Diversity at WSP Australia
- Average rating for Diversity, based on 55 reviews8.3 / 10
Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.
Depends on the team
I can only comment on what I have seen (as an average white Aussie born woman). There are many women in the office of both Australian decent, new Australian status and permanent citizen status as well as employees from other parts of the world on exchange.
Large emphasis on Diversity Council and hiring women in higher proportions.
Im not a part of one of those groups but from the outside it appears that they have been thought of.
The company is very diverse and really stands behind its women moving forward
we're pretty good at this stuff.
WSP has a good balance between men and woman and I feel the hiring standard is excellent.
Company strongly focuses on diversity when hiring
Female diversity marketing campaign has run for 12 months, and i think ethnic minorities are always supported including ATSI. LGBT community acceptance is increasing but still quite a traditional firm in response to this.
I am not very well versed on the companys policy with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT however there is a reasonable gender balance in the workplace and my fellow graduate engineers are a solid 50/50 mix.
WE have a diversity strategy.
I do not feel being singled out or excluded in any form
Attempting to improve on diversity are gradually showing.
Finding a diversified software team is difficult but they try.
The company prides itself on diversity.
Definitely no issues in terms of recruitment, etc. Just a fact that in my team I am the youngest and only female.
Diversity seems sufficient
I believe WSP is extremely welcoming and the diversity council really helps with engagement and knowledge.
Seem to be standard diversity goals
No one is discriminated against as such, but there is always room for improvement
It's about 50/50 with males to females in the Environment sector, there is a diverse range of ethnicities and everyone is welcoming.
There are some great diversity initiatives within the company, however these don't always translate to every office. The company's maternity leave policy is good. Unsure of paternity leave arrangements.
Don't see any issue with this. I believe currently quite good.
Very limited Aboriginal presence. LGBT is not very openly discussed so I cannot comment.
We actively try to use ethnic minorities as suppliers. Gender issues are discussed regularly and the company stance on LGBT and respect to all is clear. There appears to be no bias as to who is/isn't recruited, however efforts are being made to increase indigenous population within the company.
Highly committed, but better than that it's mostly a non-issue and everyone gets a fair go. I understand from being around other colleagues that things like balancing a family and work are quite possible, though there are probably still improvements that could be made.
Diversity Council, mostly focused on gender equality. Push for women in senior positions
Awareness and efforts towards reducing sexual and racial discrimination
It seems everyone is treated as an equal
What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
Offer internships as part of the Indigenous Internship Program. This means that jobs can be provided based purely off merit.
Aboriginal employment targets.
We are actively involved in helping communities and bringing people in
Brings in interns from aboriginal background and low socioeconomic areas.
They support a lot of programs
Hold special events directed at minority groups. Support those groups.
Holds a number of morning teas and seminars dedicated to promoting diversity
