Staff have been able to acquire a slice of the business. Between one fifth and a quarter of the equity has been given away to date, and the agency may expand this.

In response to staff feedback, Third City introduced several initiatives, such as moving payday to the 25th of each month; changing office hours from 9am to 6pm to 9am to 5.30pm without changing salaries; and launching health and property practices.

Third City also impressed with its commitment to staff with disabilities, putting together the Employers’ Forum on Disability and training staff to be vigilant about mental health in general.
