Cultural Diversity at Fred
By Pino Fratangelo, General Manager Human Resources
What’s it really like at Fred? What’s so great about Fred?
I get asked these questions a fair bit, and I find myself raving about many aspects of life here at Fred in response. But one quality in particular that stands out is the cultural diversity of our team, and the advantages that this brings on both a personal and professional level.
The team at Fred includes people from every corner of the world, with France, the Philippines, India, China, and Vietnam just a handful of the countries represented by our team. Every day, we benefit from being able to harness the diversity of thought, background, talent and experience that this brings to the way we solve problems and generate new ideas.
At Fred we have a strong, shared sense of what we are collectively trying to do – make medication management safer and more effective for all Australians. The diversity within the team makes our ability to meet this vision so much stronger… and more interesting! These benefits flow through to our customers (also a diverse mob) in terms of the quality of IT solutions and customer experience we provide.
But don’t take my word for it – below are thoughts and words from some of our team members, about what Fred is really like, and what it means to work as part of Fred’s culturally diverse team.
Fred is successful for many reasons, not least because we have built a cohesive team that make it a great place to work, and a great place to do business with. Being proudly culturally diverse has characterised our relatively short history and will continue to shape our future.
