Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is the proud operator of Brisbane Airport (BNE), an award-winning Airport that connects communities, drives innovation and supports sustainable growth. BAC aims to deliver value to its employees, communities, customers and shareholders. 

Together with the 24,000 people who work at BNE, they are building an Airport City that connects people, creates community, and fuels the economy. BNE contributes almost $5 billion annually to the economy as Australia’s third busiest and most domestically connected airport, and over the next decade, BAC will invest $5.6 billion to expand it, connecting communities and creating jobs.

From the hundreds of projects underway to the 2032 Olympic Games, BAC has an exciting future ahead—and they believe their employees are key to this future’s success. This diverse and talented group of almost 450 professionals who work for BAC shapes the unique culture and reputation.

BAC seeks to provide an engaging and exciting work environment that enables them to attract and retain new colleagues whose skills and drive will ensure they have continued success. Their most important priority is keeping their people safe and recognising that looking after their wellbeing includes giving them opportunities to thrive. Just as the airport is a meeting place for people of all backgrounds, they are committed to ensuring BAC reflects the diversity of their customers and communities.

To do this, BAC has many initiatives underway to engage its team and maintain a unique culture. This includes team strategy days, social events, regular all-staff forums, employee feedback opportunities, and staff consultative groups. BAC also motivates its people through reward and incentive structures – from offering employee performance-based bonuses to a Long-Term Incentive Program and ongoing recognition for excellence.

According to BAC’s 2022 Employee Effectiveness Survey, conducted by the Korn Ferry Group, we had a 90% response rate and a rating in the global high-performance range for employee engagement and enablement. Their employees are engaged and committed, with 83% of employees stating that BAC motivates them to do more than what is required, which is 19% higher than industry standards.

BAC also understands that success requires constant improvement and is committed to this journey. BAC aspire to be one of the world’s top employers and deliver on their vision to connect the world and create the future.
