Synaco focus on more than just the world of work, as a part of Synaco’s values and commitment to our community, we have been working with the amazing organisation StreetwiZe – Mobile School who developed a mobile school with hundreds of educational games. All our employees worldwide were given a Garmin to record the number of steps we were together walking for street kids. Every 150,000 kilometres collected, goes towards providing a mobile school, which would be delivered to disadvantaged communities to help bring education to those who would otherwise not have any.

The Synaco team sort some additional motivation through some internal competition and the creation of three teams looking to take out the title for most steps in Australia, energised with the added motivation of a $500 donation to a charity of the winning team’s choice. Mike Otty the Director of Synaco commented “there is nothing like a bit of internal competition for a great cause, that galvanises an already passionate team, to stride towards success”. Our eventual winner the appropriately named “Red Hot Chilli Steppers” were successful in their pursuit for glory and chose to donate the $500 sponsored prize by Synaco, to The Peter MacCallum Cancer Research Foundation. Mike Otty commented “despite the personal disappointment of not being part of the eventual winning team, everyone came away from this internal event feeling a winner, as every step was of equal value, irrespective of the total number contributed”. On the foundation chosen Mike said “I couldn’t endorse a better choice from the winning team, as unfortunately it feels like these days, we are all only one degree of separation in knowing someone who has succumbed to some form of cancer. Any support to helping our future generations tackle this disease, is one very worth supporting and only through research will we be able to take steps towards its cure”.

Synaco earlier this year has supported a number of sponsored events in which its employees have raised money for charities that are dear to our heart and align with our intrinsic values, encompassing our team spirit and raising in 2018 over $10,000. Passionate about engaging and supporting our local communities, Synaco has a calendar for 2019 of events they hope to engage not only their internal workforce, but friends, family and its contracted workforce to support to triple its fund raising in 2019.
