Helping to establish a $35 million endowment fund for the WA Museum is the latest step in Jenny Allen’s philanthropic journey.
The distinctive benefits from corporate giving are clear for companies and employees alike and Macmahon is investing in initiatives that add tangible value not only to our employees, but also to families and the communities in which we operate.
Macmahon’s safety culture includes a focus on keeping our people mentally and physically healthy.
As a part of this we support a number of charities that encourage physical activity, resulting in benefits to the health and wellbeing of our team.
We encourage fundraising efforts to support our chosen charities and are repeatedly overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of our people to get involved.
Increasing our investment in corporate giving is bringing our people closer together, resulting in an increase in staff morale which naturally has positive effects on their mental wellbeing.
Our team is proud of who they work for and our commitment to charitable causes such as The Perkins Institute for Medical Research, with which, we have raised more than $350,000 in the past three years.
“The strong relationship the Perkins has nurtured with Macmahon over the past few years is one based on collaboration and growth,” said Professor Peter Leedman, Director of the Perkins. “Macmahon has transformed its culture to be one based on wellbeing and support of local community initiatives. This aligns beautifully with our own aims at the Perkins. I ride with Macmahon’s staff as part of our annual ride and I know that this company is committed to not just talking the talk – they’re also riding the ride. And we are so grateful for their support of WA cancer research.”
As a business operating in remote mining communities, it’s also important to us to support local groups. We see great benefit in sponsoring grassroots sporting clubs to ensure future generations experience the close-knit team culture that local sporting teams create.
It is evident that corporate charitable giving increases employee engagement and overall employee satisfaction. In a market that demands a higher value proposition to attract and retain quality employees, Macmahon is committed to further developing our corporate giving program to align with our company values.
