Employees are encouraged to work together to improve each other’s knowledge and to seek information  from one another on how to improve work techniques and procedures.
  • Communication of company values to every member of the company through a process of discussion, feedback and improvement through discussing values in relation to actual practice at weekly work in progress meetings.

As we grow, we are committed to giving back to the community in forms of sponsorship, for example, local children’s sports teams or donations to The Red Cross, and encouraging and supporting the volunteer work of our employees. Flexible work arrangements are a must for the ability of employees to participate in their communities, so we will continue to work on the best fit for both the organisation and the community to assist all our employees to fully participate in life outside of work.
