Employ Outside the Box
Employ Outside the Box policy document was officially launched by the Hon. Bill Shorten MP in April 2012 at Parliament House, Canberra.
This document, developed by ACCI's EET team, calls on business to consider Employing Outside the Box when hiring new talent. Hiring someone from beyond the traditional pool of workers isn’t about taking a risk or an act of charity. It makes sense from an economic - and business perspective - to embrace the opportunities offered from diverse workforces, securing future skills and labour, and boosting the nation’s economic prosperity
In addition to Employ Outside the Box, ACCI have developed a concise, business friendly handbook, outlining the strong business case for recruiting and retaining mature aged workers.
