I attended a training course on mental health and how to look after your own as well as other's mental health. I also know that the company will make decisions on which projects we will and won't work on based on what we think is of true benefit to the community.
Holds events such as the Bridge Building competition with high school students and supports local charities.
One day of volunteer paid leave per year, which is great for outside interests and causes. Plenty of charity fundraisers within each office, and awareness campaigns for a wide range of issues.
The company supports socially responsible companies/ organisations such as Engineers Without Borders, Power of Engineering, and has fundraising events throughout the year. It could improve by actively encouraging staff to participate in not-for-profit companies working with disadvantaged communities or working with subbies with a strong focus on socially disadvantaged groups.
Recently, Aurecon offices across the ANZ region were heavily promoting the Movember initiative for positive causes.
We have whole teams dedicated to environment and planning (sustainability is a sub-set of that team) and future/ alternative energies.
I have worked on something for the environment, health and wellbeing, mindfulness and other projects for university students. It's been amazing.
