What a great turn out we had yesterday at the SNP Security Annual Conference. The conference focused on three important themes – ‘Retain. Invest. Grow’ and saw SNP employees and partners join us from all over the country. It was a great opportunity to gain insight into the business and unveil our strategic plan for the next financial year.
At SNP, we are firm believers that diverse teams are operationally more efficient and our commitment to inclusion and diversity were hot topics at this year’s conference. Attendees enjoyed hearing more about the success of #ConnectedWomen, a program initiated by SNP to empower our female employees, as well as the announcement of our exciting new partnership with Corroboree Security Services Indigenous Corporation, training offered through SNP’s Learning Academy and our ‘Voice of the Customer’ program (VoC).
Attendees took part in group activities based on VoC, which focused on improving our customers’ experience with SNP. We asked employees to role play as ‘Managing Director for a day’ – where they were encouraged to think like an MD to better understand the decision process involved around our business and customers.
We were honoured to have Australian men’s wheelchair basketball representative Brett Stibners, speak at our national conference this week about the importance of safety, especially whilst driving. At the age of 21, Brett was driving between jobs while working as an electrical apprentice. He fell asleep at the wheel and suffered a severe accident, which resulted in his leg being amputated at the knee. Brett’s accident was at 11:00 am on a Tuesday morning, 30 minutes from his destination. He is now training for Rio, making it his third time at the Paralympic Games. We appreciate the time he took to speak with our team to reinforce SNP’s core value of safety.
We are the sum of our people, and the participation of our staff at this year’s conference was outstanding and demonstrates our strong internal culture. We would like to thank everyone who helped make our conference a success.
