EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION PROGRAM

EMC Group appreciates the efforts of its employees to achieve corporate goals and to fulfil our core values. Outstanding employees deserve to be recognised both as a reward for exceptional performance and as a model to other employees.

The Employee-of-the-Month Program recognises one employee each month. Nominations are based on excellent job performance, promoting a pleasant working environment, dependability and/or innovation.

Each month, an employee is chosen for their outstanding service to the business or to our customers. All nominees for the employee of the month, regardless of a win or not, are entered into the employee of the year nominations.

EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (EAP)

The Employee Assistance Program is a free and confidential counselling service provided by EMC Group to their employees to support their wellbeing in the workplace and in their personal lives.

The EAP service provided will be paid for by EMC Group and includes up to three counselling sessions per issue.

Our EAP provider, Converge International, is for our staff to access confidential counselling, coaching and support for workplace and personal issues. The program is designed to assist our staff in meeting the challenges and demands of their work and personal life.  Sometimes we are confronted with issues that test our ability to cope and our EAP provides short-term, solutions-oriented counselling and coaching.
