Northern NSW : Rescue Autumn 2017
Workplace Giving Leading by example Marketing Manager Sandy Thomas says the great take-up reflects the company’s positive and supportive culture. ‘Without community funding, life-saving services like the Rescue Helicopter cannot survive. The Workplace Giving program is such an easy way to provide support - no one misses $2 a week from their pay.’ (L-R) GLOBAL PRODUCTS MANAGER MARK GREAM AND GENERAL ADMINISTRATION OFFICER JENNIE RILEY SIGNING UP FOR THE $2 CHALLENGE. A world front runner in designing and manufacturing mining equipment, Hedweld, is hoping other companies will follow its lead and join the Rescue Helicopter’s Workplace Giving program. During a recent staff information day,16 employees signed up to the Service’s $2 Challenge where a regular tax-deductible donation will be contributed through their weekly pay. With the company currently exporting to 32 countries including South Africa, Asia Pacific and the USA, Hedweld’s range of technologically advanced, innovative products are specifically designed to improve safety and efficiency in the mining industry. Electrician Patrick Greenwood says, it’s good to know the Rescue Helicopter is on call. ‘I joined the Workplace Giving program because it is a worthwhile cause and you never know when they could save your life or the lives of your family or friends,” Mr Greenwood said. How to get involved Signing up to the Rescue Helicopter Workplace Giving program means that each time you’re paid by your employer a nominated amount is automatically made as a tax-deductible donation to the Service. To get involved in this program the first step is to contact a Community Liaison Officer (CLO) in your region. 01/ Your CLO will come out and speak with your employees about the program. 02 / An employee signs up to the program by completing a simple form and nominating the regular payroll deduction amount. 03 / The form goes to the payroll department where the nominated amount is deducted from the employee’s weekly, monthly or fortnightly pay. 04 / At the end of the financial year, employees are able to claim a tax deduction for the total amount donated. Did you know that donating just a few dollars from your pay each week ensures that no one will ever pay to be assisted by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service? Workplace Giving Programs are an important and valued way that our community contributes. Well known and championed by our mates in mining and unions, payroll contributions of just a couple of dollars each week are made by people working in local councils, health, media, manufacturing, business services and small business, to name just a few.
