High Growth - Talented Candidates Project (HGTC)
Compass Group, a Platinum member of the Australian Network on Disability (AND) was proudly selected to participate in the NSW Department of Family and Community Services HGTC project.
This project was created to build connections between talented candidates with disability and selected high growth industries, like ours.
Disability can happen in many different ways and results in different types of restrictions. It may result from an accident or illness, or from congenital or genetic disorders. Disability can happen at birth, or occur with age. Disability may be visible or hidden, permanent or temporary. It may have a minimal or significant impact on a person’s everyday life.
Working closely with AND, Compass Group will review and remove unintended barriers to employment, upskill managers in disability awareness through tailored training programs and further build disability confidence within our business to hire, retain and promote people with disability. This project runs to June 2017.
