2013 Annual Report

Our success is built on our partnerships with the professional clinicians who support our leadership teams and our staff who provide expert care, diagnosis and support for thousands of people every day.

We recognise the important role they play in helping us achieve our goals and investment in our people is one of our strategic pillars. We strive to create world class working environments that attract talented people, provide competitive and rewarding remuneration and foster cultures that celebrate and encourage success.

Recruitment and retention is a key priority and each of our businesses is encouraged to create and uphold its own unique culture, where employees are respected and valued. An important part of developing these cultures is providing opportunities for employees across our businesses to come together to share knowledge, take advantage of development opportunities and build collegiality. These include company-wide conferences, leadership retreats, team building exercises, clinical seminars and management courses.

I would like to thank all our people in Abano businesses across New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia for their contribution towards our success.
