About the Event
The Victorian Government’s Growing Regional Opportunities for Work (GROW) initiative started in Geelong in 2015 to address disadvantage through employment opportunities. In 2019 it commenced in Bendigo and has been activating growth and employment across the community along with Shepparton, Ballarat, and Gippsland municipalities.
GROW Bendigo – delivered under the guidance of Bendigo’s Chamber of Commerce, Be.Bendigo – brings together business, government, community organisations, employment providers and individuals with a common goal to improve and expand opportunities for employment in the Bendigo community.
Businesses and organisations join GROW Bendigo FREE OF CHARGE where I work with them to assess their needs & collaborate to solve them – we have over 48 signatories currently.
GROW Bendigo has already delivered more than 200 employment outcomes across multiple target cohorts, and this momentum continues as the approach and practices embed within businesses, and new programs are piloted. One of our biggest local employers is celebrating a retention rate of 95% of staff recruited through this program.
