In late 2019 we placed our 400th Indigenous worker since commencing our Indigenous Employment Program in 2015. The program is run in partnership with the Federal Government’s Employment Parity Initiative. We are proud to be creating construction careers for Indigenous Australians.
Hutchies takes the view that construction is fundamentally about people. We’ve been creating the structures in which people live, work, study, and play for over a century. And we’ve been stepping up to take responsibility for the social, economic and environmental implications of our work since before a triple bottom line was even a thing.
To us, it’s about keeping in touch with our strong family values, staying connected with our communities, giving back, and doing the right thing. We’re genuine about having a positive impact on the communities we work in, and we’re committed to ensuring our business activities and, where possible, those of our suppliers and business partners are being undertaken in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. Over and above being a good business citizen, Hutchies is all about people. We love to help out where we can and find joy in investing in the communities around us.
We were humbled to have been recognised by the QCF as 2019 Corporate Philanthropist of the Year.
