Strategic goals

We will be relentless in our actions to achieve our strategic goals of being a great place to work, becoming known throughout the industry for our operational excellence and being the partner of choice to our clients, supply chain partners and industry influencers.

Great Place to Work - a place where everyone feels valued, engaged, motivated and understands the direction of the Group and how they can contribute to it. Achieving this across the Group will make us an incredibly powerful force.

Operational Excellence is not simply about perfectly pouring concrete and expertly installing dry lining. We all play a part in the product we leave behind and operational excellence is about getting better every day.

Partner of Choice is based on the simple premise of building and valuing relationships. Acting with care, passion, humility and authenticity is the best way to get positive outcomes for everyone.

Our strategic goals will be underpinned by our financial management and targets.

To enable our vision, sustainability will be the golden thread weaved seamlessly into the wider Group strategy and becomes the way we operate. Careys Foundation will also play a key role in us achieving our vision and supporting our strategic goal of great place to work.

We will celebrate our strategy successes and clear the path for improvement. In order to build confidence that we are moving forward and on the right path, the plan to support the strategy will make sure that our operating and reporting systems are clear and are centred around our goals.

Having worked with Careys on multiple projects over more than 15 years, they are an organisation that I hold the in highest regard. They always show themselves to be passionate, genuine and committed to their projects but have a set of behaviours that are to be admired. High integrity, a continuous desire to improve, open and collaborative with a long term focus on meaningful industry relationships.
