ASPL Group acknowledges, and pays respect to the traditional owners and ongoing custodians of the land of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We currently have a standing partnership with Kirra Services, an Aboriginal owned recruitment agency based in Australia, to provide Indigenous resources to Government clients.
ASPL Group is a tolerant and diverse organisation that recognises Indigenous Australians and their right to a fair and understanding workplace and employment opportunities. We recognise that Australia is made up of people who come from many different nations, and of the rights of Indigenous Australians including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to a fair and equal opportunities and practices. This recognition is reflected in:
- Fair employment practices
- The opportunity to be selected for any position or promotion based on merit
- Participate in and access all relevant benefits and conditions
- Be free from harassment and discrimination in the workplace
- An environment which fully utilises their skills and talents.
We aim to work with Indigenous Australians by providing work opportunities and workplaces that are free from harassment and cultural bias and offer flexible working conditions and realistic career opportunities. We will do this by identifying actions, timelines and measurable targets for relationships, respect and opportunities.
ASPL Group offers specific support for Indigenous employees such as Cultural/Sorry Day/NAIDOC Leave and has a strong appreciation for their cultural requirements by allowing Leave for returning to their communities. Their journeys are shared to ensure that all the other ASPL Group employees appreciate their culture and values and we provide a culturally safe workplace.
