At Toll, we utilise our global network to support and promote initiatives that support happier, healthier and safer communities. As the largest professional road user in Australia, it is only natural that we should play a role in making our roads safer. This is why we are particularly committed to supporting initiatives that improve road safety in our community.
Toll Driver Reviver
Toll is proud to be the national and naming sponsor of the Toll Driver Reviver program. Toll Driver Reviver is a community program that has been operating in Australia for more than 28 years. Powered by volunteers from a range of service organisations and community groups, the program provides dedicated rest stops which help to reduce fatigue and promote road safety. With over 150 dedicated Toll Driver Reviver sites operating across Australia during public holidays and school holidays, Toll Driver Reviver is there to make sure that you get to your destination safely.
Toll Global Forwarding (TGF) Educating Heroes, USA
Since 2011, the TGF Educating Heroes Foundation has provided funding to assist in the education of children who have lost a parent, or whose parent was severely injured, in combat within the USA Military. With scholarships being provided via the Fisher House Foundation, TGF Educating Heroes is proud to have supported many children to gain a quality education across the USA.
As a global organisation, we recognise the important role that working in partnership with our Indigenous populations plays in building meaningful and trusted relationships.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement
In Australia, Toll aims to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s journey to reconciliation. For many years Toll has been engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities throughout Australia in relation to employment, training, procurement of business and in-kind support.
In 2012, we developed a national strategy to better acknowledge the role that first Australians play within our business, communities, suppliers, customers and the wider society. Since then, we have made many steps towards reconciliation, but we know the journey is not over.
To see what we are doing in 2019, please see our Indigenous Engagement Plan.
Cultural Diversity in New Zealand
The role of Tangata Whenua (Maori) form a cornerstone in cultural leadership and understanding in our New Zealand operations. Toll leadership has for many years understood that Pacifica, Indo-China and other Pakeha cultures flourish well in partnership with each other when their cultural beliefs and tolerances are recognised, engrained and integral to how we do business. As well as having blessings and cultural support protocols in place, we have a Maori Chaplin available to support all employees. For more than 7 years, Toll, together with Kiwirail, has been operating Te Kupenga Mahi (workplace network), providing cadetships and supporting employment opportunities for Maori communities across the Toll business.
