We host a range of social and knowledge sharing events such as:
- First Fridays - the first friday of each month employees share knowledge and insights on their latest projects and market insights.
- V:Lunch - a regular fortnightly Velrada business and people update.
- Friday drinks - casual get-together where everyone gets a chance to digest the week and catch up on news.
We hold formal social occasions including Director dinners hosted by our executive directors and senior team, an annual off-site Winter Retreat with team building activities, an annual Family Day BBQ where staff are invited to bring their families, and an end-of-year celebration for staff and partners. Combine this with the regular client and networking functions and it's a busy calendar for those that want to get amongst it!
Velrada also supports keeping our employees fit and healthy through subsidised entry fees and merchandise for sporting events such as the City to Surf and the BRW Triathlon.
Velrada is a major supporter of charity, Classroom of Hope. The charity supports children in Cambodia, building schools and improving access to education. It costs $20,000 to build one child-friendly school in Cambodia, to be attended by up to 500 children, thereby transforming the lives of a community. Each school is inclusive and gender-sensitive, providing school-based health and nutrition services, and access to clean drinking water and suitable sanitation facilities. Velrada have been working together to raise enough funds to build one school, through a number of fundraising initiatives.
We encourage our team to get out there in the community and volunteer, with Velrada doing as much as they can to support worthy causes and help to raise money for those in need.
