The company's recognition strategy is rolled out and communicated to all managers through workshops and guidelines. This includes recognising individual achievements privately and publically e.g through 6 weekly G Forces and the annual Grafter Awards ceremony, as well as monthly Platinum Parking awards, Massages of the Month and Spin the Wheel prizes for people who have been nominated. Managers have the 'Recognition Tool Kit' as a guide and have the ability to spend a set budget on recognising individuals and teams. Everyone in the agency can nominate people through the gratitude boards, which are on public display, and all have easy access to the Thank you cards, which can be personally written and distributed in a timely manner.

The company's comprehensive internal training schedule supports the specific requirements of their employees in a way that an external provider couldn't necessarily do, as it is so specific to their business, run by people within the business. They have a true knowledge sharing focused approach, which helps to keep costs down, but has proven to be highly successful with increased percentage scores in their annual employee survey for Training & Development. It has raised skill levels across the business and supports the development plans of all employees, as it provides employees with the opportunities to learn new skills and gain further understanding of industry relevant information.
