Version 1.0 of the IS rating scheme incorporates a People and Place theme focused on social sustainability impacts and benefits to the community and other external stakeholders. With the scheme being applied to infrastructure projects worth over $32 billion in capital value across a diverse range of civil works and infrastructure projects and assets, it is now time to incorporate the remaining critical social sustainability element within the IS scheme – namely Workforce. This theme will complement the existing themes by focusing on employees and other internal stakeholders.

This critical industry initiative has already begun with Thiess sponsoring the Workforce Scoping Study. ISCA now seeks full funding to capitalise on the momentum initiated by Thiess and other partners to research, develop and integrate workforce into the IS rating scheme.

“People are key to driving innovation and excellence on any project and the ongoing success of our industry. Recognising their contribution is fundamental to ensuring an engaged and committed workforce.” Peter Olsen, Executive General Manager, People, Safety and Environment Thiess

The scoping study for this work kicked off in January 2014 and incorporates stakeholder consultation through a Workforce Advisory Group and engagement with key industry stakeholders.

Workforce Advisory Group members include senior representatives from the following organisations: Thiess, Workpac, Diversity Council Australia, Mates in Construction, Assure Programs and Sustainability at Work.

The full theme development will incorporate further industry engagement through the Workforce Advisory Group as well as identifying and engaging with key industry stakeholders in relevant specialist fields.

ISCA thanks Thiess for sponsoring the Scoping Study and John Holland Group for providing in-kind support.
