As a consulting and digital services firm, our purpose is to help our customers to deliver amazing experiences for their customers and exceptional performance for their stakeholders. Our team is a critical element of any engagement delivery. Our team are aligned and committed to a set of values that informs our decision making, our ways of working and describes our culture. It also provides an insight into working with us.
Our people contribute strongly to our continuous improvement agenda. We constantly seek new ways to innovate and improve our ways of working our knowledge and expertise. This is what helps us attract and retain the talented team we’ve assembled.
We are team first
We are trying, very hard in fact, to create a culture that nurtures and encourages innovation and initiative, and has some fun along the way. This can only occur where our team feels engaged, valued, and confident. Our consulting team has been organised to ensure a supportive, collaborative consultant experience.
On commencements with Exco Partners, each new consultant is provided with a clear position description and reporting line – We ensure everyone knows their fellow team members and their direct line manager.
While on a client site, a consultant is also supported by a site lead accountable for our delivery within the client account. This ensures everyone has a sense of place and feels supported by the team regardless of the client engagement. We promote regular team interaction – We constantly support working groups and communities of interest to facilitate knowledge sharing and learning across the team. We’ve found this a great way to refine our delivery methods, create new relationships amongst the team, and promote collaboration.
We are proud
We have been very fortunate to have been recognised for some of our work through industry awards however it has been our contribution to the community and the organisations who are dedicated to supporting the community that make us the most proud.
We have been lucky to work with the National Centre for Farner Health which is delivering long-term and positive impacts to the safety, health and wellbeing of regional communities throughout Australia.
We have worked closely with Sustainability Victoria on their world-leading sustainable school program ResourceSmart Schools. ResourceSmart Schools helps school communities benefit from embedding sustainability into everything they do and is well placed to help Victorians take action on climate change.
We have been working with BeyondBlue who provide an incredible service to support and educate Australians in their challenges with mental health.
We have supported LifeBlood to help them to continue to make their most significant contributions in their life-saving role within our community.
This is what we love doing the most.
We have a social conscience.
We have embraced social procurement principles and incorporated social outcomes into our ways of working. We do this because we want to. We do this because it is the right thing to do.
We have formally incorporated family violence leave under our employment conditions. Our employment contracts align with the National Employment Standards (NES) but now formally recognise this provision of additional leave.
We have identified and acknowledge the gender gap within our industry and have developed internal targets to address the gender split of our team. We include this reporting to our team during our company updates and have formally included this in our board.
We have further bought into the Victorian Government’s social procurement objectives and have specifically targeted our own supply chain. We have categorised our annual spend and identified a number of expense categories that have social enterprise supply options. We have implemented the “+1” strategy to ensure we request a quotation from a social enterprise for these expensive items. We are mindful of the social trader and Kinaway supplier lists and continue to refine the list of suppliers in our supply chain to maximise this social benefit.
