Diversity & Inclusion

For us inclusion means people being able to bring their true selves to work and creating an environment that supports them to be the best person they can be. Diversity for us is a business decision to ensure we have different viewpoints, perspectives, which lead us to better decision making and outcomes.

It is essential to our company culture that we represent the outside community within our organisation, whether that be age, race, gender or ability. We have a gender diverse workplace and love to celebrate each and every one of our employees. Check out our recent International Womens Day 2020 Video, where our staff explain what this day means to them.

In early 2020 we joined Castle Personnel’s Inclusive 100 campaign, where we committed to improve our diversity and include people with all levels of ability in our workforce.

 

Our community provides such significant support to us and we believe it is important to pay this forward. Therefore we like to give back to the community through a range of programs. We offer industry placement and work experience opportunities for people to advance their capability and experiences. Many of our people volunteer their time to community programs that make a difference including school education programs and women’s mentoring programs.

We get to change the lives of patients every day, but we also strive to change the lives of those who work for us.
