AICC History

The AICC Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce was established in the mid 1950’s by a dedicated group of Australian business leaders in Melbourne and Sydney who sought to promote the export of Israeli goods and services to Australia.

Among the pioneers were Syd Field, Kalman Bar-On, Harry Castle, Ben Cohen, Gerald Falk, Stanley and Bernard Ferster, Max Freilich, Gerald Goldsmith, Sir Asher Joel, Louis Klein, Arnold Newhouse, Shya Redelman, Eli Tal and Paul Ungar.

The early pioneers had much to show for the voluntary efforts, with the opening of the Israeli Trade Commission, Israeli Government Tourism Office, and the arrival of Zim, Koor and other Israeli companies to our shores and the opening of the Australian Trade Commission in Tel Aviv.

Since its formal registration in 1970, trade between the two countries has continued to grow and the range of items traded has dramatically expanded. Both Australia and Israel have learnt much from each other and the work of the Chamber has allowed much of this potential to be realised. An entrepreneurial and talented leadership and staff have ensured the continued growth of the organisation, and have established the Chamber as one of Australia’s leading business organisations with a strong brand and reputation in the marketplace.

In the 1980’s a new strategic direction for the Chamber was set which saw the Chamber transformed from an organisation of committed volunteers to a professional business organisation that promoted Australia-Israel business ties using a contemporary marketing formula.

The Chamber has grown to be a national organisation with professionally staffed offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Tel Aviv.

TLC Culture Check

Tracking Crucial Culture Dimensions in Your Organisation on an Ongoing Basis

The best way to know how happy and productive employees are, is to regularly track how they are feeling.

Most progressive organisations survey their work cultures at least once a year, but is that really enough? Daily work experiences can alter individual feelings very quickly, so once a year is often inadequate if an organisation wants to understand and act fast on any cultural changes.

Factor analytic research by Perception Mapping, using 8.5 million data points, has identified five Crucial Culture Dimensions driving high performing workplaces. The dimensions form the TLC Culture Check, designed to help organisations measure and compare their culture on a continuous basis.
The 5 dimensions identify how well a work culture is operating.

In high performance and productive workplaces, staff always:

Perception_Mapping_Logo

Perception Mapping for Organisations

Customised Work Culture Diagnostics

Every workplace consists as a series of unique subcultures formed in all the work teams, departments and business units. Perception Mapping (PM) provides fully customised diagnostic surveying to help understand each subculture and what interventions are needed to improve the performance of any group.

Helping organisations understand that, in the very best performing workplaces, people really enjoy coming to work and perform at their best when they are treated well, are engaged, and having fun.

Leaders in every organisation need cultural intelligence to identify where cultural interventions are required, including but not limited to finding where staff feel they are being poorly treated, where they feel dis-engaged from the decisions that affect their work, where they feel dis-empowered and unable to self-manage, where they are being poorly led, and where they are unable to speak up on any issue because they fear retribution.

Deployed internationally by more than 1,000 organisations in 10 countries, PM has been providing customised culture diagnostics for over 20 years.

By special arrangement, The AICC(WA) now provides members and sponsors with access to this well proven fully customised diagnostic surveying process, at AICC(WA) discounted rates.

• Survey setup investment $1,895 plus GST

• Question and statement customisation $995 plus GST

• Survey reports $295-$395 per report depending on volume plus GST

Omnia Jobfit Profiling

Getting the Right Person into the Right Job

High level productivity starts with “getting the right person into the right job.”  Now the AICC(WA) has special access to the world leading Omnia job fit and career fit profiling systems.

Every person has a preferred job type, a preferred work style and preferred work environment. So, it is critical to spend time selecting the person that best fits any job on these three dimensions. Omnia research shows that people in jobs matching their preferred dimensions will perform at the highest levels, while those in poorly matched jobs become easily demotivated.

• Computer generated profile $150 plus GST
