Valuing our people
Engage Educate Evolve
At Cheetham people are our business. We foster creativity in an open and inclusive environment in which our people can strive to be their best and achieve their goals. As a key employer within rural communities across Australia, Cheetham is committed to investing in the development of all our people and most importantly to build the skills-base of the communities in which we operate.
We actively promote diversity and equality in our workplace. We are committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for all employees, suppliers, contractors and visitors. We deal with our people in good faith, while respecting our relationships with our people and any representatives they may choose. These commitments not only meet all legal requirements, but also cultivate a highly motivated, productive and committed workforce that drives our business success.
Our people development strategy is about:
Engage our people, by providing an environment where they can be innovative and find new and better ways of doing things;
Educating our people, by giving them on the job experience and opportunities to develop their skills;
Evolving our people, by providing a workplace that allows them to realise their goals.
Our philosophy is with great people, we will achieve great business that will drive great results to sustain business success.
Cheetham recognises that our employees are constantly juggling commitments of home, work and personal lives. Our work policy promotes flexibility in the work place to respond to these challenges.
Learning and Development
Cheetham has actively been building a dedicated workforce with quality employees. Our new people development strategy focuses on providing more challenging development opportunities for our people for current and future roles within a climate of continual learning.
Our learning and development program ensures that we provide appropriate and meaningful learning opportunities so that our employees can reach their maximum potential, to develop personally and professionally.
Cheetham believes in paying competitively within each market in which we operate. We hold each other accountable for performance and reward employees commensurate with their performance.
Our remuneration and benefits are reviewed regularly to ensure they are fair and in line with the current market.
Cheetham encourages employees to report any form of suspected fraud, corruption or other unacceptable behaviour in the workplace. Cheetham has an independent hotline that can be used by our people to make an anonymous report. The Code of Conduct also offers a channel of communication, support and protection for employees who report such incidents.
