'Keeping it Fresh' - recognition for Sanford

26 Nov 2018

Sanford has taken the MinterEllisonRuddWatts Excellence in Governance award in 2018, in recognition of the company's strong focus on being a good corporate citizen, with broader considerations beyond its commercial activity.

Sanford embarked on a significant culture change a few years ago.

As part of this, Sanford has placed a strong emphasis on offering meaningful opportunities for continual learning and development, setting a goal to maximise the prospects of all its people.

In line with this, Sanford introduced its 'Keeping it Fresh' numeracy and literacy initiative three years ago, a programme that puts participants together into groups of around eight people for a 10-week course which takes them out of their regular roles for four hours a week. Participants are given a group project to work on, and many have produced a result that has helped them and the business. Read the full story here.
