Our strategic plan
Employment builds capacity for social and economic inclusion. It can be transformational for individuals, business and their communities.
Our teams in New South Wales, Tasmania and Victoria deliver services to thousands of individuals and businesses. We partner to deliver personalised programs and outcomes that suits an individual’s needs. We put programs into action, and our goal is to find employment solutions that work for each person and meet their needs, skills, experience and interests.
2020 was the starting point for our Strategic Plan 2020-25. It was developed in response to our changing operating environment.
At the time when communities were facing mounting unemployment, with economic and climatic uncertainty, a combination of a prolonged drought and catastrophic bushfires, followed by COVID–19, created challenging circumstances for all levels of government, industry sectors, employers and job seekers. In 2021, the uncertainty continued. The ongoing pandemic forced some businesses to close and unemployment to rise, which further impacted our communities.
Our strategic plan is giving us clear goals and priorities to ensure we adapt to deliver the best possible employment services to people. After its first year, the overall progression towards the achievement of our five-year strategic plan is 35 per cent.
We will continue to stay true on delivering our purpose, enabled by this strategy and priorities.
