Activetics Congratulates Vic Roads

 The team here at Activetics would like to congratulate Vic Roads on recently being recognised in the 2013 AHRI Diversity Awards; recognising excellence in age diversity initiatives and programs in the workplace.

Wayne Bishop said; “It is great to see a long standing partner rewarded for their commitment to mature age employees”.

VicRoads is committed to delivering exceptional service to the community and to do so they require a workforce that is skilled, knowledgeable, motivated and innovative.  To deliver on this commitment, they offer a work environment that attracts, develops and retains highly capable people.

VicRoads developed a ‘Pipelines’ initiative which links some of their programs to build a supply, attraction and retention pipeline. Pipeline initiatives include:

  • Schools work experience and associated programs
  • Universities partnerships
  • GAP year
  • Industry based learning
  • Vacation employment
  • Cadetships
  • Graduate program
  • Transition to retirement

The judging panel said:  “VicRoads demonstrates a well-balanced approach to age diversity in the workplace, with programs catering for entry level employees to those looking at retirement. This balance is fundamental to developing and maintaining a talent pipe-line.”
