Australia is an incredible country with incredible values, opportunities and brilliant lifestyle prospects. Living here is a privilege. We have a combination of some of the most beautiful beaches, rainforests and deserts in the world, we have some of the most iconic landmarks and some of the friendliest people.
“The French said it and the Aussies applied it: Freedom, Equality and Mateship (Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite). This is what being Australian means to me, on top of that is hard work and being down to earth” -Najwa Newbold, Sales Coordinator, COS
Australians are known worldwide for their charisma, charm and kindness. The core of being an Australian revolves around mateship and being a genuine person.
“In many countries when they want to condemn certain acts or behaviours they call them unorthodox, here in Australia we just call them ‘un-Australian’” – Adel Tannouri, IT Support, COS
But not only this we are one of the most multicultural countries in the world. The core of Australian culture has grown so much that it has intertwined itself into other cultures prevalent in Australia, and together all these cultures make up the Australian society, even our national anthem mentions multiculturalism:
“…for those who’ve come across the seas, we’ve boundless plains to share; with courage let us all combine to Advance Australia Fair.” Australian Nation Anthem
We decided to ask the company of COS what it means to them to be Australian?
