Last year Intract created an award to show appreciation to our clients whom we feel have proven their commitment to engaging and creating job opportunities for Indigenous Australians.
At Intract we believe we demonstrate fierce competitiveness when it comes to meeting Indigenous targets such as employment opportunities, providing training outcomes and upholding cultural protocols through every project, and we look at clients who highly regard these same outcomes. To be shortlisted for the award, we look at clients who have demonstrated strong leadership qualities that align with Intract’s fundamentals.
The below criteria captures these elements and this includes:
• Positive approach to engagement of Indigenous enterprise
• Providing positive employment outcomes
• Mutual respect commitment to Closing the Gap
• Open communication
• A profitable working relationship
Intract SA are proud to announce the 2018 Intract NAIDOC Award was presented to Lendlease.
This was awarded to them in recognition of their continuous commitment by actively engaging with Intract and creating an environment where Intract and McMahon Services could work with them to deliver a significant civil works package at Osborne, SA.
In essence this was a great example of a large company making a conscious decision to work with Indigenous business and getting a positive outcome in terms of job delivery and Indigenous John Briggs, Director Southern Australia presenting the employment.
In celebratory recognition of NAIDOC week, Intract NT hosted their inaugural NAIDOC Awards.
Award nominees included Aurecon, Department of Housing and Community Development (Northern Territory Government) and Department of the Environment and Energy (Federal Government), for recognition in demonstrating outstanding contribution and a strong commitment to engaging with Indigenous enterprises, and Closing the Gap on Indigenous economic participation and employment.
