Why exercise can make you a better employee. I’ve never been one of those people who loves to work out and lately, I haven’t been feeling my best.  I have succumbed to the winter blue’s, lacking energy, motivation and that constant feeling of not having enough sleep. This has impacted upon my feel good at home but also my creativity at work. Even though I’m not exercise-obsessed, I am obsessed with feeling my best and getting back into a regular exercise was my new challenge after falling of the exercise wagon some months ago! So, I decided to [...]

Igniting Team Spirit

Igniting Team Spirit Some of my most enjoyable and successful roles have been when I have had a great team around me. Ask anyone what they love most about work and in most cases, the first thing they mention is 'the people'. We spend a massive proportion of our life at work and we’re with our teammates far more than our loved ones, so liking your colleagues is important. Good teamwork makes the workplace a better place to be   So, this got me thinking, ‘what does it take to create that happy workforce?’ Is it the employees that make work a better place to be? or is it the structured ethos of the organisations?    Whatever [...]

Cold Weather Cold Weather Hazards and How To Avoid Them    Winter is often a welcome change in Australia after our long, hot summers. With the southern states such as Tasmania, Victoria, SA, ACT and parts of NSW often experiencing freezing overnight temperatures – especially during winter, workers may face cold and possibly slippery conditions on work sites.  Working outdoors is an inevitable part of the job for many people across the country.

It Starts With Us Do you have a calm persona in your workplace, then you get home and yell at your kids?  Do you ever read a really inspirational quote or blog and think, “Yes! I’m going to think that way!” Then life gets busy and it never quite happens?  Do you ever feel like you’re two different people living in the same body? Wanting to be one way, but acting as another?  Everyone wants to become the best version of themselves, but few actually do. We’re our own worst enemies when it comes to achieving success, chasing our dreams, and living a [...]

Notification of Injury

By |July 26th, 2019|Career|0 Comments

Notification of Injury Don’t delay…report today.  On the job injuries are more common than you think.  In fact, laborers are three times more likely to become injured at work than workers in any other industries.  It’s a risky business!    Many people who get injured at work think that the pain will go away in a couple of days, so they don’t want to go to the trouble of reporting an incident.  Imagine this scenario, you go to work on Friday and injure your back lifting something heavy.  You decide to go home, rest and see how it feels [...]
