Mounties Group Distributes Care Packs to Staff One Week After Shutdown

In his famous opening paragraph of A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens said, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..” and for 650 Mounties Group staff located across seven clubs and two resorts, it has certainly been a frightening and uncertain time.

On Friday, the management team packed Care Packages to spread a little joy amongst the people they had no choice but to stand down as a result of enforced Club closures.

All staff were invited to collect their packages via two drive thru points, with the random act of kindness a welcome relief from the challenges of the week. Two bases were used to distribute packs – Mounties and Harbord Diggers – which were both set up to click and collect. Staff drove through the porte cochere entry points, with the management team distributing the packs straight to their vehicles.

“This week has been the toughest in my 40 year working life. The responsibility that the Board and management team feel toward our people is great. It sits heavily on us,” said Mounties Group Chief Executive Officer Dale Hunt.

“In uncertain and fearful times, we all look for the break in the clouds where the sun shines through. Anything we can do to alleviate just a small part of the worry and concern that our people feel is worth whatever effort we can make,” he added.

The Care Packages included items such as hand sanitiser, masks and toilet paper – kind of a ‘protection pack’ designed to help keep staff safe.

“Mounties Group will not go quietly into the night,” Mr Hunt continued.

“The health and wellbeing of our teams over the next six months is paramount. We will get up and go again, and we will be better than ever. I firmly believe that the measure of a person, a team, an organisation is not how well they do when times are great, but how they live and operate, the decisions they make when their backs are to the wall.

“Make no mistake, times have never been tougher. But we are turning our attention to delivering solutions, regardless of the size of the problem and we are focusing on the betterment of our staff while out of employment. And we will be doing everything in our power to re-employ our people when circumstances permit us to do so.

“In that vein, we will be delivering further initiatives and rolling them out over the next few weeks,” concluded Mr Hunt.
