Why don’t all businesses operate like this?

Why don’t all businesses operate like this?

Posted on Dec 10, 2018

We'd like to make a prediction.

We want to say publicly that a technology company called FluroSat is going to be huge. Having seen how they operate over the past few weeks, I’m more sure than ever that businesses like this are setting the standard for Australian workplaces of the future.

Let us explain.

One of the WORK180 team members reached out to FluroSat's CEO and Founder Anastasia Volkova a few months ago, but she was super busy and said she would get back to us towards the end of the year.

But then Anastasia met our Co-Founder and CEO Gemma at a KPMG event. She immediately called and said,_ “I totally get it. What do I need to change to create a more welcoming workplace for women?”_

We sent over a copy of WORK180’s HR policies to use as a reference and within three business days, Anastasia had implemented every single one. 

Gender-neutral language, equal leave allowance for primary and secondary carers, zero minimum tenure required to be eligible for paid parental leave, superannuation contributions on paid parental leave, a $2k super bonus upon return to work from unpaid parental leave and a clause to ensure parents of stillborn children were not excluded. 

It made us so proud of the work they’ve done and we want to celebrate it.

It also made us think about how appealing their company and attitude is. We're pretty sure that’s how you build a great business.
