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.
To explore these issues and set out how senior industry leaders can support flexible work practices, RA's Marlie Curtis sat down with Kelly Maslin, Vice President and Executive Director Operations – People and place Solutions, Delivery – New Zealand and South East Australia, Jacobs; Cathal O’Rourke, Managing Director, Laing O’Rourke and John Galvin, Executive Vice President – APAC, Clough.

RA Fellows took part in a webinar with Philip Helberg, Chief Executive Officer, Infrastructure WA where he reflected on the nature of leadership, his own career path and key lessons learnt along the way.
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.
The roads industry contributes over $200 billion of economic value in Australia each year.
The Australian road network covers more than 877,000 kilometres, of which 73 per cent is controlled by local government.
There are more than 37,000 road bridges across Australia.
More than three quarters of all passenger kilometres travelled in Australia occur on roads.
Well over half a million Australians rely on roads for their full-time employment.
Public transport is a major user of our road network. In Melbourne, for example, more than 80 per cent of all public transport kilometres are travelled on roads.
