Feel supported at Lifeblood
There’s no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to career development, so we make sure we have a range of flexible, self-paced tools and opportunities.
When you start working with us, your manager will talk to you about any job-specific training you require, whether it’s technical, safety, quality, compliance training or something else that gives you a leg up. They’ll be there to guide you through it, or put the wheels in motion to organise it. Learning tools include:
- online training
- on-the-job development
- collaborative learning opportunities
- leadership development programs
- external courses and seminars
- internal training
- workplace skills coaching.
Performance feedback and development
No matter what department, location or level of expertise, we want to ensure all our employees have the opportunity to innovate, learn new skills and embrace new challenges.
Our performance development framework helps you plan for the year ahead and seek regular feedback from your manager. At Lifeblood, your performance will be rated not just on what you achieved, but how you achieved it.
Make the most of your salary by paying for certain approved things before paying taxes.
From mortgages to dining out, car leasing to accommodation, there are plenty of expenses that can be included in salary packaging. And, by packaging up to $15,900 of your income, you can pay less tax!
We partner with Maxxia, so it’s best to get in touch with them to find out exactly what you can package and how much tax you can save. Of course, we offer this service in line with government legislation. If the legislation changes, we may have to change our policies too.
Call Maxxia on 1300 123 123.
