2022 has been another prosperous year for the Glad Group and the Glad Family. Through the power of us, we have recognised our people by organising engaging events and honouring their achievements and accelerated our environmental, social and governance initiatives. We have also taken everyone on a systems transformation journey, with a new finance system allowing us to report in real-time.
In 2022, over24 new assets joined the Glad Family across Australia and New Zealand, with our customers and their communities embracing the Glad way. This is an exciting new milestone for the Glad Group of companies, as these contracts range from commercial, retail, government, and construction sectors, opening new opportunities and prospects shaping the Glad future.
Exceptional Corporate Citizens
In 2022, we delivered our second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan, endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, and our third Modern Slavery Statement, outlining our commitment to being ‘A Force for Good’. We have also set our carbon neutral targets, received a Bronze Medal from EcoVadis and complied with the Workplace Gender Equality Association (WGEA) targets.
In 2022, we implemented new online systems, including WIISE, our new finance system, and Expense Manager for an easy way to track our expenditures. We’ve also redefined GladConnect and its reporting capabilities and have integrated our time and attendance system to the rest of our network. These systems allow us to be more transparent, to provide real-time reports and reinforce our paperless approach.
Connections and Recognition Moments
In 2022, we introduced more regular communication with our people, hosting over 15 events, showing our appreciation for our teams’ hard work and dedication. We also issued over 130 certificates of appreciation to staff who went above and beyond, and over 170 staff members were celebrated for achieving length of service milestones of 5, 10, 15 or 20 years!
Congratulations to our teams for making Glad a great place to work and thank you to our customers for their trust over the years.
