An entirely Western Australian, family owned organisation, JWH Group Pty Ltd has grown from employing 120 office staff in its early stages, to currently over 640 staff and in excess of 2,000 sub-contractors. A composite group of building companies situated in twelve locations, with an even spread between metropolitan and regional areas, the group is now Australia’s third largest home builder with an annual turnover in excess of $450 million.
The collaboration of reputable and successful companies, coupled with geographical spread and dedicated staff with many years experience, forms a firm foundation for JWH Group Pty Ltd to move forward into the future.
The group culture of JWH Group is based on critical core values of care and respect, integrity and trust, initiative and accountability, enterprise, innovation and achievement. These values are strongly promoted and run through every facet of the group.
From the very beginning, the JWH Group set out to be a company which would attract people looking to make a difference; high achievers who would respond to its call and challenges.
The company’s growth philosophy emerged as a result. Dynamic growth not only for the future of JWH Group, but also to provide opportunities and challenges for people to continually grow within the group.
The majority of JWH Group’s senior management have come from other positions within the company and manage their business units independently, seizing the opportunities the group offers for both professional and personal development.
Julian Walter primarily plays a mentoring role, guiding the development and growth of the individual business divisions, while encouraging new ideas and new approaches. It is the company’s belief that by giving people the right tools, latitude and freedom, all individuals can reach their full potential.
The company constantly promotes and encourages innovation and is at the forefront of the Building Industry, responding to business and housing trends quickly and subsequently capitalising on them. It is this innovation in housing design that has maintained the group in its strong leadership position.
