we do employee people from all walks of life and tailor a work environment according to their specific needs
Relatively large female representation (unusual for an engineering company)
Focus on improving relationships with indigenous community, no specific preference or quota to fill certain demographics when hiring, which I strongly agree with. The best applicant gets hired.
I have not seen anything within the company that suggests there are any issues in this respect.
Orica appears to be working hard to maximise diversity, though I would not be in a position to comment on how they compare to other companies in the same industry
What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
offers scholarships where applicable
When I undertook vacation work, I worked alongside a girl of aboriginal descent who had been assisted into a role with Orica through an external agency. Again, this is not an area I have a great deal of knowledge in.
