“At OzHarvest, we like to think we are a big yellow family made up of passionate people with huge hearts, who believe good food should not go to waste, while so many are still hungry.” – Head of People & Culture, Sharon Gray

Sharon Gray, Head of People and Culture at OzHarvest talks about cultivating culture at OzHarvest. 

OzHarvest is Australia’s leading food rescue organisation, a non for profit that collects quality excess food from commercial outlets. The organisation operates Australia-wide, rescuing over 180 tonnes of food each week and delivers it to people in need. 

OzHarvest hires based on values and attitude. The importance of their values ring true throughout the entire company; from their first interview with the company into high-level board meetings, they practice what they preach. They are boldly courageous and strive to practice gratitude daily. 

We talk about what OzHarvest did for their people during COVID-19, what they are doing in an ongoing capacity, and why leading from the top with integrity and authenticity is so important.
