Aurecon operates with a huge range of partners and has a strong commitment from their senior leadership, bringing in experts to upskill them. They’re delivering on their authentic promise of diversity and inclusion, which is making a significant impact on their employees.
They recently appointed Tracey Ryan as the NZ Regional Managing Director – a strong and vocal advocate of diversity and inclusion and driver of accelerated change.
Aurecon were the first New Zealand engineering consultancy to offer Shared Care, giving Aurecon families more choice when considering who takes on childcare responsibilities in their home.
