QRC Indigenous Participation Survey
Annual survey of QRC member companies to track the levels of Indigenous employment and procurement across the resources sector
Every year, the QRC sources voluntary data from its members to provide a snapshot of Indigenous participation rates within the sector.
The survey reports on a range of indicators of Indigenous participation, including:
- Number of Indigenous persons employed by QRC member companies and total wage spend on Indigenous employees
- Characteristics of the Indigenous workforce of QRC member companies, including turnover, internal progression, training, age, gender, and occupational breakdown
- Number of Indigenous businesses participating in QRC member company supply chains and total spend on Indigenous businesses
The survey has revealed a steady growth in Indigenous employment by QRC member companies over the past few years, including higher proportions of female employees and younger employees compared to the non-Indigenous workforce. For further information about the survey, please contact the MOU partnership facilitators.
