Starting and building your family can be both an exciting and sometimes overwhelming experience. We are excited to have introduced new Parental Leave entitlements in 2019 offering a number of key entitlements for mums and dads, to support them to enjoy this time with their family.
Find out more about these in our ‘Parental Leave at Port of Brisbane’ booklet.
PBPL parents now have access to:
16 weeks of paid parental leave for the Primary Carer
2 weeks of paid parental leave for the Partner or Non-Primary Carer
1 week of paid pre-natal leave for parents to attend those important appointments before a baby arrives
Superannuation top up on all company paid and unpaid Parental Leave up to 12 months
Paid leave for a mother experiencing a stillbirth
Request flexible work arrangements at any time
As parents near the end of their leave period, their return to work will be supported to ensure a smooth transition, including Keeping in Touch days.
FLEXIBLE WORK OPTIONS
We realise that everyone has different priorities and responsibilities at different times in their life, such as raising a family or planning for retirement. If you’re interested in exploring your options to get the balance right, we encourage you to discuss these with us.
PURCHASE EXTRA LEAVE
We understand that sometimes 4 weeks of annual leave isn’t enough time to take that holiday you’ve been dreaming about or spend time with your family. To help with this, you can purchase up to 6 weeks additional leave each year.
EXTRA LEAVE DAY
To show you our appreciation for all your hard work, you’ll receive one annual leave day at Christmas, on us.
EARLY ACCESS TO LONG SERVICE LEAVE
You don’t have to work 10 years at PBPL to access Long Service Leave. After 7 years of continuous service, you can apply for pro-rated Long Service leave.
HEALTHY LIFESTYLE PROGRAM
We care about the health and wellbeing of our people. There are a range of options available to help you take care of your mental and physical health, including an annual health assessment, skin screening, flu vaccinations, healthy food options, discounted private health insurance premiums, fitness classes, lifestyle awareness sessions and a Quit Smoking Program.
A range of tools, resources and information to support and assist you with your work, health and life journeys are available through our EAP provider.
DOMESTIC & FAMILY VIOLENCE LEAVE
If you’re facing a difficult personal situation such as domestic and family violence (DFV), you can access support via our Employee Assistance program, discretionary leave, flexible working arrangements and/or workplace support.
EMPLOYEE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
At PBPL, employees and their immediate family have access to free, confidential coaching, counselling and wellbeing services through our Employee Assistance Program.
We offer free gym facilities on or near all our worksites, and subsidised Personal & Group Fitness training is available in the Port Office gym.
As a PBPL employee, you are rewarded with a competitive remuneration package. In addition, many of our positions are also eligible for variable reward payments in the event of company and individual targets being achieved.
FINANCIAL HEALTH CHECKS
Partnerships with providers including ANZ, QSuper, SunSuper and Bupa offer opportunities for you to do a pulse check on your financial matters and planning for your future. From exclusive banking benefits on everyday banking, loans and insurance, to information sessions by industry experts, you will find there is a wide range of support available to meet your needs in this area.
At PBPL, you can salary sacrifice additional superannuation contributions or establish novated leases through our external providers.
We are proud of our employees’ achievements, and we celebrate the anniversaries of our long-standing employees.
