Our Inclusion & Diversity policies
In Australia, Webuild developed two policies (Equal Employment Opportunity, Harassment and Bullying) that set principles and objectives to guarantee a working environment that values every employee regardless of sex, race, age or background. It applies these policies to the projects it is developing in the country. It ensures that every hire receives induction training and is informed of the policies and procedures regarding diversity on the work site.
