People

Working at Ausenco means being part of a vibrant, culturally diverse company that nurtures creativity from all our people. Never settling for the status quo, we all have a license to be ingenious in all aspects of our work.

We’re proud of our ability to attract visionary people who embrace challenges and discover innovative solutions for each and every client.

Our People & Performance strategy outlines a range of individual and team programs that support our people from their initial interest in our company through recruitment; on-boarding; induction; remuneration and benefits; professional and personal development; reward and recognition; mobility; separation; and post-employment. It is implemented by a global team all focused on creating a positive culture in which people are set up for success and supported during their time at Ausenco.

Capability development

To foster continual development for our current and future employees, we aim to provide all our people with opportunities to develop new ideas, build their skills and be recognised for their work. We seek to build our people’s capability in a number of ways including:

  • InterAct, our performance development program
  • Structured leadership development programs including EmEx (Emerging Executives), TLS (Team Leader Series), MDP (Management Development Program)
  • And other capability-building options including eLearning modules, “Lunch and Learns”, core systems training, personal or team-specific development
  • Specific technical training.

Developing our younger employees

With a keen understanding that we need to help our younger professionals become leaders of the future, we also provide support through the Ausenco Emerging Professionals and New Professionals Programs and various mentoring activities.

Embracing diversity

We also embrace and develop diversity among our people and tap into the dynamic culture that difference in race, nationality, gender, age, experience and language can generate. Activities in this area include the Indigenous Cadetship program, scholarships and awards for University students, cross-cultural awareness education and training, “Ausenco Women in Engineering” initiatives and our CEO’s membership of the Queensland Male Champions of Change. Ausenco’s internal communication channels also celebrate the diversity and successes of our people.
