5Total Revenue less Total Operating Expenses less Total Employee Related Costs (TERC) divided by TERC. As reported to DJSI.

6 2016 and 2017 result includes UGL’s performance, for comparison purposes, following the acquisition although CIMIC did not control UGL during 2016. On a like-for-like basis, excluding UGL the 2017 Potential Class 1 figure would be 67 and the 2016 figure would be 98.

7 As of 31 December 2014 the numbers of employees including the discontinued operations of JHG and Ventia was 45,214. See note below. 

8 For the purposes of environmental, safety and other ratios based on people numbers or hours, the base is 28,535 employees which excludes UGL as of 31 Dec 2016 as the Group did not have control during the year and does not report UGL’s operating performance. 

9 Reflects total employees from continuing operations as at 31 December 2015; total employees including continuing operations was 45,214 – 22,355 in Australia and 22,859 in the Group’s international operations.

10 Total employees includes both direct employees of CIMIC Group and a proportion of the headcount of indirect employees from investments as follows: HLG Contracting (45%), Devine (59) and Ventia (47%) as at 31 December 2017. 

11 Total personnel costs divided by the total number of direct employees. For 2014, the ratio is based on continuing operations and total employees of 36,512. Ratio is distorted because it includes redundancy cost and most of the redundancies occurred in the second half of the year, thereby inflating the ratio. For 2013, ratio is based on continuing operations, restated to match 2014. 

12 Given that a large proportion of the workforce is hired on a project basis, overall employee turnover rates are not an effective method to measure staff retention. Therefore, turnover rates including only permanently employed staff has been provided.

13 CIMIC had one female Director until 10 November 2016.

14 Number and percentage for, and from, 2017 includes employees and subcontractors reflecting increased data capture.

15 Includes Indigenous employees of JHG and Services until 2014.
