Life at Leidos
Life at Leidos
At Leidos, we offer meaningful and engaging careers, a collaborative culture, and support for your career goals, all while nurturing a healthy work-life balance.
Be recognised. Be the difference
Job satisfaction and business success thrive in a positive working environment. Every day, we are developing a culture where collaboration, transparency and flexibility are in-built, innovation thrives, individuals are recognized, development opportunities are clear, and new initiatives are being launched all the time.
Celebrating our differences
We want our people to feel valued for their unique qualities, ideas and perspectives. It ensures a sense of belonging and underpins our success as a business. Events such as International Women’s Day, RUOK Day and Taste of Harmony are all central to our calendar.
Sharing knowledge and experience
Our Advocacy Groups and Communities of Practice help ensure likeminded people, irrespective of where they work within the organisation, are able to collaborate and learn within their interest or professional groups.
Listening to our people
We work hard to make sure that everyone feels challenged to do their best work in an environment where they feel they belong. Our annual Employee Engagement survey, Leidoscope, provided rich insights into what our people feel is working well and where we can do better.
Recognising our achievements
Everyone likes to be thanked, so we have developed a range of tools from simple Kudos cards (thanks to a colleague for helping out) and monetary gift vouchers (recognition for a great job well done) through to our annual Leidos Australia Values Award (LAVA) events held simultaneously in Canberra and Melbourne.
Regular team and company events are held throughout the year to keep everyone informed of our progress as a business. We also produce weekly company updates covering a range of business and social topics.
We are involved in a number of community-related initiatives either as an official partner or by raising funds for causes our people believe passionately in.
An inclusive workforce
We believe diversity and inclusion create the cohesive and collaborative teams that drive innovation. Differences in thought, style, backgrounds, and opinions are valued here.
A word about diversity & inclusion
At Leidos, Inclusion is about creating an environment where everyone feels welcome, valued, respected and supported. Embracing diversity means understanding and recognising that each of us is unique, and that our differences are our greatest strength. These are much more than goals or campaigns. They are central to building a great place to work. Because together, we are better.
