We’ve joined forces with leading employee management services organisation, Smartgroup, to further enhance its comprehensive offering for working parents.
Circle In is delighted to announce that we’re teaming up with Smartgroup to help its employees successfully navigate the worlds of work and parenthood.
Smartgroup is an award-winning, ASX-listed company, trusted by some of Australia’s largest and most highly regulated organisations to provide salary packaging, novated leasing, fleet management and other remuneration services.
Circle In will provide Smartgroup team members with access to our industry-leading portal, supporting them every step of the way on their parenting journey.
“We’re constantly asking ourselves – ‘how can we go Beyond Further for our people?’ We’ve transformed our Parental Leave Policy into one which is recognised as industry leading, not only in terms of generous leave entitlements and return to work bonus, but also by being so flexible and gender neutral,” says Justine Carmichael, Smartgroup’s CHRO.
Smartgroup already offers an outstanding parental leave benefit, with employees entitled to 20 weeks’ paid primary carers leave and 6 weeks’ paid secondary carers leave, as well as a $3,000 return-to-work bonus. The organisation also joins some of Australia’s most forward-thinking employers by paying superannuation contributions on paid leave and unpaid parental leave for up to 12 months.
“Today’s leading organisations understand that supporting working parents is a great business move— as well as being the right thing to do,” says Circle In co-founder Jodi Geddes.
“Smartgroup recognises that its competitive edge is underpinned by its people. The Circle In platform, in conjunction with Smartgroup’s exceptional forward-thinking policies, will serve to engage and enrich its workforce further.”
We commend Smartgroup for its work on enhancing diversity and driving meaningful change in the workplace.
