The FY11 financial year was a period of significant change for BAC with the implementation of a new Senior Management Team, a new corporate organisational structure and the development of a new vision and purpose statement, all of which is designed to improve the commercial focus and performance of the company.
Notable outcomes during the year include
The appointment of six new General Managers to the Senior Management Team and, in turn, the development of new group structures and reporting lines;
The recruitment of 63 new employees, bringing BAC's total workforce numbers to 232 across a range of professional, technical, operational and administrative areas;
The development of, and commitment to, four new company values, to help guide the way BAC operates. These values include: building collaborative relationships; being proactive and innovative; acting with integrity and commitment; and providing service excellence;
The creation of a management incentive scheme, as well as the introduction of a range of options for flexible work;
Partnering with beyondblue, a national, not-for-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related disorders in Australia. Through this partnership BAC is committed to delivering awareness and training seminars for all workers and management on recognising, and appropriately handling, situations where individuals may not be coping;
Successfully obtaining Australian Standards accreditation (AS 4801) of BAC's occupational health and safety management system;
Continuing annual focus weeks for safety, health and wellbeing;
Implementing a new, Board-supported, Workplace Diversity Policy; and
Re-introducing 'casual Fridays', with an added fundraising emphasis supporting a number of charities.
All these initiatives contribute to BAC's key organisational priority of fostering a diverse, safe and balanced environment for all workers.
