In August 2023 the department launched a new series, Hiring Outside the Box.
These short, 30-minute webinars profile different recruitment strategies to help businesses develop inclusive and diverse workforces.
Helping employers and businesses improve their hiring practices ensures a broader pool of talent is considered for jobs across the country.
Initial feedback from the first webinar, which featured industry experts such as Diversity Council Australia, included:
- “Love the short sharp format and real-life success stories”
- “Loved this webinar, seriously inspiring and has got my mind ticking!!”
- “Everything was explained really well”
- “Thank you very much for the excellent information”, and more!
The next webinar will focus on tips and benefits to hiring mature age workers on Wednesday 11 October at AEDT 1 pm. There are a range of benefits to hiring a mature age worker, such as increased productivity, experience, and reliability.
