Keeping you safe and healthy
With the rapid global spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), our focus is first and foremost on the health and wellbeing of our team, clients and families.
As a precautionary measure for everyone’s safety, especially our vulnerable groups, we will be following steps to make sure we’re in line with what the Australian Government expects, but also what the community expects from us as a responsible business. This means being proactive and safe.

Work From Home policy
Starting from Friday 20 March, we strongly encourage all of you to Work From Home. This policy will be in place indefinitely and will be reviewed week-to-week as we take guidance from our government.
For those of you who need to come into the office, we’ll require you to drive your own car or have someone drop you off. DrawHistory will provide you up to $25 per week parking stipend for Wilson Parking’s Book a Bay under our building. We need to be mindful and kind to fellow community members around us. Please do not take public transport.
Sharing Instagram tips
As a community, when we do our small part, we help our family and friends and protect more vulnerable members of our society. We’ve developed a set of quick tips you can share via Instagram Stories. They encourage virtual connection and self-care during times of social isolation.
