This is demonstrated by multiple employees having completed their entire career lifespan at the company. This has been established with the view that if employees are valued within the company they are more likely to be more productive and willing to get more involved in the company.

Employees are valued and benefit through many initiatives and a range of company funded activities such as; wellbeing programs, social events, and extensive professional development opportunities through their Employment Engagement Calendar. Work flexibility of hours and location of work is encouraged, and employees are provided with dual desktop set ups to enable this. Annual salary and performance reviews take place and employees are encouraged to complete an employee satisfaction survey.
