In today's job market, employers are increasingly integrating additional benefits and lifestyle incentives for their staff, reflecting a market trend geared towards investing in long-term commitments and nurturing staff.  At Bennett + Bennett, we recognise that our success is deeply intertwined with the success of our team members. That's why we've made it a priority to foster internal career pathways and progression opportunities within our organisation.

Over the past year, we've been thrilled to see 25% of our staff members achieve internal promotions. This statistic isn't just a number to us; it represents the tangible results of our commitment to recognising and rewarding hard work and dedication. Whether it's advancing to a higher position or taking on new responsibilities, we celebrate the milestones of our team members as they progress in their careers with us.

Our dedication to internal progression goes beyond simply promoting from within. We understand the importance of investing in the future of our industry by nurturing young talent. That's why we've implemented a Graduate Program specifically tailored to recent surveying graduates. This program provides a structured pathway for newcomers to the field, offering mentorship, training, and hands-on experience under the guidance of seasoned professionals within our company. By equipping the next generation with the tools they need to succeed, we're not only ensuring our own continued success but also contributing to the growth and innovation of the industry as a whole.

Diversity and inclusion are also core values that drive our approach to talent development. We firmly believe that a diverse workforce leads to greater innovation and creativity. That's why we were excited launch our Women in Surveying Scholarship for 2024, in partnership with UniSQ . This initiative aims to break down traditional barriers and empower women pursuing careers in surveying by providing financial assistance as they pursue their career in surveying. By promoting diversity within our industry, we're not only creating more opportunities for individuals but also enriching the perspectives and experiences that drive innovation in our field.

However, career pathways don't just start from the bottom up. We also offer our leaders new skills and opportunities through our Leadership and Associate Programs,  allowing them to reach their full potential and cultivating leadership skills at all levels of our organisation. These programs provide tailored training, mentorship, and networking opportunities, enabling participants to develop the capabilities necessary to lead teams and drive organisational success.

Ultimately, our commitment to internal career pathways and progression isn't just about advancing individual careers; it's about creating a culture where every team member feels valued, empowered, and inspired to reach new heights. By investing in our employees, promoting diversity and inclusion, and cultivating leadership at all levels, we're not only shaping the future of our company but also making a meaningful impact on the surveying profession as a whole.
