Committed, Empowered and Technically Capable People
WorleyParsons has built a world‑class company through the commitment and talent of our personnel – their skill, efficiency and innovative thinking differentiate us.
WorleyParsons has implemented a number of initiatives to provide a work environment that rewards people for their commitment and performance and encourages a healthy balance between work and lifestyle. Our aim is to recruit, develop and, most importantly, retain the people who share our vision and strategy.
The quality of the opportunities at WorleyParsons and the caliber of our existing staff are major draw cards to prospective employees. We continue to search for excellent and committed staff who are specialists in their fields and who seek challenge, fair treatment and rewards for success.
Comprehensive geographic presence
Our comprehensive network of offices and operations around the world exists to ensure that our customers have immediate access to our expertise wherever they need it. WorleyParsons now has 165 offices in 41 countries.
The investment that we have made in our network enables us to provide our customers with the benefit of world‑class skills combined with deep local knowledge. This balance of global and local expertise is an essential prerequisite as customers deal with increasing complexities and pressure on performance that characterize the complex process industries and the resources & energy sectors in particular.
Balanced with this we continue with our strategy of developing a number of hubs that include High Value Engineering Centers, such as Bangkok, Beijing and Kuala Lumpur, and large resource execution centers, such as Abu Dhabi, Reading, Calgary, Houston, Kuala Lumpur, London, Melbourne and Perth which are capable of executing projects of any size.
Industry leadership in health, safety and environmental performance
Our Health, Safety and Environmental expectations are vital and integral elements of our business. Through the implementation of OneWay™, these are embedded into our management systems and processes and influence everything that we do.
Although our safety performance compares very favourably with international best practices within our industry sectors, we are taking our commitment to safety to a new level. We are actively reinvigorating our management systems and engaging our people, contractors and suppliers in the expectations and programs that we have to achieve zero harm.
OneWay™ sets our corporate expectations which, if met, will progress us towards our vision of zero harm to people and assets, and zero environmental incidents. The implementation of OneWay™ has commenced, the framework and expectations are fully developed and the supporting policies, standards and processes are ready for for application.
Focus on long term contracts and asset-based services

EcoNomics™ – Delivering profitable sustainability
EcoNomics™ is our range of services and technologies that profitably embed environmental, social and economic sustainability into project delivery, across the asset lifecycle.
We have developed our strategy to embrace the material challenges facing our business and our customers in responding to the changing operating environment and the ongoing demand for environmentally, socially and financially sustainable solutions.
Our implementation of this strategy commenced with identifying and drawing together our substantial, impressive array of capabilities embedded throughout our global business as well as in WorleyParsons Environmental group. We have established a strong set of capabilities in four key areas of Assessment, Efficiency, Treatment & Mitigation.
Success in project delivery – large and small
The continuation of favorable resource commodity prices and strong global demand is reflected in the magnitude and diversity of the greenfield mega‑projects in progress within WorleyParsons’ sectors.
Every complex process and industrial facility requires ongoing capital expenditure. Our execution methodologies deliver improvements in integrity and business performance for our customers throughout the asset lifecycle and are tailored to the specific needs of the project. This is a key differentiator for WorleyParsons in many markets, enabling customers to maximize opportunities.
Our project delivery capability is underpinned by the unique WorleyParsons Project Management Process (WPMP). The WPMP is a key feature of our Enterprise Management System (EMS) which, along with sophisticated communication infrastructure, is deployed globally to enable our operation to collaborate efficiently and effectively on projects large and small.
Outstanding operational and corporate performance
Strong growth continues to characterize our performance – through the organic development of our business in each country and through strategic, targeted acquisition. Both are possible because we strive to create a structure and a culture that is sensitively in tune with local markets and our customers. Equally, it is possible because we encourage our people to create and capitalize on opportunities and we provide strong knowledge management systems for every project and office to access best practice and world‑class expertise.
In driving this growth we stay focused on our core values. Crucial among these are systems, procedures and management that identify, measure and control financial and non‑financial risk throughout our global operation. Our focus includes the optimization of capital, strong corporate governance and operational profitability.
