1. Safety first, every time
Safety is our number one priority. We want to ensure that everyone who leaves the workplace does so in the same manner in which they arrived – safe and well. This underpins our “Work Safe. Home Safe” campaign which empowers our employees, and those we partner with, to undertake every task in a safe manner.
2. Acting responsibly
We are aware that we have a responsibility to the environment and the communities in which we operate. We want to ensure the contribution we make to the communities in which we live and work is meaningful.
3. Our people, our success
Our people are the cornerstone of our success. Meeting the expectations of our employees and tailoring individual career paths has allowed many to achieve personal success. From graduate to project manager, we have developed numerous growth programs to nurture and enhance the capabilities of our people.
All of our employees are able to access great benefits and deals through our local network of suppliers and corporate partners. These benefits and rewards include everything from health and wellbeing to retail, travel, home improvements and finance.
5. Health & Wellbeing
Healthy, happy people make great things happen, which is why we are committed to ensuring the health and wellbeing of our employees.
Through our Healthy Foundations program, all of our employees have access to a range of activities including skin checks, flu shots and seminars as well as a range of counselling, financial and nutritional services via our Employee Assistance Program.
We also hold various ‘Family Days’ throughout the year as way of saying thanks to our employees and their families for the contribution and sacrifices that are made throughout the year.
