Diversity and InclusionOur Solutions
The First Step: Be Authentic and Genuine
Since 1996, Tecside has been building strong succession pipelines, unlocking employee value proposition and retaining the best people. And now, it’s even stronger with our diversity and inclusion services. We achieve diversity with inclusion, and it starts with a conversation that includes authentic and genuine questions. What we’ve achieved in our workplace, we are retaining and growing.
The Competitive Advantage of Diversity and Inclusion
The results are in; equality equals more money. If you have a more diverse and inclusive workforce, profits increase. And, if you have above average diversity scores, your innovation revenue will be higher. We can increase diversity for you, which has a positive impact on reputation and profitability. We know because we’ve done it. We’ve all got to keep our biases in check. It’s a team effort that’s collaborative and is about listening, learning and action.
Become a Magnet of Talent for Diversity and Inclusion
We elevate candidates based on job fit, not demographics. A laser focus on diversity and creating a culture of inclusion means people will stay. We get a diverse and inclusive talent pool by updating and changing the way we write job descriptions. We gather feedback to make sure no one feels overlooked in the workplace. We listen. We ask questions. We listen some more. We track and review promotion trends and we’re constantly working on our unconscious bias.
Referrals are an important part of recruitment, but they can also lead to hires that are homogenous. We’ll talk about ways you can minimise this in your business recruitment strategy. Tecside’s diversity and inclusion team can provide diversity and inclusion consultations that ensure your employees are engaged, respected and recognised at all times through the lifecycle of employment in your organisation.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Services in Australia
We understand that each company has varying degrees of diversity and inclusion goals and strategies. Rather than a one-size-fits-all model for diversity and inclusion recruitment, we partner with our clients to deeply understand their diversity targets to develop and implement an attraction strategy. Diversity and inclusion are not static. Ongoing review of the workforce, client requirements and a response to changing needs are key. We offer diversity and inclusion consultancy in Australia as a value-add service and will work closely with the project to identify an appropriate target for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment.
Empower and Employ
We are proud to have an endorsed Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) that ensures the best outcomes for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander candidates and partnering clients. Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Employment Program has a dedicated manager who works with our partners to increase cultural and social participation across the workforce. We’ll develop and successfully execute social and cultural inclusion programs that are flexible and tailored to ultimately create employment opportunities.
It’s really positive to see a national company such as Tecside Group commit to a meaningful Journey of Reconciliation. We all need to start somewhere and this is a great first step. I congratulate Tecside on their first ever RAP and look forward to seeing some encouraging growth through education and inclusiveness.

Creating a Diversity and Inclusion Blueprint
It’s done in phrases that starts with a consultation—it’s complimentary and obligation-free. We collaborate with your key stakeholders to define the desired outcomes. After that, we get to work and present recommendations for process improvements and clearly defined objectives with suggestions on any cultural or community liaisons who may need to be included in the solution. Deliverables come next. The diversity and inclusion project management then starts followed by recruitment and deployment and finally mentoring and training arrangements.
Acknowledgement to Land Statement
Tecside acknowledges and celebrates the First Australians on whose traditional lands we meet and work. We recognise their living culture and unique role in the life of the region, and pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
