Havencab supports fair workers’ rights
Havencab has consistently championed fair work practices for industry workers.
Many are aware that the majority of cleaning organisations don’t pay award wages, or enter into sham contracts with their employees, to eliminate entitlements. This in turns makes it impossible for reputable companies to compete on a fair playground, devalues our industry and worst of all, it severely disadvantages our workers.
Fair Work now requires the courts to impose penalties under section 550 of the Fair Work Act 2009. This means that not only cleaning organisations or individuals can be found liable, but also other persons or organisations who were involved or knew about the contravention.
Havencab has been a long-term advocate of fair wages and award compliance and our clients have supported us in our journey to promote fair wages and a level playing field for all in the commercial cleaning industry. Read more here.

Why the Owners Corporation of Anadara and Alexander, Barangaroo chose Havencab?
In the world of business today, trust is more important than ever, especially when it comes to your relationships with your clients, customers, employees, and all stakeholders in your business. But what is meant by “trust.” Webster’s dictionary defines trust as the “assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.”
I strongly believe that trust is right at the foundation of the survival and success of any business. Without trust there can be no sustainable business.
One of the major challenges and problems facing businesses today is the building of trust internally among the employees, management and ownership to create a healthy and productive work environment. Research has shown that trust is the basis for creating healthy work environments because it forms the foundation for effective communications, associate retention, motivation, and contributions of discretionary energy (Source: Heathfield, S. 2002. Trust Rules! The most important secret.).
There are certain components of trust that every client, customer or other stakeholder in your business looks for in doing business with you. There are several levels of trust and these are some that I consider very important.
- trust in technical competence and the knowledge to carry out a job to specification
- trust in ethical conduct and character is paramount so personal honesty and integrity must be impeccable
- trust in your interpersonal skills and ability to maintain confidentiality and treat information with the utmost respect and privacy
- trust in transparency and openness in your business relationship
- trust in holding yourself accountable for all actions within your business relationships
In summary, the foundation of a great business is created by organisational credibility, respect and fairness which form the foundation of trust. I believe this is what the Owners Corporation of Anadara and Alexander, Barangaroo found in the offerings of The Havencab Group.
