Department of Construction and Infrastructure Annual Report 2010-2011 66 Our People People Management Our goal is to make DCI an employer of choice, ensuring we are attractive to prospective employees as well as providing opportunity and development for existing staff. We are building a workforce with the capability to deliver our vision, mission and specific planning objectives. Workforce Development DCI recognises the value that comes from investing in the personal and professional development of staff, and thats why we are providing more training opportunities than ever before. These programs will further grow a workforce that is appropriately skilled and has the capability to deliver our corporate objectives now and into the future. In the past Financial Year, DCI has engaged a consultant to provide expertise for personnel to complete Certificate IV and the Diploma in both Contract Management and Procurement. These courses support our core business and link in with DCIs direction and quality assurance. Throughout the year, we have also identified a team of 22 staff members across all regions to become accredited as tender evaluation chairs. Workforce Behaviour We are committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace, free from bullying, harassment and discrimination. Allegations of such behaviour are treated seriously. Indigenous Employment The Indigenous Employment and Training Unit is dedicated to helping contractors find, train and retain Indigenous employees for their remote projects, and assist with employment opportunities for people in remote communities. Sweeping reforms are also being made to procurement practices to boost Indigenous employment within the construction industry. Cross-Cultural Training Cross-Cultural Training is offered to employees to give them a greater understanding of Indigenous issues in the NT. With a broad knowledge of cultural, historical and contemporary issues, our staff are better equipped to communicate across cultural backgrounds as they deliver services. DCI supported me through my apprenticeship. I wanted to try something different and gaining a Certificate Three has branched out my capacity for future advancements. Charlotte Sankey, Project Administrator
