We are proud to announce that Cannings Purple has been recognised as an Employer of Choice in The Australian Business Awards (ABA) 2020. Although we’ve won a host of awards over the years, both regionally and internationally, we are particularly delighted to be recognised as an Employer of Choice.     Annette Ellis is our CEO: “We invest a great deal in workplace culture and values, then hire people who share them.  This means that our values don’t live in a manual, or on a poster in the kitchen, they are reflected in behaviours that we hold each other accountable for and that’s a

As Australia faces record levels of debt and deficit in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Western Australian Treasurer Ben Wyatt today bucked the trend to post a $1.2 billion surplus in the State Budget, followed by surpluses in the range of $363 million in 2021-2022 to $1.5 billion in 2023-2024. Buoyed by high iron ore prices, which enabled Western Australia to bank $8.4 billion in royalties in 2019/20, the coffers are well placed to support the State’s economic recovery and combat the ongoing threat of the coronavirus. The Budget assumes that Western Australia’s borders will remain closed until April 2021. Importantly,

If the events of 2020 have taught us anything, it’s how important it is to have a home to keep us safe. The uncertainties of our health, employment and financial security has threatened all of us during COVID-19 but many of us are aware we will collectively get through this and continue on with our lives. Unfortunately, these uncertainties are the norm for over 44,000 young Australians without a home and we’re looking to change that. On this year’s World Homeless Day, Cannings Purple, along with other well-known Australian organisations, have partnered with Whitelion to support the #NoHomeAddress campaign. Whitelion is a not-for-profit

From ‘Back in Black’ to a more than $966 billion budget blackhole in 2024, Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has handed down the most significant budget in Australian history. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government has provided $257 billion in direct economic support to cushion the blow and strengthen the recovery. The 2020-21 Budget commits a further $98 billion including $25 billion in direct COVID-19 response measures and $74 billion in new measures to create jobs. The 2020-21 Budget is focussed on measures to stimulate a private sector-led recovery that drives economic growth and employment, as well as trying to

International Access to Information Day is held on 28 September every year and recognises the community’s right to access government-held information. This year, the focus will be on the right to information during times of crisis and on the advantages of having constitutional, statutory and/or policy guarantees for public access to information to save lives, build trust and help the formulation of sustainable policies throughout and beyond the COVID-19 crisis. The community’s right to access government-held information is a multi-faceted and complex issue, so we have enlisted Cannings Purple's Director, Design and Digital, Jamie Wilkinson and Associate Director, Government Relations, Jennifer Kirk

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed the way West Australians go about everyday life. Much of this change relates to the increasingly digital flavour of our working lives. With so many offices closed, we’ve used programs like Microsoft Teams to conduct meetings and co-ordinate workflows, while communicating with (and being part of) webinar audiences that stretch across the world. But amid all the disruption, we’ve also seen examples of the best of humanity. Fremantle’s Left Bank pub, for instance, is retaining and paying staff under the Federal Government’s Job Keeper program but, with the venue shut, sending them out to

Negotiating the COVID-19 pandemic is currently a major focus for the WA Government. The good news for business is there will soon be opportunities to be involved in the recovery. Staff in Ministerial offices have spent recent weeks keeping pace with daily decisions to implement the Government’s response to the pandemic. But as the curve continues to flatten the Government has an eye to the future and is keen to hear about projects that will inject valuable income and jobs into our communities as part of the recovery from COVID-19. Treasurer Ben Wyatt has made it clear that initiatives to boost the
