The Australasian Railway Association (ARA) has awarded ACCIONA for its Workforce Diversity Program during the Australasian Rail Industry Awards virtual ceremony, held on Thursday 15 October 2020.
The aim of these awards is to recognize the essential work of rail industry organizations and its commitment and tenacity during the year.
ACCIONA, through its subsidiary Coleman Rail, has delivered an extensive workforce diversity program to drive a stronger workplace culture and improved performance. The wide range of targeted sub programs delivered under the program seek to promote participation by women, youth, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, veterans and people from the corrections system. ACCIONA is actively attracting and retaining new talent outside traditional industry demographics to help address past barriers to employment.
The Australasian Railway Association (ARA) is the peak body for the rail sector in Australia and New Zealand. It represents more than 150 member organisations, including passenger and freight operators, track owners and managers, suppliers, manufacturers, contractors and consultants.
