AMA Projects are pleased to announce the OzHelp Foundation (OzHelp) as our charity partner for 2021. Health and wellbeing of employees is strongly valued within the culture of AMA Projects. To reinforce this commitment, throughout 2021 the AMA Projects team are raising much needed funds to support suicide prevention initiatives and health promotion programs led by OzHelp for Australia’s most at risk workers for suicide.
We believe the partnership with OzHelp directly aligns with our company values and are excited at the opportunity to support a charity that does such fantastic work nationally to help support mentally healthy workplaces in Australia’s high-risk industries.
Our people are at the heart of everything we do here at AMA Projects. Since our inception we have worked hard to create a people-first culture, fostering a positive work environment for our employees. We actively implement initiatives and procedures directly focused to support the mental health and wellbeing of our staff and reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, particularly in a male-dominated industry within the workplace.
AMA Projects are proud Silver Sponsors of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) ACT and what they strive to achieve – advocating, promoting and championing women in the construction industry. AMA Projects have a number of staff who sit on the Chapter Committee and champion NAWIC events and initiatives throughout the workplace.
As our founding Victorian office grows, AMA Projects are excited to partner with one of Australia’s oldest AFL clubs, The Melbourne University Blacks, with which we share a number of core values, including the high-level of value and support that we place on our people. The Blacks have a vibrant past player network that serves to connect players beyond their playing days and assists with career mentoring, job and business opportunities and a spirit of collaboration and reciprocity to drive business opportunities with values sponsors and supporters.
AMA Projects takes pride in ensuring an inclusive work environment exists where employees feel that they are valued, given recognition for their contribution to the Company’s success, and benefit from an environment that fosters good working relationships. Our belief in respecting each other at all times is one of our core company values.
At AMA Projects we are committed to supporting a diverse workforce where we employ individuals from a wide range of different backgrounds. We actively encourage our people to share their own unique perspectives and ideas to move our organisation forward in a positive direction. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we’re committed to ensuring that all current and future employees have access to equal opportunities and are treated with the same amount of respect, and feel comfortable to be themselves. We’ve worked hard to create a truly supportive and collaborative working environment to produce high quality outcomes for our clients.
The Modern Slavery Act 2018 requires all Australian businesses to ensure that their direct operations and their supply chains are free from the exploitation of human rights by ensuring no form of modern slavery exists. Modern Slavery is a term used to describe serious exploitation and can occur in every industry and sector with dire consequences for victims. As an organisation, AMA Projects commits to ensuring all basic freedoms are honoured by taking the necessary steps to guarantee an operation and a supply chain free from any form of modern slavery. Freedom from slavery is a human right, where we will continue to act ethically ensuring transparency and integrity across all aspects of our business.
We take our impact on the environment seriously and we have developed a number of tools that allow us to monitor and evaluate our impact on the environment, not just for our clients, but also for our own offices.
