Our Resources customers want a safe, happy and productive workforce– and that’s what we want too. As managers of multiple villages and townships across Australia, we are responsible for creating exceptional environments, which make resident’s lives relaxing, enjoyable and easier. We know this is a huge advantage for our customers to attract the best talent. It also ensures their workers are in the best physical and mental state to give their ‘all’ during their working day. At ISS, we’re driven to make our resources sites work better through quality, safety and innovation - and make a positive difference in people’s lives.

A Trusted, Aspirational Partner

A Collaborative Approach

ISS is a trusted partner experienced in a high volume, high compliance environments. We are strategically focused on the Resources sector and customer’s benefit from our stability and singular focus on their needs. This focus, coupled with our size, volume and capacity, enables us to enact high impact service improvements aligned to our customer’s aspirations.

Improving each touchpoint in the Village Experience 

ISS entered the energy and resources sector in 2008. Since then, we have built an impressive portfolio in the mining industry, where we deliver services directly to our client’s non-process infrastructure within villages, at mine sites and in townships. ISS is dedicated to improving the lives of the mining workforce at each ‘touchpoint’ of their village experience: from when they arrive at the airport and receive seamless airport transfers and room check-ins, through to ensuring welcoming and hygienic accommodations and providing delicious, fresh and convenient food options.  We do it all – and we do it with people who care.

Good food that supports health, happiness and productivity

Our catering offer brings modern food, a service culture, lifestyle trends and professional standards to the mining population. The focus today is on fresh cook – cooked on the spot with local, fresh ingredients that meet the demands of discerning and diverse guests. It also involves new menus, new ways of presenting and plating food, and a new wow factor.

Our Vision has been informed by our own experience, and through our partnerships with our leading US based catering brand Guckenheimer for global workplace food trends and Unispace Design for implementation.

Bar and Tavern

A time to unwind and enjoy life

The bar/tavern is a place for workers to wind down and ‘switch off’ after a hard day’s work. We know this is an important aspect of village life and it’s up to us to make it a great experience for them. As an experienced manager of wet mess and retail areas in remote villages, we know how to get the balance right between service and compliance with site regulations. ISS create a modern environment, deliver exceptional bar service and manage first-class entertainment - unparalleled in a remote location.
