Building Relationships and Respect and Creating Opportunities
We are committed to Aboriginal engagement, with the aim of increasing employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander* people within our businesses.
CSBP’s actions are guided by WesCEF’s comprehensive Aboriginal Engagement and Employment Strategy, which seek to:
- Create employment opportunities for Aboriginal people
- Outline key plans and guidelines to encourage stronger retention of Aboriginal employees where people choose to stay in the business and develop their careers over a long period of time
- Contribute to a safe, positive and inclusive workplace for Aboriginal employees
- Add to a culturally diverse workforce
The following three pillars form the foundation of the Strategy:
We are committed to establishing and maintaining meaningful relationships with our Aboriginal employees, customers and contractors, as well as the people living in the communities in which our businesses operate. We have long-lasting community partnerships with The Clontarf Foundation and Moordjit Koort, where our support enables a wide range of local activities and initiatives that support Aboriginal people.
We are committed to developing awareness of Aboriginal culture and to building an organisational culture that is welcoming and inclusive of Aboriginal people. Our Onsite Cultural Connections Program supports Aboriginal engagement and aims to enable Aboriginal team members to feel welcome and included in their workplace.
CSBP has an opportunity to make a real and lasting impact on Aboriginal employment within the Kwinana community. Our workforce in Kwinana is substantial, and the Aboriginal population in this area is twice the national average. Consequently, we will always strive for meaningful involvement in the local communities in which we operate.
