Fulton Hogan has been recognised for Indigenous inclusion at the 2019 nbn™ Supplier Awards in Sydney.
Each year, nbn holds a national supplier conference with its key partners to encourage collaboration and continuous improvement across the communications industry. Fulton Hogan has been working with nbn helping to deliver its national broadband infrastructure since 2014 and prides itself on optimising Indigenous employment and business opportunities across all projects.
“We maintain a culturally sensitive approach to our operations and seek jointly beneficial opportunities through engagement with Indigenous groups within the regions we work,” said Lee Revell, CEO Fulton Hogan Utilities.
“This year we proudly launched our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, which will help us to realise our vision of building and connect communities for all Australians, through the delivery of vital infrastructure projects that encourage inclusion and create long lasting outcomes for the benefit of all communities.”
The company has established long-term and meaningful relationships with Aboriginal-owned enterprises through Supply Nation and Zancott Recruitment. Fulton Hogan also has long-term relationships with RAW Recruitment, the Ngarrindjeri people and many other indigenous groups with whom they continue to employ and engage Indigenous labour across multiple projects.
