Salary packaging for a stronger sector

Through salary packaging, we support not for profit organisations to offer more competitive salaries to staff. This helps employers to retain good people who would otherwise seek higher paid positions in different sectors. Salary packaging also supports staff attraction: prospective employees are more likely to accept a new role because salary packaging and its many benefits substantially improve the base remuneration on offer. The best part? It doesn’t cost the employer a cent.

You can see the pattern here: salary packaging is a powerful tool that improves both the quality and quantity of staff in our sector without placing additional financial burden on organisations.

A national economic impact

We provide salary packaging to sector employees from all over the country, servicing people in the major cities and the most remote communities in Australia.

The additional take-home pay accessed through salary packaging can make a huge difference for sector staff. Our customers enjoy greater financial freedom, and have more income to use on travel, leisure, dining out, and luxury purchases. Of course, this has flow on effects for local businesses and economies — especially those in rural areas.
