Encouraging Flexible Work

Jun 3, 2021 - Attracting and retaining the best pool of talent relies on our industry supporting its workforce and empowering people to be the best they can be in all facets of their life. Encouraging flexible work practices is an essential element of this - and directions around flexibility come from the top down. Seeing senior executives within an organisation ‘practice what they preach’ around flexible working is an important aspect of driving cultural change and providing assurance to teams that it’s ‘OK’ to avail themselves of these options.

Delivering for Australia's most important asset


As the peak body of road industry stakeholders, Roads Australia provides a national forum for debate and discussion on how we can best manage, fund, maintain and renew this vital economic asset for the benefit of all Australians.


Membership of Roads Australia is your entree to the most powerful networking experience in the Australian transport and infrastructure sectors. As we like to say, the top people come because the top people come.


Roads Australia has a unique approach to policy. We work from inside the tent, providing regular opportunities for our public and private sector members to come together in our Policy Chapters to drive practical policy outcomes. It's a formula for influencing policy like no other, and it works.

  • Roads Australia Insider - 8 July 2021 Articled last week
    As Australia's largest city sees its COVID lockdown extended by a further week, it is fair to surmise that the 'return to normal' many of us hoped for at the beginning of 2021 has not materialised exactly as we hoped, or envisaged. As working from home restrictions endure for many and the closure of both domestic and international borders continue to disrupt our lives, it is important for all industries to maintain a focus on the wellbeing of their most valuable asset - their people.
