Compass Group – Launch into Work
The number of people who are long-term unemployed in Australia has increased significantly over the past decade; many of whom are women who remain unemployed after taking career breaks to raise children, undertake carer responsibilities or in some cases, due to family domestic violence. All these women are significantly economically disadvantaged as they progress toward retirement.
Compass Group recognise women provide a substantial talent pool for its business operations and co-developed an innovative initiative called ‘Launch into Work’ to proactively increase female participation in its workforce.
The program has delivered 100 per cent job placement and many Certificate II qualifications in Hospitality. In addition to work skills, the program also focuses on practical life skills, building confidence and has been life-changing for many participants.
