Rachel Manson, our Head of Sales and Commercial, discusses some of the latest news from around Atira over this quarter including an update on Semester 2 sales, a new office in Sydney and the Performance Review process.

Welcome to the Atira newsletter.

Firstly, I wanted to start off with a thank you on behalf of the Senior Leadership Team for all your efforts and hard work. Let’s take some time to reflect, recognise and celebrate some of the key achievements the business has made over this quarter.

This business is always busy, always on, and businesses like Atira always have important things happening all the time. So thank you for all your hard work and your efforts.

Now to reapps –  They have been a little tougher than anticipated but all of the properties are still trying their hardest. We need to dig deep and try to get as close to our targets as possible.

Moving on to the properties – Our Adelaide property has gone past it’s census date target. Well done to the Waymouth Street team. Melbourne has been on fire. Our focus remains on Brisbane and also driving the performance as high as it can go. I wanted to do a special shout out to the Call Centre Team for all their hard work and efforts during this very busy time. Thank you Sarah and team.

The Finance Team have successfully moved office in Sydney and are doing a great job in wrapping up financial year 2019. It’s a busy time of year out at the properties, where the teams are busy managing departures and getting the properties ready for Semester 2 arrivals. Thank you also to the Residential Life teams for supporting the residents through the stressful exam period. Thank you to everybody across the Atira teams for all your hard work and efforts, it is genuinely appreciated.

As you all know we are currently in the middle of doing performance reviews. These need to be completed by the 26th of July, and the documents returned to Dani in Head Office by the 9th August. We are also in the middle of doing online training. We know who has done this and those who haven’t. It must be done by the 18th July. If you haven’t started, can you please ensure you get this completed.

Congratulations to James and Sam on the birth of their baby girl Sienna. All are doing well and it’s the first Atira baby which is exciting. Also a very special mention to Troy Henderson who is headed to New York to get married. We wish him the very best!

Thank you very much.
