authorities. 
     
    We’re also committed to not participating in tax evasion or aggressive tax planning, or providing tax advice to third parties. 
     
    In 2017, approximately 23 per cent of Lendlease’s earnings were derived from our regional businesses in Asia, Europe and the Americas, and approximately 77 per cent was generated from operations in Australia. Corporate tax is paid by Lendlease Corporation Limited (and its subsidiaries) in line with the relevant corporate tax law of the jurisdiction in which income is generated.   
     
    The corporate tax rates applying to our regional businesses differ to the Australian corporate tax rate of 30 per cent. Some jurisdictions in which Lendlease operates have corporate tax rates higher than Australia (eg United States and Japan); while other jurisdictions have lower corporate tax rates (eg Singapore and United Kingdom).

    Urban Regeneration
    Lendlease's vision is to create the best places   
    Statistics show that more than 60 per cent of the world's population will live in urban communities by 2030.

    We love cites and at Lendlease we're experts at creating the best places through urban regeneration.

    Lendlease is proud to be an industry leader in designing and building sustainable, innovative and vibrant city places, reflecting the commitment of our founder Dick Dusseldorp to create positive environmental and social impacts.

    Lendlease’s integrated business model and international scale makes this vision possible. We invest, we develop and we build. We partner with cities, their governments and communities to transform city centres to foster a deeper connection between people and place. We've been doing this for more than 50 years.

    Our strategy targets 17 of the world’s gateway cities in Australia, Asia, Europe and North America. Today, Lendlease has a presence in 15 of these 17 gateway cities.

    These cities serve as the main point of entrance to a region. They are cities that promise strong performance and a resilience to the ups and downs of the property, economic and political cycles. They also typically contain large inner urban sites where infrastructure upgrades are often overdue.  

    At a Glance... 

    • Urban Regeneration pipeline of $34.6 billion – 70 per cent of our global development pipeline is made up of urban regeneration projects.
    • Lendlease has 13 major urbanisation projects underway across eight gateway cities. Each project has an end value of more than $1 billion.
    • 98 per cent of our major urban development projects have achieved, or are targeting, green certification 
    • Some of our major urban regeneration projects around the world include:
      • In Australia – Darling Square (Sydney), Barangaroo (Sydney), Brisbane Showgrounds, Victoria Harbour, Melbourne Quarter and Waterbank (Perth).
      • In London – Elephant Park, International Quarter London
      • In the United States – Riverline (Chicago), Clippership Wharf (Boston)
      • In Asia – Paya Lebar Quarter (Singapore), Tun Ruzak Exchange Lifestyle Quarter (Kuala Lumpur) 
    • In FY17 Lendlease secured two new urban regeneration projects – one each in Milan and San Francisco

    Vision for reconciliation
    Our vision for reconciliation remains one that drives all our employees to acknowledge and celebrate the proud heritage of Australia’s First Peoples and promotes opportunities for career development, sustainable business growth and economic participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

    Lendlease's second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), ‘Building Respect: Past, Present, Future 2016 – 2018’, expands on our commitment to Indigenous participation and has achieved an ‘Elevate’ status level by Reconciliation Australia. Our Elevate RAP applies three goals to our Australian operations:  

      1. All Lendlease employees in Australia will be invited to participate in cultural awareness and engagement learning.  

      • We are advanced in delivering face to face learning, and we are working towards achieving our 2018 goal of providing 100 per cent of Australian employees with cultural learning experiences through online and immersion opportunities.  
      • We have supported the development of Arrilla Digital, an online cultural awareness and learning platform to be made available to all Australian employees to provide a baseline of cultural understanding.  

      2. We will increase the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in our Australian business.  

      • Approximately two per cent of our Australian employees are Indigenous.  
      • We have four formal partnerships with organisations that work to improve attendance and completion rates of young Indigenous people at school, university and other education institutions. This will help to create a future pipeline of Indigenous Lendlease employees.  

      3. We will increase procurement from, and support the development of, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses in Australia.  

      • Lendlease was announced as a finalist in two categories of the 2017 Supply Nation National Indigenous Procurement Awards – Corporate Partner of the Year and Procurement Professional of the Year.
      • Procurement from certified Indigenous business (products and services) was in excess of $26 million in FY17.  

    CareerTrackers  

    CareerTrackers is a national not for profit organisation that creates internship opportunities for Indigenous university students. 74  CareerTrackers interns have worked at Lendlease since 2011. Of these interns, eight have completed their studies and converted to full time employment at Lendlease, 16 are working casually while studying and 10 have secured a place on our 2018 Graduate Program.  
     
    Bourke NSW Aboriginal Community  

    We are working with the Bourke NSW Aboriginal Community as part of a collective collaboration, including the participation and support of the NSW Government, to prove that a justice reinvestment approach can prevent more young Aboriginal people from entering the justice system. The project aims to reduce the $4 million annual cost to the NSW Government by incarcerating fewer young people from Bourke.  
     
    Lendlease Executive Lead for Indigenous Engagement and RAP, Cath Brokenborough, plays a pro-bono facilitation role working with the Bourke Aboriginal community to develop a design and delivery program of community-led housing. An initial two houses were designed, built and sold to Aboriginal families. Lendlease continues to work with the community to scope the next stage of the program.

    Workplace of the future
    Business performance is driven by many factors. Strategy, people and culture are critical ingredients – the workplace is where culture happens, people connect and strategy comes to life. Traditional corporate workplaces have evolved significantly and will continue to reshape with changes in technology and work styles.

    Lendlease’s approach to creating the best workplaces starts with listening and observing, and only then creating. The Lendlease workplace team has recorded nearly 2 million unique observations over the last three years on interior space utilisation.

    Our extensive experience in creating modern and adaptive workplaces over the last 10 years has taught us that the best places to work are an interplay of factors, including location, the amenity and its technology capabilities, its surrounds and human touch points.

    Many of Lendlease’s workplaces, including our flagship headquarters at Barangaroo, in Sydney, showcase our abilities in creating workplaces that support purposeful interactions, inspire greater collaboration, promote a sense of belonging and encourage greater health and wellness.

    Lendlease continues to raise the bar by delivering internationally recognised workplaces both for itself and external clients including CBA, Westpac, Telstra, Google and Amgen. In fact, CBA and Westpac have both won industry awards, in recognition of workplaces created by Lendlease.   
     

    ABOUT OUR BARANGAROO WORKPLACE 

    Our workplace is an investment in Lendlease, our people and our future.

    Workplaces within our Barangaroo headquarters give our people options, including spaces to think and reflect, connect, collaborate and innovate. Everyone has a 'neighbourhood' – a place where they belong with their team, providing social cohesion. And every day our people can choose where they work, depending on the type of work they need to do. This is team based working, the first of its kind.

    Our workplaces also encourage healthier choices – with more ways for people to move around, work standing, enjoy more natural light and even take the stairs instead of lifts to move between floors. Barangaroo is a showcase of who we are, what we do and how we do it.

    Lendlease’s Barangaroo workplace has ranked in the top 6 per cent of workplaces surveyed globally for workplace design, functionality and effectiveness, earning the Leesman+ accreditation* for exceptional performance in workplace design, delivery, management and operational effectiveness.

    Our Barangaroo workplace achieved an overall workplace effectiveness (Lmi*) score of 74.1, 13 points above the Leesman average of workplaces surveyed globally.  This score ranks us in the top 6 per cent, or one of only 44 companies, to earn the Leesman+ accreditation.

    *The Leesman Index is the largest independent collection of workplace effectiveness data in the world. Workplace users are surveyed, and benchmarked against 1,290 other workplaces in their global database. 

    Based on 467 Lendlease survey respondents, our Barangaroo workplace achieved an overall workplace effectiveness (Lmi*) score of 74.1, 13 points above the Leesman average of workplaces surveyed globally. This score ranks us in the top 6 per cent, or one of only 44 companies, to earn the Leesman+ accreditation. 

    Other highlights include:
    • More than 92 per cent of our people are proud to bring visitors to our workplace, compared to the Leesman benchmark of 50.9 per cent.
    • Over 73 per cent of people feel the workplace enables them to work productively, exceeding the Leesman benchmark of 56.7 per cent. 
    • Over 94 per cent of people said the design of the workplace was important to them.  
    • Over 88 per cent of people believe the culture of Lendlease is supportive to working in a mobile/flexible way and the technology, tools and infrastructure enable this.
