This week SNP Security hosted a morning tea at the National Library of Australia (NLA) in Canberra and we were honoured to have Paul Knight attend this special event.
At the forefront of our discussion was the progress SNP has made to date on strengthening diversity and our commitment to inclusion, in particular our programs for women and Indigenous Australians. SNP engages in various diversity initiatives such as the #ConnectedWomen program to empower our female employees, and the One Team One Dream program to provide sustainable career paths for Indigenous Australians.
Since 2009, we have partnered with Indigenous Australians and the wider community. We are firm believers that diverse teams are operationally more efficient and over the last 12-18 months we have also introduced initiatives such as Your Future Starts Now, Women in Leadership, and #ConnectedWomen to support and encourage women at all levels in the security industry.
Beyond running such programs, SNP has also recently collaborated with Macquarie University in a research project, Bridging the Diversity Gap, to gain insights into employees’ experiences within a diverse workplace, and how to best harness this diversity. We know how important it is that each of our employees know they have a voice, as this contributes greatly to their sense of inclusivity in the workplace.
At SNP, we strongly believe it is crucial to have a genuinely inclusive culture and are therefore constantly seeking ways to help us progress towards our goal of ultimately improving diversity in the security industry.
