CVGT Australia celebrates five-star service in Disability Employment

New figures reveal that unemployed people with disability who work with CVGT Australia receive among the most effective help to find a job of anyone in the country.

The latest release of star ratings for the October – December 2016 quarter from the Department of Social Services shows that CVGT Australia’s Disability Employment Services program has averaged five out of a maximum five-star rating in the Plenty employment service area.

CVGT Australia Deputy Chief Executive Officer John Lynch said the five-star rating was a great achievement and evidence that the company is delivering on its promise to motivate clients to be work-ready and getting people jobs.

“Our Disability Employment program has been operating in the area for more than four years and the results demonstrate how hard our staff are working to ensure our clients get the training and support they need to be work ready.

“A five-star rating is achieved through the number of job seekers that we help to find a job and who stay employed. It demonstrates that we are fulfilling our promise to deliver job-ready people for local employers.

“Of special note, I’d like to acknowledge the teams at offices in Epping, Doncaster East, Greensborough, Coburg and Ringwood who all achieved a maximum five-star rating – a fantastic result.

“We don’t ever underestimate our job seekers. We believe in their abilities and work with them to help them achieve their goals, no matter their barrier.

“We offer a very personal service tailoring training and assistance to suit every individual job seeker,” Mr Lynch said.

The Plenty employment service area stretches from Whittlesea to Doncaster, Thomastown to Kinglake and all of the suburbs in between.

CVGT’s operations in Maroondah (Ringwood, Rowville) and Kiewa (Albury, Wodonga) received a four-star rating while Bayside (Dandenong, Box Hill), Calder (Craigieburn, Broadmeadows), Goulburn Valley (Shepparton, Cobram, Echuca) and Ovens (Seymour, Wangaratta, Benalla) received a three-star rating which is a solid result for these areas.

Star ratings provide a comparative assessment of the performance of Disability Employment Service providers. Stars are allocated from one to five with five being the highest performance.
