Every day, from first light to midnight, we’re on a journey. A journey along the open road, the rail track, over the sea and into the sky. And we never stop moving.
Because if we stop, Queensland stops. And movement is what we’re all about. To run Queensland’s integrated transport system. To bring Queensland closer together. To move and connect people, places, goods and services. Safely, securely, efficiently.
And to make this happen, we employ over 8,500 drivers. But they’re not all behind the controls of a boat, a car or a bus. We drive much larger things. Like quality of life. Economic wellbeing. Environmental sustainability. Our state. And our future. And the driving force behind all of these things... is our people.
Navjeet: TMR is amazing with all the different teams and roles, it’s like a giant tapestry that still all connects.
Zoe: The department offers a number of flexible work opportunities, so I think that we’re not just a number on a page, we are real people and the department really respects that and knows that.
David: Team culture’s something that’s very important to us. It’s much like being at sea, we’re all part of one crew.
Cat: Every day is something different, but it’s also fun. I enjoy the work I do and the people I get to interact with on a daily basis.
Penny: TMR has an incredibly supportive and advanced approach to the way we support our employees to achieve all of their outcomes. We really do have a strong culture that’s founded upon diversity and inclusivity.
Nathan: I like what I do because it’s a dynamic work environment and a good team environment is what you have to drive for all the time. If your people are happy they will do their job well.
Penny: There’s a lot of innovation at the moment, there’s a lot of rapid change that we need to be on board with and be at the front of the curve with.
Zoe: I was on secondment in South Korea and I was looking at different collaboration opportunities between Transport and Main Roads and other Korean agencies.
Navjeet: I see value in the work that I do, both short term and long term and I get excited. This organisation provides me the opportunity to do what I want to do and at the same time have a work life balance.
Penny: I’ve had several different careers all within this one organisation and everyday I’m coming to work I’m still challenged, everyday I’m coming to work I’m still learning. I’m still growing as a leader.
Cat: I’ve been able to study whilst working. I’ve been able to raise a family. I’ve been able to give back to the community through my work with TMR also.
Penny: One of the things that I think is really important to the way TMR embraces its values is it's not just about what work we do, it's really about the way we do it.
Voiceover: They’re the people who feel empowered to turn ideas into action. To unleash their potential. They know where we're going and they’re prepared to lead from the front to make a difference. They're the people, who drive the journey.
