We've made a minor change to our address in the footer of our website. We loved the idea and will be changing it throughout the company correspondence.
You may not be aware, but Australia Post is in the process of updating its address formats to allow for the inclusion of traditional place names and is encouraging us to include them in our own addresses. This is part of the Gomeroi woman’s campaign to celebrate our First Nation's people, supported by Australia Post. You will find a map, or a link to one, where you can discover the traditional land that you live and work on. You can read more about it here.
JHC pledges to always work towards practising exceptional standards of inclusivity and acceptance within our company, not just to our LGBTIQA+ community. While it may be Pride Month, and we are absolutely supportive of the community, we extend the same sentiment to everyone that works with us now, in the future and to the wider community. This includes all team members, clients, contractors, suppliers, and members of the public. Always.
Our corporate policies will always reflect standards that include, support, and protect all members of our team. As we grow, we will ensure;
-Anti-discrimination and bullying policies protect all of our team members -All team members have a right to request considerations to their work conditions that are integral to their lives, culture, and abilities to support them in reaching their full potential -Parental, carers, other leave provisions, and flexible work conditions are available to and do not exclude any member of our team -Professional development is made available to all team members, and promotion opportunities are awarded strictly to the best qualified or experienced candidates -Pay rates and benefits are only based on awards, experience, and requirements of the role -Inclusivity, anti-discrimination, and anti-bullying training will be a priority of our on-boarding process -Inappropriate behaviour will be called out, not tolerated and dealt with immediately in line with zero-tolerance policies -Complaints will be heard and inappropriate behaviour will be dealt with immediately, with sensitivity, and within the bounds of legislation -Team members affected by inappropriate behaviour will be offered support and understanding
We all have people in our lives that identify with the LGBTIQA+ community, whether we know it or not. Happy Pride Month!
We're all human. Be kind always. Be respectful. No judgement. And...Love is love! ... See MoreSee Less
Once again, JHC has received a community grant from Ipswich City Council (ICC), enabling the company to diversify, grow and increase its resiliance during the downturn, caused by the pandemic.
JHC began designing environmental monitoring and software tools with Melbourne firm D2K Information in November 2019. Part of the cost of development of its first product AlgaeWatch™, was met by the community funding program. AlgaeWatch™ has now been released, has received some excellent feedback from clients trialing the system, and is available for demonstration.
AlgaeWatch assesses uploaded cyanobacterial and toxin analysis, and visual inspection data and calculates the alert level, based on the framework set out in the NHMRC Guidelines for Managing Risks in Recreational Water, saving valuable time and preventing inconsistent interpretation. But, the real power of the tool is the customisation of the output messaging, and secondary processing of the data that allows the overlay of a utility’s own risk management strategies. The system can have features added to fit a client’s needs; to allow alerts to be sent directly via email or SMS, and include annotations and checklists. Risk management information, procedures to follow, and status of completion are centralised.
Designing monitoring and procedural algorithms is a diversification strategy for the company, enabling JHC to continue to grow in the past 18 months. Programs such as the COVID-19 Ipswich Small Business Funding is a vital part of the sustain and recovery process and AlgaeWatch™ may not have been completed without it. As CEO of JHC, I am personally very grateful to the ICC for its ongoing support of small companies like mine through these difficult times.
If you would like a demonstration of AlgaeWatch™, please get in touch with us here. We’d be happy to give you a demonstration. ... See MoreSee Less
