Free Busi­ness Break­fast at Wind­sor Func­tion Cen­tre

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Local Business -

Hawkes­bury City Coun­cil will host a free busi­ness break­fast on Wed­nes­day, 18 Oc­to­ber from 7:30am to 9:30am at Wind­sor Func­tion Cen­tre to launch the ‘Ne­pean Jobs for All’ Project in the Hawkes­bury.

The project pro­vides busi­ness lead­ers and em­ploy­ers with ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion, train­ing and re­sources ( both on­line and in break­fast style fo­rums) that as­sist to lift un­nec­es­sary bar­ri­ers to em­ploy­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­ity and re­alise the ben­e­fits of an in­clu­sive work­force.

Hawkes­bury Mayor, Coun­cil­lor Mary Lyons-Buck­ett be­lieves it is a very worth­while ini­tia­tive.

"Build­ing an in­clu­sive, di­verse work­force ben­e­fits ev­ery­one – your em­ploy­ees, your or­gan­i­sa­tion and the com­mu­nity as a whole; it makes good busi­ness sense,” the Mayor said.

“Em­ploy­ing peo­ple with dis­abil­ity does not cost any more than em­ploy­ing peo­ple with­out dis­abil­ity.

“The Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment pro­vides sup­ports to busi­nesses look­ing to em­ploy peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity, in­clud­ing fund­ing for work­place changes, buy­ing equip­ment and ac­cess to ser­vices.”

Em­ploy­ers are in­vited to at­tend the Hawkes­bury busi­ness break­fast and con­nect with busi­nesses that have im­ple­mented in­clu­sive em­ploy­ment prac­tices, di­ver­si­fied their work­force and can tes­tify to the ben­e­fit it has bought their busi­ness.

Ne­pean Jobs for All is a part­ner­ship project of Pen­rith, Blue Moun­tains and Hawkes­bury City Coun­cils, funded by Na­tional Dis­abil­ity In­sur­ance Scheme In­for­ma­tion, Link­ages and Ca­pac­ity Build­ing Pro­gram.

You can RSVP for the Hawkes­bury busi­ness break­fast by con­tact­ing Celia Bishop, Pen­rith City Coun­cil on 4732 7838 or by email celia.bishop@pen­

Ne­pean Jobs for All busi­ness break­fasts will also be held in Ka­toomba on Thurs­day, 26 Oc­to­ber.
