Closing the Pay Gap

In addition to being recognised by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency as an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality, AECOM is also an Equal Pay Ambassador.

AECOM has taken decisive action address gender pay inequality within the business, with key initiatives including:

  • Dedicating a budget to specifically address any gender pay inequality, with over $1m already committed in the last two years
  • Ensuring that all women on maternity leave have salary reviews in line with the annual review period
  • Avoiding inheriting a pay gap by ensuring that the salaries of all new female staff joining the business are sized appropriately for the role they have been hired for, and not based on their salary at previous employers. 

In addition, AECOM has also taken action to address unconscious bias in the workplace with training for all people managers, and have in place a very successful mentoring program for female employees.
