The company is backed by a locally based team with its world-class online platform making the delivery of its services seamless across the globe. Besides, CVCheck is led by a highly motivated management team of experienced and accomplished professionals that have a wealth of experience and in-depth knowledge about all business domains. The team has positively anchored and scaled significant projects on both national and international front.

Committed to Employee Health and Well-Being

One of the key organisational goals of CVCheck has been ensuring the welfare of employees, of which nearly 50% are women who also constitute a major portion of the workforce at CVCheck’s extensive network of clients, stakeholders and partners in the Australian and New Zealand recruitment, talent acquisition and HR industries.

From 2nd to 6th September 2019, the company celebrated Women’s Health Week in Melbourne, an initiative of the Jean Hailes Foundation, a national NGO, dedicated to providing world-class health services to women, encouraging them to improve their health and wellbeing at various stages of life.

How women at CVCheck look after their health? Many of them walk, run outdoors, meditate, dance and also play golf which is great for both the mind and body.

How CVCheck leads by example? CVCheck’s management is of the view that a company cannot be productive without its employees enjoying a healthy work-life balance. For example, CVCheck’s CEO, Rod Sherwood likes to spend many of his weekends in the South West, exploring the spectacular forests, surfing and riding skateboard.

Likewise, CVCheck’s CCO, Andrew Maffett loves the water and spends his weekends sailing and kayaking in the natural environment. In addition to physical wellbeing, CVCheck considers mental health equally important.

CVCheck’s Marketing specialist, Jenny Shaw keeps herself fit by participating in marathon, biking and jogging to work. Moreover, she also likes to keep her mind fit too.

Women Mentoring Women

According to a research from the Peterson Institute, more women in the C-suite is directly proportional to increased profitability for the company and also having at least 30% women in leadership roles can boost net profit margin by 6%. Another study by Bain & Company suggested that commitment to gender equality aids employee engagement and higher corporate growth rates. It is essential to have female leaders in the company, more so since only around 6.4% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women and less than 1/4th of senior management roles are held by women globally. Also, women mentoring women is a critical step towards maintaining gender diversity and equality in the workplace.

Female-to-female mentorships help women advance in their careers and instils confidence. It is also a great way of putting things in a different perspective as everyone needs someone to bounce ideas off. Women mentoring other women in business also creates more growth opportunities in general, and helps women get through different career cycles.

Following are some key features of CVCheck, as a business, promoting good health and providing an inclusive environment that’s suitable for all employees:

  • Healthy environment

CVCheck’s headquarters are located in the Garden Office Park in Perth, amidst lush green surroundings, where the staff has access to a free on-site gym, tennis court and pool. The staff can enjoy a leisurely walk or get some sun.

  • Flexible working

The company’s management supports individuals’ working requirements and allows the staff to work remotely or from home when needed, although most of the roles at CVCheck are office-based.

  • Supportive management

CVCheck managers encourage feedback and allow the employees to put forth their opinions that make the company more efficient for everyone. The company also promotes an individual’s mental wellbeing and endeavour to be understanding of their personal life circumstances.

The company’s Client Services and Operations regularly organise bowling nights, and the Marketing department even organised VR games. Several annual events are also hosted by CVCheck, like the Christmas party, promoting the team opportunities to get together and socialise.
