Our People

Our People

Building an engaged, diverse and talented workforce is key to EBOS’ success.

At EBOS, we value our people by supporting them to lead healthy, balanced lives. Investment in learning and development provides employees with opportunities for advancement while ensuring our business attracts and develops the skills  and capabilities we need to deliver for our stakeholders. We recognise and  reward performance in a fair and equitable way to encourage all members of our team to strive for excellence in everything we do.


EBOS People policies and practices underpin the Group’s culture of caring and accountability. An engaged and aligned workforce helps drive performance, so we regularly ask our people for feedback through our confidential Engagement Survey. We have clearly articulated our Diversity & Inclusion policy and programs. Together with our framework of Workplace Policies supporting positive  workplace behaviours, these help to deliver on our commitments for Gender Diversity and Reconciliation.

In FY23, we increased our focus and resourcing around injury management and return to work arrangements. We also embarked on an initiative using wearable technology to better understand higher risk manual handling related tasks, and provided task and individualised training.

Safety Management System

EBOS’ Work Health & Safety management system ensures strong leadership and accountability for workplace safety policies and  practices. It is supported by an effective risk management framework.

The Group Safety Committee, chaired by the CEO, develops safety initiatives and identifies areas for improvement with wide  representation from business units.

Each operational division reports monthly to senior management on health and safety matters. The Board receives monthly and annual reports on group-wide safety performance.

Reconciliation is a journey of understanding to forge deeper connections between Indigenous and non- Indigenous Australians

EBOS acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their cultures and to their Elders past, present and emerging.

Our first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is designed to facilitate reconciliation at EBOS by fostering deeper understanding and appreciation of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures. It underpins EBOS’ growing commitment to building a more diverse and inclusive culture throughout our business across New Zealand and Australia.

We have consulted closely with Reconciliation Australia to define our own unique principals and vision for reconciliation and within the first year, we are proud to have achieved a significant number of our objectives.

Some highlights include:

• The unique artwork commissioned from Australian Football League (AFL) legend and acclaimed contemporary Aboriginal artist Gavin Wanganeen

• Cultural Awareness Training for all leaders along with training on Behaviors of Inclusion for leaders

• Implementation of Welcome to Country and Acknowledgement of Country protocols

• Celebrating NAIDOC Week with special events, including an interview with keynote speaker Marlee Silva, proud Gamilaroi and Dunghutti woman, author and host of the podcast series Always was, always will be our stories.

• Celebrating National Reconciliation Week and hosting Isaiah Dawe, Founder and CEO of ID Know Yourself, a company that delivers a culturally focused, trauma informed mentoring program for Aboriginal young npeople within Out of Home Care and in contact with the juvenile justice system.

In our second Reflect RAP, EBOS will take the learnings from our first Reflect RAP and focus these on outcomes that actively promote reconciliation in our business and our society. In particular, we will be focussed on how EBOS can better support career opportunities for First Nations Australians and work toward procuring more goods and services from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suppliers.
