I am pleased to recommend Activetics to an executive or board that is currently considering ageing workforce strategies. Skills shortages are going to be an ongoing challenge for Australia. Wayne and his team have been instrumental in assisting the Austin to strategise and implement sustainable solutions to address this issue. The staff members have responded very positively to the Activetics programme.

Many areas of the Health sector have an ageing workforce, and a mass exodus of “boomer generation” knowledge and experience would be of huge detriment to the organization.   Wayne Bishop and the Activetics team have assisted us to recognise the risks and opportunities associated with an aging workforce, and put in place strategies to better support and manage our mature age staff.  Wayne is a most knowledgeable and engaging consultant and the program has been well received by staff and managers.  Activetics have assisted us to create a sound basis from which to further develop and refine our workforce planning strategies.

FMP have been working with Activetics for the past 5 years. Expertly led by Wayne Bishop we have been able to build a trusting and sharing relationship with our employees  while developing  strategies for providing them  with options for a dignified exit from the workforce. By giving them the skills and  knowledge to plan for the future and supporting them along the way, we are now in a position where our employees are sharing their retirement plans with us well in advance. This has enhanced our ability to forecast our future resource requirements and added a new dimension to the quality of the dialogue we have with our employees. Our Ageing Workforce Program has delivered measurable value to both our people and the bottom line as we have joined together to tackle a problem that had the potential to cripple our business  due to the inevitable loss of tacit knowledge and years of experience as a high percentage of our valued employees near retirement age.
