Giving Hands to Zonta House Refuge Association
A group of AMCAP staff spent a full day assisting Zonta House Refuge Association with maintenance work at one of their properties. Gardening, rubbish removal, cleaning, painting and pruning were some of the work done to the property. Zonta’s maintenance person only works 8 hours per week and to do the amount of work completed in one day would have taken weeks to schedule and complete.
“It all went pretty well. We all did a good job, and everyone was busy doing something. At the end you could definitely see the improvement on the house” said volunteer Liliana Arbelaez.
Well done to all the volunteers (left to right): Cindy Zhang, Liliana Arbelaez, Neil Jensen, Zac Holbrook, Elaine Tomlin, Paul Cutiar, Stacey Grace and Adam Hilton for going the extra mile to our community.
Annual Business Planning & Strategy Workshop
Team building & the importance of openness, honesty & straight talk at work were some of the topics of discussion at this years annual business planning & strategy workshop. AMCAP & Skipper Transport Parts management participated in a two and a half day event co-hosted by Malcolm Dix from The Bullshift Company. The highlight of the event was a team building exercise which saw the team supporting Kinship Connections and Ngalla Maya who work to inspire and commit former inmates to training and education opportunities that lead to employment. AMCAP’s management team were challenged to work together to build 5 children’s bicycles which were donated to the 2 charities.
Merry Christmas and Happy 2018
The team at AMCAP would like to thank you for your support in 2017 & wish you a safe and Merry Christmas.
Going the Extra Mile – from City to Surf
AMCAP kicked off their GEM “Go the extra mile” Health and Wellbeing program last Sunday with an energetic team participating in WA’s biggest community sporting event the Chevron City to Surf.
The City to Surf is Activ Foundation’s major fundraising event and a state-wide demonstration of personal achievement and community support.
Kevin Yap (GM Mining & Industrial), and his wife Anita and young child Xavier, joined Laszlo Harsanyi (Manager Digital Platforms & Product Marketing) and his partner Holly Byrne, along with Phil Pledger (Product Manager) and Sai Alla (IT Analyst ) to take on the 4km leg of the event.
“In order for AMCAP employees to perform at their best, we recognise the importance of work life balance and encourage a healthy and less stressful lifestyle, said Jason Mance, HR Manager.
As part of the program AMCAP subsidises entry fees into sporting events, provides healthy food choices at their onsite cafeteria and offers mental health support and counselling services to staff.
“We are really proud of our staff and their families for taking part in this iconic sporting event and also for their fundraising efforts that will help the Activ Foundation provide necessary support to people living with disability to live the life they choose”, said Jason.
