Indigenous Employment Strategy Services

An Indigenous Employment Strategy (IES) within your workplace will guide your recruitment processes and help to develop your team. Within our ever-changing economic environment, it pays to invest in innovative, long-term procurement strategies. Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander communities represent a significant untapped pool of talent. Our IES services will help build a culturally positive working environment within your organisation to help attract and retain Indigenous employees.

Become an employer of choice

An Indigenous employment strategy can help your organisation standout amongst the competition and give you the edge in when recruiting talent. Companies that adopt corporate social responsibility within their frameworks are associated with modern, forward-thinking values. A culturally inclusive workplace is an attractive prospect to many employees, improving retention rates and saving costs in recruitment.
