We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders past and present.
Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
As a leading recruitment business, we understand that a genuine and meaningful focus on reconciliation uniquely places us to effect broad change not only within our workplace, but with our clients across Australia, to improve employment outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
For years we have developed and fostered partnerships in support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and we are proud of the progress made following the development of our inaugural Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan in 2020, which includes:
- Growing the number of long-term partnerships that we are building within Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander groups.
- Undertaking a Cultural Learning Needs Analysis that informs the educational opportunities for our people.
- Delivering our Indigenous Participation Plan (IPP).
- Investing more than $1 million in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander owned businesses.
Our vision for reconciliation
Our Innovate RAP activity is guided by four action areas; Relationships, Respect, Opportunities and Governance. It will be implemented over two years, from August 2023.
The Reconciliation Action Plan program provides a framework for organisations to advance reconciliation. There are four types of RAPs that an organisation can develop: Reflect, Innovate, Stretch, Elevate. Each type of RAP is designed to suit an organisation at different stages of their reconciliation journey. It includes practical actions that will drive an organisation’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the communities in which it operates.
