Crown prides itself on a strong commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment.
As the largest single-site, private sector employer in Victoria and Western Australia, we recognise that we have a responsibility to lead the way in creating opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to build careers in the tourism and entertainment industry.
Crown was the first employer to sign the Australian Employment Covenant in 2009, and provided the first job opportunities under that program. Our commitment in 2009 was to hire 300 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, which we achieved in 2013: our current target is 2,000 job opportunities by 2021.
We employed our 540th Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employee in May 2016.
Continuing our journey towards reconciliation, Crown former Chairman, James Packer, launched the Crown Resorts Reconciliation Action Plan in March 2013, making it clear to the Australian nation that we are committed to Closing the Gap. We have come a long way since then and in July 2015, Crown former Chairman, James Packer, in partnership with The Hon. Daniel Andrews MP, Premier of Victoria launched the second Crown Resorts Reconciliation Action Plan, which achieve the highest rating by Reconciliation Australia, an ELEVATE level.
Crown’s Indigenous Employment Program has been recognised by industry and governments, in the form of a number of prestigious awards, most recently the 2014 Australian Human Resources Institutes’s Inclusion & Diversity Award. The next step in our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment journey is the implementation of our new Reconciliation Action Plan, that articulates how we will evolve the Program to continue to make a difference in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
