It was an honour to be presented with the John Holland Award for Team Innovation for ‘Project 5: A Weekend for Every Worker’ at the NAWIC NSW Awards For Excellence.
This award recognises teams with substantial female membership, and which have made a significant contribution to the implementation of innovative work practices to NSW construction, building or related industries.
“I’d love to see our industry adapt and innovate to this new way of working which will encourage more people to our sector, increase diversity and enhance the health and wellbeing of our workforce.” Alison Mirams, CEO, Roberts Co.
The Project 5 research project was carried out by UNSW Australian Human Rights Institute, commissioned by Roberts Co and Health Infrastructure. It studied the effects of implementing a 5-day programme on the $341 million Concord Hospital Redevelopment.
The findings of the Project 5 study, released in May 2022, highlight the positive social benefits of innovating as a sector to improve the work life balance of workers, while ensuring economic viability in delivering our projects.
