SkyPoint is committed to assisting Indigenous people in Queensland to overcome the disadvantages they experience and acknowledges the overall importance of Indigenous culture to the organisation. SkyPoint recognises the value of having a diverse workforce.
Indigenous Employment Strategy:
SkyPoint has developed an Indigenous Employment Strategy (IES) to work towards social justice for Indigenous Australians. It will provide guidance for the SkyPoint community in providing successful work opportunities and employment outcomes for Indigenous people.
The Indigenous Employment Strategy aims to provide a framework to deliver improved Indigenous employment outcomes.
This strategy has been produced in response to SkyPoint's commitment to its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and improving employee access for Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) target groups. These programs will generate an overarching strategy to see the theme park providing employment opportunities for a diverse workforce, which reflects the wider population. The strategy is acknowledgment by SkyPoint that additional measures to the principles of EEO are needed to increase Indigenous employment levels within SkyPoint.
The SkyPoint Indigenous Employment Strategy is built on six key components:
- Career and capability development
- Workplace culture
Management of the Indigenous Employment Strategy:
The Human Resources department will predominately manage the Indigenous Employment Strategy and has appointed an Indigenous Employment Coordinator and RAP (Reconciliation Action Plan) Internal Working Group to assist in this process. Human Resources will work closely with all departments within SkyPoint to ensure the Indigenous Employment Strategy is maintained and is supported by all employees.
