Crown is recognised as one of Australia’s leading employers. Our learning and development programs at Crown College, our Indigenous Employment Program and our disability employment program are all considered best practice, leading the way for other Australian workplaces.
Crown’s Australian resorts remain the largest single-site private sector employers in their states, with more than
15,000 people working at Crown Melbourne and Crown Perth in over 700 different roles.
In 2015, Crown College provided approximately 385,000 hours of training to employees in Melbourne and Perth. Significantly, since inception, Crown has graduated over 7,300 apprentices and trainees.
To make learning and development more accessible to employees, Crown invested in a new Learning Management System and a new Contractor Management System.
Crown is active in its responsibility to provide employment opportunities for Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders through its best practice Indigenous Employment Program and we were proud to employ our 450th Indigenous employee in August 2015. In recognition of our Indigenous Employment Program, Crown was awarded the Community Contribution Award at the 2015 Australian Business Awards for the second consecutive year.
In July 2015, Crown launched its second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in support of its goal for Indigenous employment. Crown is one of only thirteen companies out of 600 to be awarded Elevate status for its RAP by Reconciliation Australia, recognising our work towards real change.
CROWNability was launched across Crown’s Australian properties to support Crown’s strategy to provide an
employment pathway for people with disability and builds on Crown’s commitment to building and maintaining a diverse workforce. The launch of CROWNability coincided with the International Day of People with Disability where Crown also proudly announced that Kurt Fearnley, the acclaimed Para-Olympian and marathon champion, would be the official CROWNability Ambassador.
Working closely with Disability Employment Service providers, job opportunities have been created across a range of occupations, with 76 people being employed under the program by the end of the financial year.
Crown’s commitment to diversity and inclusion has been solidified by Crown Resorts CEO Rowen Craigie joining the Victorian chapter of the Male Champions of Change. The Male Champions of Change is a high-profile group of Chief Executive Officers of local, national and global organisations, who are committed to advancing gender equality across Australian organisations and in the community. Through this new membership, Crown will continue to explore strategies to reduce gender inequality in Australian workplaces.
