We celebrate another successful round of the Diversity Dimensions Program that aims at attracting and placing indigenous job seekers within the Woolworths workforce.
CVGT Australia jobactive participants successfully completed the program with Woolworths at stores in Kooringal, Market Place and Gurwood Street.
This year’s program was structured a little differently with the program delivered via Zoom due to the introduction of COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.
CVGT Australia has been working in conjunction with Diversity Dimensions for the past three years to help indigenous job seekers into employment throughout its Woolworths stores in Wagga Wagga.
The program was initiated to address the unique challenges faced by indigenous people that prevent some from having a stable, beneficial career. The rate of indigenous people leaving jobs is one of the highest and some lack the skills to attract employers.
The program has been a proven success with most of those participating gaining employment. After successfully completing the program, this group of job seekers started employment with Woolworths in September.
