Now in its 100th year, Hutchinson Builders is Queensland’s largest privately owned construction company, employing more than 1000 people including 160 Australian Apprentices. It is committed to developing in-house skills and spends about $3.7 million annually on education and training. Hutchinson believes that one of the fundamental keys to achieving and sustaining high levels of motivation within its workforce is a comprehensive and committed approach to the design and implementation of professional and personal development programs.
In a unique partnership with government, Hutchinson provides dynamic industry-based training to pre-apprentices on a real construction site through their privately owned and managed Gold Coast School of Construction.
Hutchinson Builders was awarded the Employer of the Year Award at the 2011 Australian Training Awards.
