This means that we can work more closley with our supply chain business partners – partners that can tell Merino’s story and help sell effectively to consumers. AWI staff While the core functions Marketing, Wool Production, Human Resources, Information Technology, Finance, Corporate Affairs and 22 ANNUAL AWI 07/08 Corporate Services will continue to be based in Sydney, the new business model now includes a key account management structure in the three regions of Europe, the Americas and Asia. Key Account Management (KAM) is our internal capability that will develop partnerships with businesses and deliver our Knowledge, Innovation and Marketing (KIM) proposition to retailers and manufacturers. See the map on page 20 for further details about the location of AWI employees, as at 30 June 2008. Following the acquisition of The Woolmark Company, AWI’s worldwide presence was significantly bolstered. As at 30 June 2008, AWI had a total of 185 staff members worldwide, with 84 in Australia, 55 in Asia, 41 in Europe, and 5 in the US. The current structure of the company is depicted in the diagram above. The success of the business model relies on the performance of our people through their capabilities and their understanding of how their role contributes towards increasing demand for Australian Merino wool. In order to achieve this, human resource (HR) programs are to be aligned with the business strategy and new business model. Some key HR programs on which the company is working are: – Build a transparent performance management system that encourages a high performance culture – Ensure the company retains staff by providing them with a complete induction to the company – Provide ongoing feedback on employees’ performance – Establish global policies that provide a robust employee framework – Ensure AWI meets its obligations under local labour and occupational health and safety laws The AWI executive team is committed to supporting the programs to ensure their staff have the right tools, knowledge and training in order to deliver the AWI message to its partners.
