“I have participated in this partnership program with Woolworths and Community Corporate from the beginning and it continues to provide me with hardworking, reliable and loyal team members. It is really important for us as store managers to get behind the program and provide a vital employment pathway for refugees who otherwise wouldn’t be working. They truly are an asset and welcome addition to the Metro team.”

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
As Australian consumer’s purchasing trends continue to evolve, more and more we see people look beyond a company’s product or service quality or price alone. They want to know about your corporate culture, what you value and ultimately, they want to know what a purchase from you says about them.
Beyond consumer directed influence, companies are embracing the impact of strong corporate social responsibility as a competitive advantage. Being branded as a good Corporate Citizen positively impacts on attracting the right people into your workforce and elevates your company’s value proposition.
