CJC Management’s third Quarterly Strategy Workshop of 2023

Fostering a collaborative environment, the team came together at our Sydney head office for the third Quarterly Strategy Workshop of 2023. This event holds significant importance on CJC Management’s calendar, offering a platform for collective brainstorming and innovation. It’s also a valuable opportunity for team members from different offices across the country to come together and share insights.

The day began with a Welcome to Country and a warm welcome to our new team members. The morning workshops focused on solidifying the business strategy and defining our 90-day goals. We also engaged in lengthy discussions about upcoming opportunities and strategies for global business growth. Our objective was to ensure the team was set up to success with the relevant knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in their roles.

One of the highlights of the day was an insightful presentation from Michael Kilgariff, former CEO of Roads Australia and Managing Director of the Australian Logistics Council. He provided valuable insights into the upcoming changes in the infrastructure sector, emphasising industry shifts and policy refinements. These insights served as a solid foundation for our collaborative discussions.

As part of our ongoing commitment to employee well-being, we introduced Foremind, our new Employee Assistance Program (EAP). This program is a valuable resource designed to support our team’s mental health both in and out of the workplace.

To add a dynamic touch to the afternoon, we facilitated a Mentor’s Walk, a popular activity that allowed for a mutual exchange of experiences and advice, ultimately strengthening our team’s relationships. After the Mentor Walk, we came back all together to our head office in North Sydney. Reflecting on the past three months, our Managing Director, Michael Eager, presented the company wins, project updates and KPI’s from the past quarter and the company goals for the upcoming one.

As part of our Employee Appreciation Program, we had a special moment to celebrate the team member who joined our 5-year Club. Our success story wouldn’t be complete without the unwavering loyalty of our team. These outstanding professionals have shown dedication for half a decade, and we are proud to applaud their achievements. The day concluded with a team dinner, marking the end of a productive and rewarding event. We extend our gratitude to everyone for delivering exceptional services to our clients and for their achievements this quarter.

With this framework in place, we eagerly anticipate what the next quarter will bring!

CJC Management’s Group Managing Director Out In The Cold

Get behind our Group Managing Director Colin Calder who is braving the cold to experience homelessness for the CEO Sleepout in Sydney on 20 June 2019.

Every night, thousands of Australians experience homelessness. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This year our Group Managing Director is taking part in the Vinnies CEO Sleepout to raise money for the St Vincent de Paul Society to support Australians in need. For one night, he’ll be sleeping outside as part of an eye-opening experience to raise awareness and bring home the realities of homelessness. One would think, hailing from Scotland he won’t have too many issues with the cold, but Colin has been in Australia for over ten years and become accustomed to our beautiful Sydney weather and the luxuries of ducted heating.

To help Colin and the St Vincent de Paul Society break the devastating cycle of homelessness, Colin needs your support for the CEO Sleepout. Donating 55 dollars will feed a family for a day and make a huge difference to people who need it most. Every donation made in the next 48 hours will be matched by Vinnie’s Sleepout sponsors so click this link now and help reduce homelessness in Australia. Your support is very much appreciated by Colin, the St Vincent de Paul Society and people who are homeless in Australia.
