BHP is a leading global resources company that extracts and processes minerals, oil and gas; resources necessary for families, towns, regions and nations.
With more than 72,000 employees and contractors working across 90 locations worldwide, our people sit at the very heart of everything we do. At BHP, we are focused on creating a safe workplace where our people feel connected to our values and objectives and where the capability of our people is key to our success. We invest in our workforce, and recognise that we are strengthened by diversity.
In 2016, BHP announced an aspirational goal to achieve gender balance by 2025. Our data shows our most inclusive and diverse teams outperform other teams average on safety, culture and productivity.
By aspiring for gender balance, we will create a safer, more harmonious culture. We want BHP to be a place where everyone is respected and valued and want it to be an enjoyable and inclusive place to work. One of the ways we are supporting a more diverse workforce is by providing a flexible workplace.
Providing a flexible workplace helps create a high performing culture by increasing productivity and job satisfaction.
Some 41 per cent of our people worked flexibly in FY2019 and we continue to educate our workforce about flexible working at BHP.
We’ve still got more to do and we will continue to focus on enhancing our policies, processes and behaviours, embedding flexible work and making our industry more attractive to diverse talent.
