Diversity and Inclusion

We believe that, by working together, people with diverse backgrounds and experience can offer the most innovative ideas. Diversity hones our competitive edge and contributes to our company's strength.

We know a varied, inclusive work place drives true innovation and leadership. Embracing different viewpoints and experiences is a principle we put to work from recruitment to career, finding and supporting talented people no matter where they come from or who they are to achieve their very best.

“At Arcadis we are firm believers in creating a diverse and inclusive workforce for all colleagues. In a male-dominated industry it’s critical that we take strong action, targets, intervene when necessary and hold ourselves to account.” – Greg Steele, CEO Arcadis Australia Pacific, on gender equality.

We aim to foster a working environment that is inclusive and understands that diversity expresses itself in many different ways, including age, gender identity and expression, race, nationality, sexual orientation, and disability.

Ways in which we have begun to action this include:

  • Ongoing gender pay-gap analysis focused on achieving gender pay equity
  • Gender diversity targets for the business overall and individual business units
  • Flexible working options available to all staff and roles
  • Launching our Reconciliation Action Plan to support Aboriginal and Torres straight islander participation
  • Organisation focus on the wellbeing of all our employees with our formal Positive Living program

Over the past year, we are proud to have been recognised and awarded the FlexAble’ certification for our Flex@Arcadis workplace flexibility policy, and the WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation.

We partner with the following organisations as part of our Diversity and Inclusion efforts:

  • Engineers Australia
  • Engineering Aid
  • CareerTrackers
  • UNSW through our Women in Engineering Scholarship
  • Consult Australia Male Champions of Change
