  • Frameworks is the kind of innovative and bold move we have come to expect from Acre. This initiative leads the way in driving a much-needed change in the Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) profession and confirms Acre’s place as a market leader. The feedback from assessing the entire Lendlease EHS team has allowed us to refocus, engage, and develop our people to drive our organizational goal of creating an incident and injury-free workplace. Utilising Acre's assessment service as part of their recruitment offering supported us to make informed hiring decisions and to seamlessly transition new staff from recruitment into development.
