Over time, we have carefully cultivated our culture to motivate and inspire people. Culture is the lifeblood
of ComLink. Our culture is inclusive, supportive, fun, caring, compassionate, collaborative and respectful.
We absolutely care about our clients but we care equally about our employees. ComLink is about having
positive and happy people contributing to a cause that changes people's lives for the better. When you
are surrounded by like-minded people who want to make a difference in the world, that makes for a pretty
awesome place to work!
Staff Reward and Recognition - We have our very own Reward and Recognition program which
is designed to recognise and reward performance excellence, particularly in the areas of (yep you guessed
it, Company Culture…. see I told you it is important to us) as well as customer service and innovation
and creativity. These are quarterly awards, where winning nominees will receive a gift card, a super hero
badge and a morning tea in your honour. Outside of this, employee recognition is just part of how we
do business. We have high-5 boards set up in every regional office where anyone can give another employee
a high-5 for doing a great job. When we receive compliments for our staff, messages are sent to their
entire team recognising them for their successes.
Health and Wellness
As much as we're committed to the health and wellness of our clients, ComLink is committed to the health
and wellbeing of its employees.
Health and Wellness Calendar - We have incorporated an annual health and wellness calendar
which provides a range of activities targeted at enhancing the physical and emotional wellness of our
employees. Our health and wellness program is designed and run by our employees, with our wellness ambassadors
playing a key role. Each of our regional offices participate in a number of social events, including
fun runs, and fitness challenges. Our pot luck lunches are a major hit, where we all bring in one of
our favourite dishes and share a meal together. Here at ComLink, we love food and it is a great way to
bring the team together.
Social Support - Yes, we are happy to put it out there, the work that we do (as rewarding
and meaningful as it is) can be challenging at times. And our employees have told us that social support
from family, supervisors and co-workers makes a real difference. ComLink is committed to providing social
support opportunities for our teams, so that they can get together, talk, chat, debrief, get feedback,
cry, laugh, whatever emotion they need to express to feel well. We actively educate our employees on
how to take care of themselves and develop their own self-care strategies.
Employee Assistance Program - ComLink get it. We know that life can get crazy and sometimes
it can just be good to talk to another human, who is not your spouse or work colleague or Mum, to get
a little bit of extra support. ComLink offers employees and their immediate family members access to
a free, confidential counselling service, a service that you can call on to receive some practical and
Annual Flu Vaccinations - To help protect employees during the flu season, ComLink provides
a free annual flu vaccination to any employees who chose to take up this initiative.
Flexibility - We know that balance is key to a successful career. And we will work with
you to achieve that balance. Where we are able to alter work patterns, including variable start and finish
times, offer job-sharing or enable working from home we will work with you to support such options.
Additional Day Off - Our salaried employees have the opportunity to take an additional day
off each month to spend however they want. Whether it is making those medical or hair appointments,
watching your kid at their athletics carnival or just taking some much needed “me time”; however you
choose to spend it, in a world where non-one seems to have enough of this sought after commodity called
time, it is gold!
Salary Packaging - One of the benefits of being a not-for-profit organisation is that employees
(all employees, whether casual, PT or FT) can salary package and pay for everyday living expenses (such
as mortgage, rent and household items) using pre-tax income. Depending on individual circumstances and
the amount an employee chooses to package, take-home pay can be increased and tax payments reduced; now
we are talking!
Private Health Insurance and Superannuation - ComLink has partnered with Medibank Private
to provide employees and their families with discounted private health insurance premiums. In addition
to the member benefits, employees receive an ongoing 5% corporate discount. Unless employees choose their
own nominated fund, ComLink makes superannuation contributions to our default fund, SunSuper, which is
a reputable industry fund.
Flare Benefits - ComLink has an HR platform called Flare. One of the great things about
flare is that it gives employees access to Flare Rewards where you can save on groceries, fuel, fun and
more by purchasing discounted Gift Cards and Vouchers; from BCF to Woolies, to Event Cinemas we have
got you covered.
Career Pathways and Paid Study Leave - We are an organisation which supports career pathway
opportunities and we are building a culture where learning and development is encouraged and valued.
We have a strong record of promoting existing employees into higher positions, and the success of these
employees can be attributed to, at least in part, training that they have undertaken and skills that
they have learned along the way. We offer paid study leave for our trainees and are willing to negotiate
paid time off to study for employees who are undertaking their own professional development training.
Red 25 - ComLink is a proud member of Red 25 and offers employees paid time off work to make
blood and plasma donations on a regular basis. We are all about giving back to the community and this
is just one small way that we as an organisation can do just that.
Project Opportunities and Continuous Improvement - ComLink is interested in hearing from
our employees about what would make ComLink better. We encourage employees to submit continuous improvement
logs because we want to strengthen our processes. As a Company we are visionary and forward thinking,
and we are not silly enough to think that management has the monopoly on good ideas. Hence, we introduced
our ComLink Intrapreneurs program to seek ideas from our employees, and support them to create projects
around their ideas, to help us maintain our innovative edge and stay ahead of the pack. Everybody wins!
