Our Team

We recruit and retain the best and most experienced raisebore operators in the world. We foster and actively support continuous improvement and innovation by our staff through: identifying talent and recognising the importance of aligning a skill set with particular tasks; setting high goals and expectations of our team; developing career paths and promotion from within; and providing access to further education for our team.

We also place importance on maintaining an open dialogue. It is of utmost importance that our teams in the field maintain an ongoing and open dialogue with all key stakeholders. Besides our due reporting process, we encourage: talking frankly–while being respectful of other cultures, experience and beliefs; accepting and providing constructive criticism when appropriate; and adding value to the team as a result of unique experiences.

The congruence of goals and objectives between all major stakeholders is vitally important for any project. We ensure an upfront mutual understanding of expectations and requirements (both on and offsite) and take the time to understand and verify changes in requirements. Internal assessments and mutually agreed key performance indicators ensure this process happens. We attribute the success of this approach to the fact we regularly exceed expectations and set new benchmarks in the industry.

At Raisebore Australia we celebrate our success. As with any great achievement–if it is worthwhile commencing, it is certainly worthwhile celebrating. We achieve this by being proud of our team and their development through our Family Values; encouraging each other upon the completion of difficult tasks; rewarding achievement of our team and sharing achievement with each other in offsite Team Building Events. At Raisebore Australia we believe in and exercise the Raisebore Australia Family Values everyday.
