Our people and culture
Motivated by the difference we make.
Making the difference
Raising the bar for the industry and working on projects and programmes that contribute to the success of businesses, communities and economies is what drives our highly-skilled team.
We work in a broad range of sectors shaping, delivering and maintaining assets that create significant social and economic value. That includes everything from power generation to transport, oil and gas exploration to healthcare or hotels – and by making the difference for our clients we also touch the lives of millions of people.
Our style of working defines our behaviours and actions. It’s what we look for in every person and team, everywhere. Our style is:
- We are driven and productive. We meet the commitments we make to our people, so they feel inspired to give their all and are supported to deliver the vision we’ve set.
- We are collaborative and connected. Our people connect our diverse skills with other organisations to drive value for our clients and ourselves. Building good working relationships is a given in our sector but true collaboration goes much further. We stay focused on great outcomes, no matter how tough it gets.
- We are intelligent and challenging. Our people don’t accept the status quo as the best we can do. We encourage everyone – whatever their role – to contribute new ideas, constantly finding ways to improve performance and maximise value.
Great place to work
Our inspired people share our vision and mission. We provide a great place to work, where each person has the opportunity and voice to affect change.
We aspire to do business in the right way, with a transparent and open culture to match. Through our coordinated corporate responsibility programme our people have ongoing opportunities to participate in education outreach, fundraising and pro bono schemes. These schemes give our people an opportunity to enhance their skills, as well as contribute to the community value we generate as a business.
We want our people to succeed both in work and life. To support this we promote a healthy, productive and flexible working environment that respects work-life balance. We believe that everyone should pursue their passions and provide a real opportunity for this; whether you join one of our sports teams, social networks or bring a new interest to your colleagues.
