Intrec Management is committed to the integration of socially responsible values into their operations and business culture.
Intrec aims to attract and nurture the best people. Staff retention is high and internal promotion is preferred. Individuals have an annual allowance allocated to training to promote professional development.

Monthly safety training is completed by all employees via Vocam Safety TV. The Intrec Annual Conference brings the whole company (NSW, QLD, VIC & Canberra) together for a weekend of group bonding, development and training. Intrec recently welcomed a young female Construction Cadet from the Netherlands for 6 months.

Intrec promote a healthy and active work-life balance. Intrec enter a staff team in the local mixed touch football competition, host an annual industry golf day, initiate regular after work tennis games and cricket matches. All donations from the golf day and cricket match are given to Bear Cottage (an initiative of the Children’s Hospital at Westmead).
At INTREC we hold an annual Golf Day to celebrate our achievements and success throughout the year. With the support from our clients and sponsors, INTREC encouraged donations to the Bear Cottage Charity. Collectively, we managed to raise an outstanding $5,000.
Bear cottage is a charity that is there for every Australian child, parent, or family who is in need. In the last year alone, Bear Cottage has treated over 57, 847 emergency cases, cared for 32,188 inpatients, supported 886, 725 outpatient appointments and performed 14,486 surgical procedures. INTREC are proud to be supporting such a serviceable organisation.
Additionally, INTREC has donated Christmas trees and display boards to the Holy Family School in Lindfield and to the Acre Woods Childcare in Roseville.
For the last three years, Intrec has provided the Intrec Scholarship in Construction Management and Property at the University of NSW. This annual scholarship was established to encourage and assist a student to undertake education in construction management and property at the UNSW Faculty of the Built Environment.
Intrec also donates to a number of local charities including Bear Cottage and Royal Flying Doctors Service.
Supporting Local Communities: The QLD office regularly employs local resources for regional projects. Example projects include James Cook University and Dysart State High School mechanical/electrical upgrade project.
Intrec supports employees to volunteer within the community and employees are entitled to take Community Service and Defence Leave. INTREC recently won a “Defence Reserves Support Council Supportive Employer Award 2014” in NSW and goes on to represent NSW in the National Awards to be held later in 2014. Current staff receive additional leave entitlements to work in the Australian Army Reserve & SES. One of our staff members has also volunteered in Kenya to help build schools.
Dealing with the aftermath of flood waters caused by ex-cyclone Oswald (February 2013), Intrec offered assistance to Logan city council and donated labour and costs to remove silt and debris.
Recycling and sustainability in the community is encouraged by Intrec management. Intrec donated a redundant kitchen earmarked for the tip on a commercial project to the First Sailors Bay Sea Scouts (July 2013). Intrec donated all labour involved to transport, modify and reinstall it into the Scout Hall.
