People Development

We have a strong performance culture and value the knowledge, skills and capabilities our people bring to Orbit.

Last year we supported over 100 employees with professional memberships, nearly 100 employees with professional qualifications and over 200 people with external training and development.

As part of our commitment to our employee’s personal growth, we encourage everyone to have a Personal Development Plan. This supports each employee to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to help progress within their role and perform at their best.

Stars in Orbit

Our company awards celebrate the fantastic ways in which our employees live our values. As an example, each year nominated employees attend a lunch where our Executive team announce the winners.
