People and values

An excerpt from the letter from Aeris Resources Executive Chairman, Andre Labuschagne contained in the 2019 Annual report:

Some time ago we decided on the kind of company Aeris should be. We wanted to maintain a lean team without multiple levels of hierarchy. We wanted people to be well trained, well-educated and empowered to make decisions without constant micro-management. We also wanted to continue to strengthen our teams with people who not only understand our values, but who live them.

Our commitment to our values and our community is what makes Aeris different from other companies. The vast majority of our workforce at Tritton reside locally, meaning they go home every night to their families and are able to contribute to the community through their involvement in sport, recreation and charities. Being located in a rural area means we have access to a willing pool of workers from nearby properties who are keen to diversify their sources of income. This is particularly helpful for some of these people during difficult periods on the land, like during the current drought. In return, we have found this section of our workforce positively contributes to not only the group work ethic but also adds diversity to the social fabric that defines the culture of Tritton.

Across our business our people have continued their commitment to success and worked incredibly hard during the year to deliver targets. I would like to thank each and every Aeris employee and contractor for their contribution to our outstanding performance in FY2019.
