People, Community and Environment


It is very important to the board that our people are able to reach their full potential – it is good for them and it is good for our business. Accordingly, we were very proud to see the results from our annual cultural survey, which highlighted that Salmat employees believe that people from diverse backgrounds are able to prosper with us.

A number of significant initiatives were launched during the year. In particular, the Leadership Academy and the Women in Leadership Council, sponsored by our CEO Grant Harrod, are providing clear development and progression plans for our current and future leaders. The health and wellbeing of our people is also a top priority and we are pleased to report that our lost time injury frequency rate (LTIFR) has fallen for the fifth consecutive year, recording a 33.3% reduction against the previous year.

The Salmat Activate program supports a range of charities that are selected annually by a staff committee. This year there was a strong focus on child welfare, both in Australia and overseas, and donations totalling $161,863 were made during 2012.

We believe in recycling as much as possible. We recycle all paper based products that we are able to, and we have instigated a program to educate our clients about environmentally preferable paper based choices.
