We are all highly aware that the workforce shortage is very challenging for regional tourism businesses at the moment.
This week we ran a full-day, in-depth workshop to empower our region’s tourism business operators to rethink their workforce. Using our latest research, we delved into attracting and hiring new talent, advertising and promoting jobs, targeting the right applicants, improving hiring practices, interviewing, training and up-skilling, as well as how to actually retain staff in a work environment landscape that has changed.
We were thrilled to have businesses from all over Victoria’s High Country join us in Wangaratta to workshop a new and customised approach to staff recruitment and retention, and we look forward to continuing to support High Country businesses in the area of staff attraction.
