It is because of them that we have been able to create a culture which we are all proud to stand up and be recognised for. A culture that is open, inclusive, equal and offers our employees the opportunity to grow and develop their careers in a supportive and stimulating environment. It is my pleasure to work with such talented people every day.

Intergraph have developed a flat organisational structure that takes their passion for innovation and strategy to create an umbrella for people looking to develop a career. This culture focuses on the company’s success as a global unified organisation, expecting employees to never let a customer down and to never abandon a colleague in need.
Believing that all of their employees are capable of excellence, Intergraph seek to bring out the best in their people by actively identifying opportunities that will help them progress their careers. This developmental focus provides a formal process to staff to help them build important skills and capabilities. Internal training programs such as face-to-face and web based learning sessions compliment external initiatives undertaken by employees and funded by Intergraph.
Intergraph has also invested in a new cloud-based Applicant Tracking System and internal job board. The system provides hiring managers with greater visibility into applicant talent pools and the recruitment process; and also provides current and future employees with visibility of career opportunities. The tool is designed to be user-friendly, allowing employees to create a profile and update their CV details, browse and apply for internal job opportunities. This focus on internal career pathways is compounded by a talent management system that identifies high potential employees, reviews staff performance and delivers individualised recognition outcomes. Arising from this system are various benefits such as gift cards, flexible working arrangements, discounted health services and free professional memberships.
Additionally, Intergraph is committed to providing and maintaining a safe working environment for the health, safety and welfare of their employees. They conduct regular consultations with employees to ensure that their policies and workplace health and safety programs operate efficiently and that health and safety issues are regularly reviewed.
