Priority areas and 2020 Commitments
Roads and Maritime is committed to building a culture that plans for and encourages diversity. We recognise that a diverse workforce benefits our employees and customers.1
One of the greatest benefits of having a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture is that it is a pre-requisite for innovation and solving complex problems2. It leads to better productivity and engagement, and better quality services for our customers and communities.
This plan aims to increase workforce diversity and create an inclusive culture valuing and celebrating diversity of thought. The priority areas outlined below present the greatest opportunity for improvement and align to both NSW Public Sector and Transport Cluster diversity and inclusion priority areas.
We will increase representation of women at every level, in every area, and support the development of women in the workplace.
We will drive an inclusive culture through flexible mindsets and flexible work practices to improve outcomes for our employees, customers and communities.
We will work with our networks and industry partners to improve our workforce diversity and improve community.
