We are focused on recruiting and developing our future leaders, through our graduate and emerging leader programs and Young Professionals (YP) networking groups.
Our YP program provides a strong support network our younger employees and opportunities for them to participate in a range of professional development activities. Active in every state, our YP groups help our people build strong working relationships with their peers and clients. The YP program brings together people with less than 10 years of professional experience from various disciplines to assist in developing skills.
As part of our efforts to promote and encourage optimal work practices and policies that support mature employees’ participation, engagement and health at work, GHD has become an inaugural Stakeholder Reference Group member of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research. The Centre is a multidisciplinary research collaboration between University of New South Wales, Australian National University, University of Melbourne, University of Sydney and Curtin University aimed at optimising social and economic outcomes for an ageing world. Our engagement with the centre helps them to translate their research knowledge into practical business applications, it also facilitates our access to data, personnel and other resources that will help us promote successful ageing in our workplace.
