Custom Workforce diversity and inclusion free training

Struggling to attract and retain talent in your workplace?

We know attracting, hiring and retaining the right people is one of the biggest constraints for business growth.

To help employers address the labour shortage, we’re proud to deliver Workforce Evolve, an e-learning program funded by the Queensland Government designed by business for business.

Transform your approach to attracting and retaining a diverse and inclusive workforce now and into the future with Workforce Evolve.


What does a diverse and inclusive workforce mean?

Within our community there are many who are motivated to work, or work more, but who have historically been under-represented in the workforce.

These diverse groups include women with family or carer commitments or escaping domestic violence, First Nations Peoples, the LGBTIQA+ community, those with disabilities, people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, and mature aged workers.

Reconsider your approach to hiring and retaining a diverse workforce, both now and in the future.
