The whole Whizdom team care about the well-being of our contractors. Together, we make a point of checking-in; catching up in a relaxed environment; seeing how the engagement is going; assisting with work-life balance; and looking for early indicators of stress contributors.
Social networking events such as the famous ‘Whizdom Pizza in the Park’ Barefoot Bowls, Lunch, Brunch, and Morning Tea events, give our contractors the opportunity to become part of the Whizdom Contractor community. We get together in a social setting and build on the Whizdom team spirit – adhering to COVID safe rules of course!
End of Contract Feedback opportunities
