People & Culture

Domain Objective: “Build and maintain an organisational culture that is “empowered to deliver” and be an employer of choice.”

WSA has a cultural charter to empower its people to deliver and champions a unified vision to become an employer of choice. We began developing a long-term workforce planning strategy to guide efforts in building, evolving and sustaining the right-size workforce with the necessary capabilities for the delivery of WSA objectives, from construction through to operations.

Together with government and industry agencies, we have established an Employment Skills Taskforce to support the investment of capability in vocational education and the training sector in Western Sydney.

WSA will collaborate with members of the taskforce to deliver vocational employment and opportunities for those in Western Sydney. Additionally, activities are underway to deliver a TAFE Skills Centre at the Airport site to train and develop workers in safety, and construction-related skills and programs.

We continue to build capability by continuing to attract and retain an experienced, high performing workforce, recruiting some of the best talent in the industry. The identification of talent continues to concentrate on experience and qualifications, potential for development and cultural fit.

Culturally, values are showcased through a performance framework promoting safety, integrity, inclusion, pioneering, courage and passion as fundamental success factors for driving the right behaviours and performance outcomes.

In 2019–20, WSA will continue to develop and maintain a targeted, engaged culture where WSA establishes itself as an employer of choice.
