BUSINESS FOR GOOD

Some people look at businesses as money grabbing faceless organisations which sole goal is to make profit, happy to fire people at will and constantly breaking the law but actually business can and are used for good.

Not only do they solve a problem for the economy in the first instance, take people off government welfare and increase their standard of living but they can also do good for the world at large.

1. HELPING COMPANIES STAY IN BUSINESS

~3000 Construction Companies go out of business every year in Australia and this figure is likely to be much higher in the years to come when the impact of COVID is actually felt.

The primary reason for this is the Contractual Hierarchy. The Principal (Government’s, Developers, Oil & Gas Companies etc) Contract to a Tier 1 Contractor. There will be lawyers on both sides of this agreement and risks are known. 
 
The Tier 1 Contractor will then Subcontract most if not all of this work out to Tier 2’s (scaffolders, civil companies etc). These Contracts will be more hostile than the one they signed with the Principal (to cover themselves). 
 
Unfortunately, the Tier 2’s don’t have and can’t afford the expertise which results in them signing contracts with out fully understanding the risks. 
 
Cian’s company, Quantum Contract Solutions provides an innovative solution to provide this expertise for a fraction of the cost helping 100’s of construction companies stay in business.

2. DIGITAL BUSINESSES

Working remotely with flexible working hours is the way of the future and Western Australia is getting left behind.

These types of business open up a new talent pool of resources, creating happier employees and provides opportunities for a better life for people in remote areas.

Every time Cian’s company completes a “Contract Review” for its clients, it purchases 1 day of digital training for Aboriginal communities (See Below).

As part of its Operations meetings on a weekly basis, the team talks about “how many days of training we have contributed to” rather than just numbers. We find that it gives everyone a sense that what they are doing is making a real difference in the world.

3. A BETTER SOLUTION FOR GENDER EQUALITY

Cian’s company is 80% female. There was no quota, no initiative – Just a better solution. Being a fully digital company with flexi-working hours meant that the BEST people turned out to be Women. Full stop, end of story.

Cian also implemented a policy of “equal mandatory child leave” for men and women meaning there is no archaic “you need to factor in maternity leave when hiring a woman” nonsense. It’s a fair playing field now and only the best people get the job regardless of gender.

Every time Cian’s company produces a Variation or Extension of Time for its clients, it purchases 1 day of Leadership Training for Emerging Female Leaders in SEA (See Below).
