As a local, family-owned business, we proudly advocate for local employment, inclusion and diversity. As a result, we have developed three key strategies to support our Social Responsibility targets.
Our Community Partnership was established to break down employment barriers within our local community. Champ Group has a partnership with Central Queensland Indigenous Development (CQID) and Rylow Group, that allows us to engage the local community and support employment through training, development and mentoring programs.
The vision for this partnership was to ensure children and young people grow up safe and cared for in family, community and culture. Our joint partnership reflects the commitment to improve the lives of Indigenous people and their families within the communities in which we operate.
Champ Group are long-term sponsors of the Central Queensland Capras Intrust Super Cup team. As Major Sponsors since 2020, we use our role to support both the game and employment opportunities for players in the local region.
Our support also extends to community events including the Sorthare Suzuki Racing Team as Gold Sponsors of 2020 QPC Championship Suzuki Swift Sport RS416 season.
Champ are also engaged with local high schools to build employment skills, and open conversations and pathways to the manufacturing, mining and construction industries. We value the skills, education and talent that can support Australia’s future in these sectors and believe that presenting these careers and opportunities to high school students is an important avenue to harness the industry leaders of tomorrow.
Our Meaningful Work Program aims to empower our employees and clients to get behind charities, causes and events that are important to them. Our Meaningful Work Program has seen many events championed by team members including:
• Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea – supporting the Cancer Council’s life-saving research;
• R U OK? Day – inspiring and empowering everyone to connect meaningfully with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling;
• TradeMutt Workwear – joining the social movement to make the invisible issue of mental health impossible to ignore;
• Vinnies CEO Sleepout – supporting CEO’s of businesses we work with, in their goal to raise awareness of the growing issue of homelessness;
• White Ribbon – shining a light on men’s violence against women, with the target of a nation that respects women, in which every woman lives in safety, free from all forms of men’s abuse.
• RACQ Helicopter Rescue – As a Rescue 300 Member, Champ supports the critical work of the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service for emergency assistance in regional and remote Queensland.
