The Mercury Centre specialises in building collaborative enterprises through consultancy, research, information, advice and training. We describe collaborative enterprise as a group of people working together to achieve a common goal. The recipients of the rewards or dividends from that effort may range from the group themselves through to the entire community. The Mercury Centre cultivates a business approach based on ethical values through providing services that strengthen organisational capacity. We promote the values of co-operation and teamwork; innovation and learning; empowerment; ethical conduct; open communication; and fairness.
We work with people wishing to build strong enterprises with values and ethics as an integral component of their activities. We have an interest in working with people who have limited access to appropriate business skills, support and practices, in particular the community, social enterprise, and regional Australia sectors.
