Champions breakfast coming to Geelong
Diversity Dimensions is pleased to announce its Experience+ Corporate Champions Breakfast Seminar in Geelong that will create awareness within the local area to the benefits of the program. The seminar will be held at The Mercure, Geelong, commencing at 8.00am with an opportunity to network with various other organisations.
The Experience+ Corporate Champions program encourages workplaces to value the experience of older Australians and increase the recruitment and retention of mature age job seekers. Diversity Dimensions will provide advice and support to employers, helping them appreciate the benefits of a diverse, flexible and loyal workforce.
Ms Janine Duggan, HR Business Centre Manager, VIC/TAS for Woolworths Limited will share with us her knowledge and experiences in working with mature age workers and their importance for participation in the workforce. Diversity Dimensions recognises Ms Duggan’s beneficial insights into the retention and benefit of mature aged workers in Australia.
CEO of Diversity Dimensions, Carolyn Gallaway said “we have been working with employers to assist them in retaining and managing mature age Australians. During these projects the benefits that mature age workers bring to the workplace – things like reliability, experience and loyalty have stood out. We hope that this seminar will help employers see that employing and retaining mature age workers is a smart thing to do”.
The seminar will cover how businesses can benefit from a package of mature age assistance including up to $20,000 worth of assistance for Corporate Champions, a $1,000 Job Bonus and grant up to $4,400 for skills recognition and training for mature age workers
