Coming from the Wiradjuri tribal teaching Yindyamarra and is gifted to us from our ancestors:
Yindyamarra is our way of life, it’s our traditional doctrine that guides how we treat people and do business. “As broadly translated” key Yindyamarra obligations are:
Show Respect – to everyone regardless of circumstances.
Be Gentle – be aware that our actions may/will affect others.
Be Polite – consider our words and ensure we do not intentionally offend others.
Act with Honour – accept responsibility, must be fair – must be the truth – actions must be supported by facts.
Go Slowly – must be culturally appropriate, make sure everyone is included and they understand why and how.
“Mawang” – we are all in it together and it must be good for our community.
Through Yindyamarra, AIBS philosophy encapsulates promoting sustainability, individual wealth, and opportunities for the AIBS shareholders, employees, and the indigenous population.
We aim to empower our teams through education, training, and development in various trades and disciplines, with the view of changing economic dependence on others such as social services support to earning income through meaningful, full-time jobs.
Training and Development
We are dedicated to supporting staff development
At AIBS, we prioritise the growth and development of our employees through comprehensive training and development programs. We understand the significance of nurturing talent within our organisation, and thus, offer a wide array of learning opportunities to our staff. These include on-the-job training and mentoring, focusing on enhancing technical skills, fostering teamwork, and improving interpersonal skills, and more formal opportunities for professional development, such as traineeships and specialised short courses or certifications tailored to job requirements.
We are deeply committed to the growth of our employees and actively support and encourage their career advancement. Recognizing the diverse needs of our workforce, our training programs are designed to cater to various learning styles and levels, ensuring that every individual at AIBS has the chance to thrive and excel in their career journey.
We proudly foster an inclusive workplace where diversity is celebrated
At Australian Indigenous Business Services, our commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the blue-collar industries is a source of great pride. Our company is both Indigenous and Veteran owned, and so we take immense pride in championing diversity and inclusion within the blue-collar industries.
We firmly believe in providing equal opportunities for everyone, especially focusing on supporting Women, Veterans, and Indigenous Australians. Currently, over 80% of our dedicated staff proudly identify as Indigenous Australians, reflecting our commitment to empowering local communities and providing opportunities. Additionally, with more than 30% of our workforce being women, we actively challenge gender stereotypes and promote inclusivity, recognising the invaluable contributions of women in traditionally male-dominated fields.
With our CEO coming from a military background in the Australian Army we are deeply committed to supporting veterans and recognise the unparalleled skills they acquire during their service. At AIBS, we highly value the discipline, dedication, critical thinking, and expertise that ex-service people bring to the table and highly encourage applications.
We firmly support and stand as allies for the LGBTQIA+ community, fostering an inclusive workplace where everyone feels respected and valued regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. By embracing these principles, we not only create a vibrant and diverse work environment but also actively contribute to shaping a society that is more inclusive and fair.
