We pride ourselves on our global performance and development planning program called InterAct which establishes clarity about our roles, promotes regular two-way feedback and career planning and recognises our people for the work they do.

Programs focus on all people achieving their development goals through InterAct. These programs and activities are tailored to our various locations, but include "Lunch and Learn" sessions, e-Learning modules and language training. Our people also have the opportunity to be supported through contributions to their external studies where those studies are relevant to their professional development.

Rewards and recognition

Depending on where in the world they work, our people have access to a range of non-monetary rewards and recognition programs. Our managers are encouraged to make recommendations to senior management when outstanding employee contributions are identified.

Each year we recognise those people who go above and beyond their duties to embody our values through our global and regionally based recognition programs. Our programs recognise the outstanding contributions of our people in areas such as safety, client focus, ingenious solutions, collaboration, respect for the community and environment.

Work/life balance

Ausenco is a diverse organisation. We operate in different countries, in different cultures and understand that our global teams are all different, which is why we listen to our people and aim to offer them a safe, happy and productive work/life balance.

In some locations, Ausenco offers an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) which is a free and confidential counselling service to support our people with work and personal concerns. We want our people to have a good quality of life and will provide the support networks and programs.

Flexible working

Wherever possible we try to offer our people a working schedule that suits them. Whether it is through our flexible hours, part-time or job-share working arrangements or even the occasional work from home day.

Our global IT infrastructure allows us to be connected at any time of day and, in some circumstances, teleconferencing negates the need for tiresome travel.

Innovation

At Ausenco, we are committed to continuous improvement and always looking for new practices and technologies that empower our people. Our world leaders are driven to constantly look for new and better ways of achieving outcomes for our clients.

We also aim to create collaborative and productive work environments that support cohesive team interaction and provide opportunities for our people to increase their knowledge and education.

Giving back

Ausenco employees have the opportunity to "give back" to the communities in which they live and work through the Ausenco Foundation and local office-based programs. Options include volunteering, raising money for disaster relief, food drives and helping to support initiatives funded by the Ausenco Foundation.

Social time

Due to the nature of the work we do, we know that sometimes there isn’t time to be sociable. But when there is time we like to make the most of it!

From team and office drinks, coffee mornings, donut sessions and festive occasions, to sporting events and charitable activities, we encourage our people and their families to get involved with the Ausenco community.

Health and fitness

At Ausenco we know that healthy people make a healthy workforce. Depending on where you’re located you may have access to onsite gyms or fitness facilities and fitness professionals. Many of our offices participate in sporting events and challenges allowing our people to showcase their many talents.

Healthy eating options and information on leading a healthy lifestyle are also readily available at Ausenco through our lunch and learn programs.

Our values and people practices

Ausenco’s core values form the cornerstone of everything we do. They enable us to discover through ingenuity and lead by example. Our six core values are:

  • Safety in all we do
  • The client is our focus
  • Our people are our strength
  • Respect the community, the environment
  • We seek ingenious solutions
  • We are open, honest and collaborative
People practices

Our people are our strength and we aim to provide all employees with opportunities to develop new ideas, build their skills and be recognised for their work. We also expect our people to continuously deliver outstanding results for their clients – regardless of whether they are internal or external clients.

Recruitment

As a service business, recruiting and retaining the best possible people is critical to our success.

The best people not only have the technical skills we need, they also have the personal qualities and motivational and cultural fit required to succeed in the role they are hired for.

Induction

It is very important to get off to a good start. A good induction will provide role clarity and reinforce why their job is important to the business. That is why we place a lot of emphasis on a new employee’s induction. It will also confirm in that person’s mind that they have made the right decision in joining our team. We hope it marks the beginning of a long and fruitful career with Ausenco.

Induction is not a single, discrete activity, but a process that starts before the first day of employment and will continue for the first few months.

Performance and development

We encourage employee development through formal programs and on the job experiences. Insight Development Programs provide a wide range of development initiatives including leadership development, technical skills and core systems education and external education support.

We also seek to ‘grow our own’ leaders through a formal approach to succession planning and talent management.

Ausenco’s performance planning and development framework, InterAct, is designed to ensure every employee has what they need to challenge their own boundaries and help achieve our company goals.

Remuneration and benefits

At Ausenco we recognise that everyone contributes to our success. We ensure our remuneration and benefits are market competitive and attractive so we can attract the best candidates and retain our people.

Our remuneration levels are monitored through external benchmarking with internal relativities managed through reviews which take into account market relativities for the position and the individual’s performance.

As a global business, we encourage the transfer of employees between our operations, across businesses and countries. Our remuneration structures have been developed to facilitate the global mobility of our people.

Leadership

We expect a lot from our leaders. We expect them to lead by example, to grow their people and their areas of the business, to develop ingenious solutions and to deliver on their commitments. And we give them the tools and guidance they need to do just that.

Communication

Positive, open communication is vital in a people business. Our communication strategies help build strong relationships with all stakeholders; build and protect our reputation and engage, inform and recognise our people.

Ethics and fairness

We are committed to operating to the highest standards of ethical behaviour, honesty, and fairness in all relationships with our stakeholders. We believe that good Corporate Governance practices are about conducting business in a transparent and ethical manner. In performing duties for, or on Ausenco’s behalf, Ausenco people shall communicate and deal with others with honesty, integrity, and professional courtesy.

Ausenco is committed to abide by all laws applicable to the jurisdictions in which it operates, and we expect anyone doing business on our behalf to also comply with those laws. In all locations, our people are expected to maintain a level of professional conduct and business ethics no less stringent than what would be acceptable in highly developed countries, even though an “understanding” of local law or custom may seem to permit business standards that are less exacting.
