Since 1985, non-for-profit organisation Compass Housing Services has been providing secure and affordable housing for those in need. Compass Housing Services’ goal is to help those that are in dire straits and are having trouble finding and affording a place to live.
The company also strives to provide its employees a secure place to work. Each year $1,200 is dedicated per employee for training, with a further 5 paid study days per year to encourage upskilling. The group encourages teamwork, innovative thinking, leadership and responsibility and ensures that it treats the people it helps with respect, empathy and diligence.
Staff are actively involved in the group’s Health and Safety Committee, which ensures that the organisation fosters growth and a healthy work environment through mission statements and policies. The organisation has annual performance reviews and a generous KPI bonus scheme.
This persistence has seen Compass Housing Solutions recognised as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards 2015.
