Productive fun work place where you are groomed well into your profession

I enjoyed working at Aurum despite challenges we face with funding and retrenchment. Team work and support was great as well as personnel development. If i was given a chance to go back to Aurum, i would do that as soon as possible.

Productive,teamwork,self improvements & good working environment with supportive & positive colleagues.etc

Good,warm welcoming,encourage us to do the best all time,always check for the loopholes in your working environment. Install the values of work ethics all the time, making you feel free & open to any challenges you came across during your working environment. They always improve your work by giving you opportunities to attend different trainings on new development in our working environment,so that we remaining the best in what we do,which is very exciting for us colleaguesSometimes you can feel if you didn't attend any activities at work,because of some life collapses,but all in all what I'm trying to say is that there's always somethings to catch ups in our work situation. We were always given a room to expand & enjoy our work to the fullest,although our contracts are ended but we miss everything about our work around Ekurhuleni health facilities,as we always make the best of our work. As we've taken as our full time task...

Pros

New information all the time, to make our work enjoyable.

Cons

Long hours was always through arrangements. We always work avarage hours..

I had a good balance between work and life with a good salary

I start at 7:00, clock-in, checking all work related messages, calls and emails from the previous day and respond back, checking any new information to capture.

None

I believe that we are under paid as lay Counselors because we are the ones who are generating the stats or numbers that are required by the funders yet we get less salaries, people who just capture that information and those who come and calculate the numbers that we made get paid more than us. It's very unfair

Salary

The working conditions are good but the salary is too little and there are no benefits . There is too much work to do regardless of your job position.

Since i started to work at aurum, i have learned a lot, like some people personality,environment,confident and hope.

Learning people's personalities gave me something, like how to handle working with different people, how to behave towards them, how to handle pressure in different society and it also gave me that confidence of all people are equal at a work place as long as you respect, love and have teamwork. I love working at aurum wish I can go back in future, helping people with their health and living a healthy life in lifetime
