Getting the business to understand TA’s real value

The healthcare and social assistance sector is now the biggest employer in Australia, responsible for one in five new jobs created, experiencing over 10 percent year-on-year growth.

A positive recruitment experience is imperative to recruit the “essential services worker” who delivers services to vulnerable Australians.

In this session, David will share how he:

  • Established an internal recruitment function that has allowed Life Without Barriers (LWB) to grow from 4,500 to circa 8,000 employees in under 5 years;
  • Reports to the LWB business using, data, trend analysis, and engaging infographics to show their contribution; and importantly,
  • Ensures the numbers articulate the meaning and people behind the storyline.
