Increasing Indigenous people’s participation in the workforce in Australia
Over the last few years QGC in Australia, part of the BG Group, has been working to maximise Indigenous employment in its operations. Construction contractors tend to have recruitment systems that do not address the typical barriers Indigenous people face when applying for jobs. QGC has worked to address these challenges through developing a more targeted approach to recruiting Indigenous people. As a result, the numbers and retention rate of Indigenous people working in QGC operations has seen fantastic results.
