One of the core values of 16 is elevating human potential. We strongly believe this is important not only for our clients and candidates but it is just as important for our staff.
We regularly have huge amounts of fun with our monthly social events (the last one being a crazy golf day) and we are currently working through an in-depth Learning and Development program with each member of staff. All our staff go through the Best Self Identity program and we endeavor each day to reach our next “best self” to grow and improve individually and as a team. This month we have launched two initiatives for our staff that we are very proud of; an Employee Assistance Program and Reo Day!
Reo days – Giving back two free days per quarter
We are proud to launch Reo Days for our staff starting from 1 January 2018. In Reo days we seek to recognise the additional effort performed by our people in supporting the business and helping Reo reach its strategic objectives. With Reo days we want to give back to our staff with wellbeing days off, these will be one or two days of paid leave per quarter which are in addition to their other leave entitlements. That’s an extra 8 days of paid leave per year for our people, 8 more kit-kat days to enjoy! Here is what some of our staff have to say about Reo Days:

We are very excited to see Reo Days in action and are proud to lead the way for other businesses in this, being aware that it is not common practice for businesses to offer this type of initiative to staff.
Reo Employee Assistance Program – Sometimes you just need to be pointed in the right Direction.
Following on from Reo Days, with our high performing team constantly giving of their energy to our candidate and clients, we recognise that they can often forget to take a step back and look after themselves, working long hours and more often than not on weekends. With this in mind, we have engaged PeopleSense to provide a professional and confidential counseling service to our staff members. PeopleSense employs experienced and qualified psychologist with a “human” style. Their approach is friendly, caring, and focused on practical solutions. The service is free to our staff members and offers counseling in areas such as –
- Depression, anxiety, stress;
- Family or relationship problems;
- Children and adolescents mental health;
- Work-related problems (e.g. bullying, conflict, redundancy);
- Alcohol or other substance use problems
- Grieg and loss;
- Trauma; and
- Other personal or work issues
With this program we also want to demystify “mental illness” and remove labels that are often associated with it; we understand that sometimes we all just need to be pointed in the right direction.
