Diversity at AECOM New Zealand

8 rating for Diversity, based on 19 reviews
Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.
AECOM has a diversity and inclusion plan which I think focuses mainly on gender equality and LGBT inclusion. I know Australia does a lot for racial reconciliation. AECOM has targets for recruiting females in the graduate intake and female representation in higher management. Parental leave is available for both men and women.

Really good initiative to have gender diversity

Active on addressing it for a male-dominated industry. Multicultural.

Over half the office is women, not only in admin but also in technical roles. Everyone is treated as equal and intolerant behaviour isn't tolerated
Graduate, Auckland
I believe diversity at the workplace is pretty good, particularly in regards to females. I think everyone here respects each other and it is good to be in an environment like such

They are working hard to increase the diversity due to being a male dominated industry. My team is very diverse.

I think we should always base recruitment on skills/what they bring to the table and NOT be dependent on providing diversity. I LOVE that there is maternity leave for both male and female parents at AECOM.

AECOM is aware of this and is making steps to be more diverse, which is good to see.
Graduate, Auckland
There is parental leave available for both men and women which is great. As far as commitment to diversity goes I don't see any stage of the recruitment process discriminating against any race, gender or culture. I firmly believe the right person for the position is the right person, regardless of these factors.

They have a lot of provisions for diversity

What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
Does have indigenous programme in Aus. Unsure for NZ

Very very poor. I see AECOM do nothing about this. I understand this is somewhat difficult however since social mobility begins at high school/university, which are the gateways to better outcomes. I think AECOM could however do more to engage lower-decile schools to bring awareness. I came from a low-decile school myself and had absolutely no clue companies like AECOM existed (let alone what they did) until I was in university and met students from backgrounds that were aware/saw AECOM at career fairs.
