COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Ahrens are committed to having a positive and meaningful impact on the communities in which we operate, donating more than $10 million in our Community Engagement program since starting in 1996.

BUILDING A BETTER FUTURE.

We aim to empower our people and the wider community to be active in supporting a brighter future for all. Driven by a mission to challenge for the better and advocate for change, Ahrens has identified and developed key initiatives to support enjoyment in the workplace and guide us to achieve our goals of building a better global community.

AHRENS HAS SIX KEY PILLARS THAT FORM OUR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITIES:

SUPPORT COMMUNITY

Ahrens has long supported grassroots sporting groups and local causes through sponsorship, donations and in kind contributions. This culture of giving is supported by Ahrens employees who enthusiastically participate in fundraisers for various nominated charities and causes.

ACCELERATE MEDICAL RESEARCH

As part of our commitment to partnering with professional in the health field to improve prevention, detection and treatment of life-threatening diseases, Ahrens has given a significant amount of financial support to critical research programs to improve treatment outcomes for patients.

EMPOWER YOUTH

Ahrens is focused on empowering and supporting all young people by connecting them with opportunities to reach their full potential and to succeed. The next generation is important to our future, and Ahrens firmly believes every young person should have the same opportunities to flourish and succeed.

UNITE ALL AUSTRALIANS

We are committed to working towards closing the gap in employment equality between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous Australians. We will continue to promote Ahrens as a safe and inclusive workplace, with a focus on the right person for the job, regardless of race, religion and culture.

STAND UP FOR MIND HEALTH

We are passionate about improved mind health for everyone by shifting the narrative. Ahrens strives to be a leader in creating an environment where every individual feels that their health and wellbeing is important. This is what it means to be part of the Ahrens family.

SUSTAIN OUR ENVIRONMENT

Ahrens understands that vital role we have to play in protecting and maintaining our environmental resources for future generations. This includes the application of innovative design and construction techniques, being aware of the use of materials, being aware of the use of materials and resources, and implementing environmental efficiencies across all our work sites.

United Through Cause

EMPLOYEE DONATION PROGRAM

Ahrens supports many philanthropic initiatives and we encourage our employees to get involved in giving back to their community. To assist this, Ahrens has established an annual Employee Donation Program where employees are able to nominate a charity, grassroots sporting group or other within the framework. Their nomination will receive a donation made by Ahrens on behalf of the employee.

CAUSE WE CARE

Our employees celebrate their birthday for the month over a morning tea organised by Ahrens. We nominate a charity per month that aligns with our six pillars, where employees are encouraged to make a small donation as part of the Ahrens’ fundraising efforts.

VOLUNTEERING

Employees are encouraged and given the opportunity to volunteer within their local community. Our Kingsford, South Australian employees volunteer with Kickstart For Kids to support a breakfast program for disadvantaged children at a Gawler school. In addition, we host company tree planting days in our local communities.
