Challenge

Adelaide Brighton Limited sought to enhance their Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) practices across the organisation. They aimed to develop a comprehensive strategy to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within their workforce.

Approach

A Human Agency (A-HA) was engaged to review the existing D&I practices at Adelaide Brighton Limited and develop a strategy for enhanced D&I. We conducted listening sessions across a diverse sample of employees to understand the current status and gather insights.

Solution

Insights from the listening sessions were synthesised and combined with best practices to develop a renewed 5-year D&I strategy. Feedback from key stakeholders, including the leadership team, was incorporated to ensure the strategy was leader-led. The framework included strategic initiatives to attract a broader diversity of talent and establish D&I behaviours as consistent standards across sites. A-HA collaborated with listening groups to ensure the strategy reflected their vision for the future of D&I at Adelaide Brighton Limited.

Experience

A-HA facilitated workshops to enhance D&I capability among leaders and drive accountability for leading by example. The strategy was then rolled out across the organisation to promote a culture of inclusivity. In 2020, A-HA conducted a review of workplace culture and assessed appropriate workplace behaviours, incorporating both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Despite challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the review was conducted remotely, ensuring a thorough assessment of the desired organisational culture against the current state. Through structured interviews and document reviews, A-HA provided valuable insights to further enhance D&I efforts within Adelaide Brighton Limited.

What our clients have to say

A-HA provides the right combination of knowledge, experience and humanness to bring about real strategies for improving our capabilities to deliver on strategy.

In an industry that is evolving rapidly, and in an organisation with diverse roles and responsibilities, we needed a partner that could understand our challenges and opportunities and work with all of our people—including our Board, CEO, management and employees. This was specifically to support us on a Diversity & Inclusion program.

A-HA are genuine people who approach every person and every challenge with integrity, listening and understanding, while also using their expert knowledge to influence and lead everyone towards the outcomes we need for growth.

A-HA’s human-centred approach, coupled with their commercial acumen, makes them a go-to for any organisation seeking to improve their business through real Diversity & Inclusion.
