Thiess is a global mining services provider, partnering with our clients to deliver excellence in open cut and underground mining in Australia, Asia, Africa, and now the Americas.

We’re focused on creating an inclusive environment to allow our people to bring their best selves to work because they feel safe, included, and empowered. 

We prioritize an inclusive workplace through our diversity and inclusion vision--everyone matters always.

A culture of inclusion creates an environment where people can bring their best selves to work because they feel safe, empowered, and valued as a member of our team. This respect for differences in people, thoughts, skills, experiences, and backgrounds then drives excellence and innovation.

Our advocacy for diversity and inclusion is governed by a global strategy on gender equality, first nation peoples, cultural diversity, and an inclusive culture. To support real and sustainable change, this is brought to life by our annual country action plans. 

We consider the cultural and physical environments we provide; implement training, development, and pathway programs; create employment opportunities, and build strategic partnerships. Thiess respects the history of indigenous communities and the contributions their people make to society. We seek to foster authentic, long-term relationships with Indigenous people in the communities in which we operate.
