As a successful organisation, we believe it is our duty to give back to the community. Through the SHAPE Community+ Foundation, we support a range of organisations that do incredible work for those in need. To date, our amazing team has helped raise more than $2.5 million for these worthy causes.
SeeBeyondBorders is an organisation that works hard to improve access, attendance and attention for school children in Cambodia.
Since 2013, SHAPE team members have taken part in a yearly community program to build learning environments for Cambodian schools.
MATES in Construction is a charity established to reduce suicide rates amongst Australian construction workers.
We have trained 97% of our workforce in suicide awareness, 35 Connectors (volunteers to keep people in crisis safe) and 32 ASSIST workers.
The Property Industry Foundation’s mission is to make a tangible difference to the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness.
We support PIF’s fundraising efforts through a variety of initiatives, such as their annual sailing regatta, toy drives and pro bono fitout and refurbishments.
We’re proud to have SHAPE as a national donor. They are committed to our goal to reduce youth homelessness in a range of ways. Recently, SHAPE brought their expertise to the refurbishment of an inner city community centre called The Settlement. Because of their vision and generosity, at-risk young people will now have a very welcoming, positive space to learn.
We pride ourselves on implementing best practice in environmental management and the delivery of sustainable workplaces of the future.
Our approach to the environment is externally focused and extends to our Corporate Social Responsibility programs supporting clean and green charities and organisations for the benefit of the broader community.
As a founding member of the Green Building Council of Australia, we are well placed to service project environmental design and construction requirements through our internal resources including:
- Service Engineers
- Green Star Accredited Professionals
- Design Managers
- Delivery teams
We look forward to building a sustainable future with our clients and business partners.
The Federal Government has passed legislation which calls on the Australian business community to take action on Modern Slavery by looking into their supply chains, assessing risk to people and doing what we can to improve things. SHAPE has been working away to understand this issue and create a meaningful response to address risk in our supply chain.
SHAPE aspires to be ‘The place where everyone wants to work’.
We recognise this isn’t possible without an environment where all people are treated with respect and have equal access to opportunities.
That’s why we work so hard on creating an inclusive and constructive culture where people feel comfortable to be themselves, share their ideas, and support each other to achieve great outcomes.
Our commitment to ensuring all employees have equal opportunities is endorsed and led by our CEO, Peter Marix-Evans. As well as being the right thing to do, Peter and the SHAPE leadership team know that diverse teams produce better outcomes in customer experience, employee experience, safety and quality.
