Clarendon Homes has six core values that underpin everything we do. These are the things we live by, that guide our work from day to day.
First impressions count, but we care equally about second and last impressions as well. We understand the trust our customers place in us every day and the responsibility that comes with it. Our impact goes way beyond bricks and mortar that's why we care so much about our customers' experience.
We are only satisfied if we know that today we are better than we were yesterday, and that tomorrow we'll be that little bit better than we are today. Our evolution isn't just about innovation; it's also about simplifying, streamlining, clever thinking... and you.
Our pride encompasses everything - our product, our history, and the way we interact with our customers and each other. We are each empowered to make big (and small) decisions every day. In the end, it's our pride in what we do that keeps us accountable, and that drives us to make the best choices every step of the way.
Our business was created from a passion that fuels us still to this day. This is a place where we come to do our best work; each of us driven by the brand, our colleagues and our customers equally. It just goes to show that with passion, anything is possible.
We build quality homes designed for the way people live, because we understand that a home should just... work. We define quality as doing our very best work no matter who is (or isn't) watching. It's about never just settling for 'ok' and always striving for the ‘wow’ in our finished products.
Our focus is on knowing who our customers are and what they want. We build homes for everyday families, each designed for how they live and what they live for. That's our path and we don't deviate; because we know that what we don't do is just as important as what we do.
Each Quarterly Review, we like to recognise the efforts of outstanding staff members in each department. These rewards can be for effort dedication or a positive change to the business, always in alignment with our six core values - care, pride, quality, evolution, passion and focus.
Clarendon rewards come in all shapes and sizes. For example, some rewards have come in the shape of a Stretch Hummer Limousine! Others have come in the form of a harbour boat cruise or a Harley Davidson ride to Bondi Icebergs. Unforgettable and fun is usually the order of the day.
We also have an internal staff initiative called ‘Pitch it to Peter’ where staff are encouraged to pitch ideas to improve any aspect of our business to Peter Campbell himself. It’s an exciting initiative we recently launched which elicited a wide, varied and enthusiastic response from staff members, and we look forward to taking into its next year.
Throughout the year at Clarendon Homes, we hold a number of staff social events. They’re great for team building, socialising, getting to know each other team members better, and of course, a good way to celebrate any milestones or momentous occasions along the way.
Some of the biggest calendar events over the year are our:
• End of Financial Year Party (held in June each year)
• Christmas Party (held in December each year)
• Melbourne Cup
• Subbies Christmas Party
There are also smaller get-togethers and functions which occur regularly, so we’ll let you know about those well in advance, so you can schedule them in.
On site, we have a kitchen with a fridge and a microwave oven. These are available for you to keep your snacks and/or lunches. You’ll find the kitchen stocked with crockery, cutlery and glasses. There’s also plenty of relaxing places to sit and eat here too.
Throughout the day, please feel free to help yourself to the range of coffee, tea, biscuits, sauces, salt and pepper supplied in the kitchen.
Of course, no self-respecting business would be complete without a bar, right? So you will find our bar located in the main kitchen as well.
The Clarendon bar is stocked with beer, wine, champagne and some soft drinks for staff. The bar is stocked and open at all times, so please help yourself. (While it’s technically open at all times, there is to be no consumption during business hours).
Keep an eye out for our complimentary Friday afternoon cheese platters too.
