20 August / Training

Hutchies Training is currently taking expressions of interest for enrolments in the next Hutchies Diploma of Building & Construction Course. The course has been Hutchified to incorporate Hutchies construction methodologies, quality processes, systems and our people. Hutchies men and women from Darwin to Melbourne were part of last year’s course so location or distance is no barrier. Hutchies was stoked that this year over one third of the group that completed the course were women. Let's hope we can keep on advancing this number for years to come! Contact Warren Belford for more information.

NAIDOC Week is about celebrating Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and achievements and you will see lots of different events and ceremonies around your communities around this.

Some of our offices particularly Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne have had small celebrations to mark the occasion. 

The annual NAIDOC Awards were on last weekend and we’d like to acknowledge the brother of our own Glen Duncan (Indigenous Coordinator – Sydney), Dean Duncan who won the 2019 NAIDOC Person of the Year for the tireless work he does in education (see more here https://www.naidoc.org.au/awards/winner-profiles). Congratulations to the Duncan Family from all of us at Hutchies.

This year’s theme is titled Voice, Treaty, Truth, which were the three elements to come out of the Uluru Statement. Those elements translate to:

  • Voice – we want to be heard; we want be involved in decisions that affect us.
  • Treaty – we are one of the only democracies in the world that do not have a treaty or formal acknowledgement with its Indigenous people.
  • Truthour story of how Australia was colonised must be told; we have a very dark history and it’s time for it to be shared and for all us to own it.

If you want to know more please visit https://www.naidoc.org.au/get-involved/2019-theme or ask anyone from the Hutchies’ Training team.

Hutchies now has its very own Trademutt high vis shirts for employees! 

Trademutt is a social enterprise workwear brand by tradies for tradies. Its goal is to tackle mens’ suicide in Australia head on, and in doing so, make Aussie tradies look great, feel great and be part of a movement that will change the face of mens’ mental health forever.

Hutchies worked closely with Trademutt to design our very own special edition shirt. It's for anyone at Hutchies to wear, whether it's on site, in the office or at the monthly Friday BBQ.

These special shirts are free of charge and won't count towards your annual allocation because we want as many out there as possible. Head to the Hutchies' Shop or click the links below to get one now!
