For the community
At Harvey Developments, we base ourselves in the communities where we work and our employees are local to those places. It is therefore in our best interest to build strong and healthy communities.
Through our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, we have been involved in a number of sponsored community development projects.
We have upgraded sports facilities for free and covered the cost of freight for the Sports Carnival in Santa Teresa while our workforce was on site. We have constructed two — half basketball courts in Yuendumu at reduced price for the benefits of the youth in the community.
We seek to give back to the community by identifying their needs through our Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.
We take great pride in being able to provide employment opportunities within the community as part of an ongoing strategy for local engagement. We have been doing this since the company established in 2010. We regularly create job opportunities for Indigenous Youth in the community, giving them a chance to actively engage in construction works. We have seen this empower the young people on community with employable skills for future career enhancements and believe that this a great positive impact.
On top of this, we are also committed to the concept of local industry participation and the fostering of industry development in the Northern Territory. We always use local suppliers and subcontractors, we have no reason to consider outside NT.
We have developed good relationships not only with the local suppliers and subcontractors but most importantly with the communities we worked for.
