Our commitment to local employment is prioritized in our Approach to People Management Policy and is guided by our Local Content Standard, which promotes strategies to enhance employment directly from the regions in which we operate. Our local employment objectives address the demographics and empowerment initiatives of our respective national settings, while embedding our inclusive culture to attract talent from around the world.

We continue to maintain high local employment rates by targeting recruitment efforts at local and national levels. Employment opportunities for unskilled roles give preference to neighbouring communities.
