People and culture
Goodman’s highest priority during this challenging year was to support our people and our stakeholders.
Fortunately, our corporate culture and values helped bond our teams around the world, while our agile working platform enabled us to adapt to the new working arrangements made necessary by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our commitment to well-being and long-term thinking extends beyond just our people. Increasingly, developments across our portfolio feature well-being initiatives that benefit our customers too. These include health and recreation facilities, high-quality breakout spaces and, where possible, services like gymnasiums and cafés.
Goodman strives for a safe work culture with zero onsite fatalities across our global operations. We are working on gender equality in senior executive roles and prioritising human rights and business ethics in our supply chain.
