Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Diversity in the workplace

At Ausco Modular and Stayover by Ausco, we treat each other with respect and dignity. We are open to other cultures and have an appreciation of the differences and perspectives of others and welcome these contributions.

We recognise that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are Australia’s first people. We acknowledge that there has been considerable loss to them – their lands, kin, languages and cultural identity.  As such, we've worked hard to create a meaningful Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) that has practical actions that will drive our contribution to reconciliation both internally and within the communities in which we operate.

Ausco supports Local and First Nation’s engagement, and this directly relates to our Diversity and Inclusion Policy and Strategy across the business, as well as the strategy and activities of our RAP. They both aim to identify ways to achieve increased employment and engagement participation by First Nation and local people.

Our Innovate RAP outlines providing strategic and long-term employment opportunities for First Nation Australians with a particular focus on:

  • Developing relationships with the Traditional Owner groups in the regions we operate and work in
  • To enhance the engagement of Indigenous communities in the regions in which we operate
  • To contribute to Traditional Owners economic success through business partnerships and increased procurement opportunities
  • To deliver on Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Providing Cultural Awareness Training to our employees

Building Connections

The Ausco Modular RAP artwork Building Connections encapsulates Ausco’s vision for reconciliation: Working and walking together in partnership with understanding respect, inclusiveness and commitment.

The artwork is based on the five human needs: access to water, food, air, sleep and shelter. Shelter being the main focus of Ausco Modular, providing shelters and solutions (temporary and permanent) throughout Australia.

The circular shape references traditional shelters from both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. It also indicates seasonal calendars and natural building materials used to create these structures. Wood, bark, rock, leaves, and earth are all represented in the patterning of the circular structure.

The series of eight connected circles indicate the states and Territories where Ausco Modular are present throughout Australia.
