John Holland and the Voice Referendum

On Saturday, 14 October 2023, Australians will have their say in the Referendum on a Voice to parliament.

Like many organisations, John Holland deeply considered our role in this important decision.

After listening – we’ve chosen to respect the diverse views of our employees and not take a Yes/No position as a company. Instead, we’re focusing on providing trusted resources so everyone can be as informed as possible. We’re also concerned about the toll that media and public commentary may be having on our people, so we’re holding First Nations-facilitated check-in/wellbeing sessions to provide support and space for sharing and connection. 

To understand more about our decision and the process we followed, we invite you to watch this video.

Through this process, we learnt that our role as a company is to listen deeply, and we’ll be building on these lessons and connections as our reconciliation journey continues over the months and years ahead. This important work never stops.
