Supporting the local community is central to Ingkerreke Outstations Resource Services' (IORS') core values and is an essential part of our business approach. IORS takes its corporate social responsibility seriously and assists with fund raising for local community needs. One such example was raising funds for the purchase of a wheelchair accessible vehicle for a severely disabled outstation resident.
IORS also supports the NT Government's Buy Local Plan and invests in the Territory community by working closely with local suppliers and partners in our region. Ingkerreke ensures that the corporation's office facilities and vehicle fleet are also serviced by local suppliers.
But by far the largest investment that IORS makes in the Central Australian community is developing our local human capital through the training and employment opportunities that we provide. We recruit people who in many cases have strong cultural and family ties to the region and who wish to continue to reside in the Central Australian region throughout their life. The positive development of our employees is beneficial to their families and to the entire community.
