Make the most of your pre-tax earnings
Currently every Calvary full and part time employee can reduce their taxable income by taking up salary packaging.
As a Not-For-Profit organisation, the Australian Tax Office allows Calvary employees to pay for certain living expenses with pre-tax dollars.
You could salary package your mortgage, rent, personal loans, or general expenses such as bills and groceries. This reduces the overall amount of tax payable on your gross salary and increases the amount of disposable income you have to spend each pay.
Caring for your own well-being as you care for others
“The aim of the Calvary Health Body & Mind Dashboard portal is to encourage employees to give the same amount of attention to their wellbeing as they would to their patients, residents or clients.” – Heidi McCowan, Head of Workplace Health, Safety and Enterprise Risk.
The portal provides videos, podcasts, live webinars, activities like 30 day exercise challenges, recipes and more.
Keeping you and your family fit for less
Calvary partners with ‘Fitness Passport’ to provide employees access to a range of gyms, swimming pools and fitness centres at a discounted rate that could be as much as 73% off the membership price for families and 50% off for singles.
Support when you need it
Calvary has fully subsidised the Employee Assistance Program to provide employees and their immediate family with access to a minimum of three free sessions. This confidential service is run by a number of highly professional, friendly and caring psychologists and social workers.
This service can be used to address issues of a work or personal nature that may be impacting on your health and wellbeing, including:
