CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY 

ISEC is committed to working in a responsible, ethical and sustainable manner at all times.

ISEC’s corporate social responsibility commitment reflects our responsibility to clients, shareholders and the communities in which we operate.

Consistent and open engagement with our stakeholders is important to building strong relationships, maintaining trust and enhancing business performance. We regularly engage with a broad range of stakeholders including clients, governments, regulators, staff, suppliers and the wider community.

We aim to be a responsible business that meets the highest standards of ethics and professionalism. Our corporate social responsibility spans across five key areas which include:

Compliance & Business Ethics

We employ ethical business practices consistent with not only legislative requirements but those in the interest of the environment and the communities in which we operate it. ISEC has a robust internal audit program to review its practices in particular as it relates to finance, labour, safety and environment. We recognise the challenges of dealing with large dispersed workforce and are therefore committed to ensuring that this program remains in place.

Environment

Our aim is to empower our people to gain the skills and knowledge to manage complex interaction between people and the environment and to satisfy our clients desire to engage service providers who are committed to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.

At the heart of our Environment and Sustainability practices is a commitment by all at ISEC to “do the right thing” for:

  • Our customers
  • Our staff
  • Our suppliers
  • The environment; and
  • The broader Australian Community

Workforce Diversity

We recognise that our most important assets are our people. The experience, skills and views of our people facilitate the delivery of a wide variety of services to our clients. We support our people to realise their full potential, we encourage innovation and we reward achievement.

ISEC is committed to making positive progress to increase diverse representation at all levels of ISEC and sustain an inclusive workplace for all our people.

We invest time and effort into our internal onboarding and orientation process, with a focus on of training and development. This training is structured to communicate, recognize and encourage the importance of inclusion. As well as our own internal training programs we also engage with organisations such as ACON who offer educational services to our workforce with the aim of increasing our knowledge of LGBTQ people and communities, and provide guidance on inclusive practice.

Community

Our goal in the community is to make positive impact in the lives of the communities in which we operate in; one of the ways we aim to do this is through charitable donations towards organisations such as The Black Dog Institute.

ISEC is a long-standing supporter of The Black Dog Institute. We believe in taking a public stance for mental health and is committed to help in changing the dial on mental illness statistics for everyone. Our support contributes to expert researchers, developers, educators and innovators to continue and pioneer mental health programs for the 50% of Australians who will experience a mental illness in their lifetime.

Cultural Awareness

We acknowledge and pay our respects to the traditional owners and custodians on whose land we walk, work and live.
