HYTEK believes in investing in technology and training to keep our team up to speed with industry trends and demands. We provide mentorship routes for our existing team to upskill them according to industry skills and career paths. And we run an apprenticeship scheme to support local youth employment
HYTEK is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace, and encourages and supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in our culturally safe workplace. We believe that a diverse workplace increases creativity, sparking new ideas and innovative processes. HYTEK aims to attract the best workers, regardless of gender or cultural background, and tap into the wider talent pool, which benefits our industry by evolving a wider set of skills and supporting future potential.
In August 2018, HYTEK partnered with ministry workers from the Presbyterian Church of Queensland, local community members and Brisbane’s Youth Detention Centre, to establish a pathway for young people transitioning out of youth detention. The programme offers young people mentorship and job opportunities to help them move forward with their lives.
‘Thank you HYTEK Group for your continued support over the years with corporate volunteering at services like The Family Place at Logan, staff participating in this year’s Salvos Sleepout and the generous and continued support to The Salvation Army homelessness services. We acknowledge the significance of the support and HYTEK Group’s meaningful and practical consideration to those that are struggling every day through homelessness. Thank You for believing in the work of The Salvation Army and it’s a privilege to recognise HYTEK Group with the 2023 Salvation Army ‘Hero of Hope’ Award – Queensland, as a company that has gone above and beyond to transform the lives of everyday Australians.’
