Changing communities one person at a time
When you love your work and the people you work with, extraordinary things can happen
Working in Community Services, you work hard to help your clients live better, so we want you to LiveBIG!
Our employee benefits package not only recognises the importance of the work you do, but also rewards you for it and supports your career development goals.
We want you to maximise your take home pay, retire with all the super you’ve worked hard for, focus on your health and wellbeing and support you with training to achieve your personal and professional goals.
Here’s how we help our employees to LiveBIG:
- Salary packaging with Access Pay
Salary packaging is the federal government’s recognition of the work that you do as a community services employee. It’s basically a tax break which means that a portion of your pay is paid to you before it’s taxed. It means you pay less tax and take home more money! Find out more about Access Pay.
- HESTA Superannuation
Our industry super fund understands the needs of our workforce and is committed to supporting your superannuation goals, helping you find and combine separate super accounts and maximise your retirement income. They hold regular workshops and information sessions to answer your questions and help you meet your goals.
- Fitness Passport
Our partnership with Fitness Passport means for a weekly fee you can access a variety of health and fitness suppliers in your local community. Best news is, there’s no cap on use – go to as many places as many times as you like for one small fee. If you have a family, you can take your kids to the pool, do as many yoga sessions as you like, go to the gym and send your partner to their preferred activities too!
- Paid Parental Leave
We offer 6 weeks paid leave for full-time and part-time employees and aim to support our primary care giver employees physically, psychologically, economically and socially. Our parental leave is in addition to government parental leave programs.
- Purchase Leave Program
We recognise that that Christmas/New Year period is an important time for many people to get away, spend time with family and recharge. So, we offer all employees who have been with us for a year the opportunity to purchase up to an extra two weeks of leave over the summer holiday period. You pay for the extra leave over the whole year, so it doesn’t have a huge impact on your pay just when you need it most!
- ROAR Awards
The ROAR Awards are awarded four times a year and recognise staff who are excelling in their role. Each quarter, five employees are recognised against each of our values: Excellence, Integrity, Cooperation, Empowerment and Respect. Recipients are awarded gift cards via our rewards and recognition program, Motivosity, to the value of $USD200 which means around $AUD290!
Motivosity is our recognition and reward program. Accessed online, each staff member receives $5 per month to award to someone they see doing a great job. You can also just send a message recognising how amazing they are and be recognised yourself!
- Refer a friend
We know that the best people know the best people and that’s why we encourage you to refer a friend to come and join our LiveBetter community. If your friend is still working with us after 3 months, we’ll give you $USD50 through Motivosity to say thanks!
- Supported Career Progression and Training
Our geographical footprint across regional NSW and Qld means that you don’t have to go to a big city to progress your career! We have a dedicated team of in-house training specialists who can help you identify your goals and help develop pathways to you achieving them – with us and in your chosen community.
BetterBalance is our professional and personal wellbeing portal. It focuses on issues that affect us all and provides access to webinars and resources on issues that affect everyone.
- Employee Assistance Program
We understand that life presents challenges, and we want to support you through them. Our partnership with Converge provides you with free access to counselling and support when you need it. Whatever the challenge you’re facing, Converge are there to help you through!
