We support our staff to support the community by:
Our Community Awareness Program sees our employees volunteer on work time to help out local charities and raise funds for special appeals close to their heart. As at October 2011 staff have raised over $40,000 for a number of local and national charities, with AUSCOAL Super often matching fundraising efforts dollar for dollar.
AUSCOAL Super assisted Lifeline in their annual book collection campaign. We had a designated coordinator to collect books from staff members and facilitate delivery to Lifeline.
We launched our Corporate Fund Raising program with Movember. Twenty-three AUSCOAL Super Mo team members participated in this worthwhile program. All male senior managers participated to show their dedication to this cause. A number of staff followed this lead, demonstrating our giving culture.
AUSCOAL Super Mos raised a significant amount for the Movember cause. Weekly photos were posted to the staff intranet to provide visual progress checks of how our team members were looking with their new moustaches. At the end a ‘shave off’ was held in the staff lunch room, where staff members could donate to shave off their favourite moustache of the month. All staff were invited to attend and share in the fun!
With the fires in Victoria, AUSCOAL Super employees conducted a donation appeal. This appeal was encouraged by management with a sizable sum donated by the company in addition to employee pledges.
AUSCOAL Super’s enterprise agreement allows paid time off for staff to encourage employees to donate blood.
