As part of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s (ACCI) Employ ‘Outside the Box’ initiative, Business SA recently hosted the launch of the “Business Case for Recruitment and Retention of Mature Aged Workers.”
The Hon Kate Ellis MP was joined by Jenny Lambert (Director of Employment, Education and Training at ACCI) to address guests and highlight the important role of mature aged workers in today’s workforce. The launch coincided with the National Employment, Education and Training Committee meeting hosted by Business SA.
Guests included representatives of employer organisations from throughout the country.
The initiative is a call to employers to expand workforce participation by employing ‘Outside the Box’ when they next recruit. The “Business Case for Recruitment and Retention of Mature Aged Workers” is the first of an accompanying series of employer guides.
Ms Ellis said that in a time when some sectors are crying out for workers, it makes great sense for employers to look again at what older Australians can offer their business.
“I congratulate the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Business SA on driving the cultural change we have to see in our work places over the coming years, and I urge every employer in South Australia to join them,” Ms Ellis said.
