Building Better Careers Through Technology

Building Better Careers Through Technology

At Schlam, our dedication to innovation and technology goes above production efficiency—it’s about nurturing the skills, careers, and well-being of our people. We believe that by fostering an innovative work environment, we can meet the growing demand for our products and fleet maintenance services while simultaneously offering our people opportunities to thrive within a world-class setting.

Creating an Innovative Work Environment
Our relentless pursuit of efficiency and quality has led us to implement advanced technologies that benefit both our operations and our workforce. By incorporating state-of-the-art practices and fostering a culture of communication and inclusion, we ensure that our people are not just working, but evolving in an environment that supports their professional growth and personal well-being.

Investing in Automation and Advanced Manufacturing
Our main manufacturing facility at Forrestfield has seen significant investments in automation, including robotics, to enhance efficiency and streamline production. These advancements create a leading-edge manufacturing environment that nurtures personal growth and employee well-being.

The introduction of a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) further integrates and optimises our production operations, bringing our manufacturing capabilities to world-class standards. The MES seamlessly connects our capital equipment, automated systems, and the people who operate and manage them, not only improving our production capability, but also making work easier for our people.

Seamless Communication
Recognising the need for communication with people across our operations, Schlam has adopted a Human Resource Information System (HRIS). This platform, accessible via a user-friendly mobile app, facilitates efficient communication, information sharing, and employee recognition. With instant messaging capabilities, the HRIS keeps our extended team connected.

Enhancing Onboarding with Technology
Our Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and HRIS streamlines the onboarding process for new people. This robust system ensures a comprehensive and seamless recruitment and onboarding experience, offering enhanced customisation through data mapping functionality. This integration not only simplifies the recruitment process but also sets new hires up for success from day one.

The Impact of Technology on Employee Well-being
By investing in cutting-edge technology, Schlam not only enhances production but also significantly contributes to the safety and well-being of our workforce. The MES, for example, helps to streamline operations, reduce errors, and creates a safer working environment. This focus on safety and efficiency ensures that our people can perform their jobs effectively while minimizing risks.

Empowering Our Workforce
Our commitment to technology has enabled our staff to excel in their roles, contributing to Schlam’s success in several ways:
• Preparedness for Future Needs: Schlam is now better equipped to meet tomorrow’s challenges.
• Risk Reduction: By providing teams with opportunities to learn and innovate, we minimise operational risks.
• Empowering People: Our people are gaining the necessary skills to excel in their roles.
• Talent Development: We develop promotable people, strengthening our internal talent pipeline.
• Growth Achievement: These measures have allowed Schlam to pursue and achieve its growth strategies.

Creating Employment Opportunities
As we continue to invest in technology and automation, our team has grown, creating new roles and providing employment opportunities in the communities where we live and operate. By focusing on technological advancements, we ensure that our workforce is prepared for the future, equipped with the skills and tools needed to thrive in an ever-evolving industry.

At Schlam, building better careers through technology isn’t just a goal—it’s our commitment. Join us on this journey as we continue to innovate, grow, and empower our people to reach new heights.
