Our Cleanaway Way

      1. Cleanaway values
        We are a values-driven organisation and actively seek people who share our values and aspire to deliver results through living our values day in day out. At every level our people make a difference to our success whether they are at entry level, in a hands-on role or are people managers.
      1. Leadership model
        For us to be a great team, achieving great things, we need to work together, focused on the same goals. Teamwork is always stronger when we have clarity and when everyone knows what their job is and what is expected of them. Our Cleanaway Leadership Model is a guide that suggests specific leadership behaviours for specific environments. The Model is a framework designed to provide unambiguous performance expectations from incumbents and future leaders to fully align with our enterprise objectives and is used a recruitment tool when seeking leaders for our business.
      1. Diversity andInclusionPolicy
        We are proud of our diverse workforce, and embrace the strength and innovative thinking that comes from teams with diverse values, backgrounds, skills, experiences and aspirations. Whether our people are on the road, on site, or in the office, they are all part of delivering Cleanaway’s mission, to make a sustainable future possible.We value diversity and inclusionand recognise the benefits that it brings to our company, customers and other key stakeholders.
        Our Diversity and Inclusion Policy and the supporting processes are aimed at creating a culture where our employees understand that each individual is unique and that managing diversity makes us more flexible, productive, creative and competitive.
        Our commitment to diversity and inclusion extends to all areas of our business, including recruitment, selection and appointment to roles, training and development, remuneration and reward, retention of employees, forms of leave and flexible working arrangements, succession planning and company policies and procedures.
      1. Aboriginal engagement
        One of the ways we’re delivering on our mission to make a sustainable future possible is committing to closing the gap for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Cleanaway endorses the vision of a nation which values Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, cultures and peoples and recognises their unique position as the original custodians of Australia.
    1. Reconciliation journey
      For Cleanaway, reconciliation is about creating a level playing field for all employees while working with communities in a way that enables economic independence, whilst caring for country. We have built the foundations by educating our staff about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and heritage as a proud part of a shared national identity. We know that diversity makes us stronger as a business and we’ll continue to nurture a more culturally diverse community of employees, partners, customers and suppliers. Having completed our introduction to reconciliation through our ‘Reflect’Reconciliation ActionPlan (RAP) (2017-2018)we’re proud to now begin the next step in our journey with our ‘Innovate’ RAP (2018-2020).It is a vital contribution toward building a stronger Australian community – and an important part of our commitment to making a sustainable future possible.
