Respectful and inclusive workplace

Creating an inclusive and respectful workplace for everyone is paramount to the success of Macmahon's business. Strengthening this is a focus area for Macmahon with implementation of a revised DEI framework to engage and raise awareness with both internal and external stakeholders.
