What you do matters

You matter to our residents, our clients, their families and loved ones, our community, your colleagues and you matter to Benetas.

 

Why what you do matters.

We recognise that our employees across the business have been feeling the pressure that has come from COVID-19. Particularly given most of us are in close regular contact with people who are most vulnerable.

We have had to change the way we do things, adapt to new arrangements and processes, all while continuing to care for and support our residents, clients and the community.

It is at times like these that we need to acknowledge why we do what we do and that WHAT WE DO MATTERS, what YOU do matters.

This has led us to launching a new campaign titled WHAT YOU DO MATTERS. The campaign aims to connect with you and reiterate that the day to day tasks, small gestures, conversations and interactions, all MATTER. YOU MATTER. You matter to our residents, you matter to our clients, you matter to our community, you matter to their families and loved ones, you matter to your colleagues and you matter to Benetas.

The WHAT YOU DO MATTERS campaign will highlight eleven employees across Benetas over the coming months. It will give a snippet of their contribution and remind us all of the incredible impact we are all making to the lives of Victorians. You can read our first story for the campaign below.

We can’t wait to share your colleagues’ stories and raise awareness of the important contribution each and every one of you make. You can follow the campaign on bconnect, across social media and our website, and we will provide regular updates in Broadcaster. You may also start to see the imagery being used in advertising for careers at Benetas.

We know you are passionate and we value the work that you do, day in and day out. WHAT YOU DO MATTERS and YOU MATTER TO US.

Thank you for WHAT YOU DO.
