Many organisations operating across Australia now have well developed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment policies and programs and have been generous enough to share their experiences in order to help other businesses setting out on the same path.
The Workplace Ready Program toolkit is based on those experiences and is written for line managers, human resources managers and supervisors. We have found there is a wealth of support in all sectors of Australian industry for managers and supervisors who want to employ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
This toolkit provides examples and insights from organisations that have successfully implemented Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment programs, including a series of case studies and input from employers and human resource professionals. The insights apply to organisations of all sizes and in all industries. They show the positive outcomes that can be achieved when managers and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders work together to create long-term jobs and strengthen communities.
The content in the Workplace Ready Program is organised around a number of main themes. With each theme, you have background information and then real-world examples and templates.
