Endeavour Foundation was named CoAct’s Employer of the Year at the 2016 Awards, celebrating employment and workforce development success.
The award recognises Endeavour Foundation as an employer that gives opportunities to job seekers, provides supportive working environments and promotes retention and development.
Endeavour Foundation CEO Andrew Donne said that staff are one of the organisation’s ‘greatest assets’.
“We already know that the fundamental driver for our staff is delivering services that make a positive difference to people with a disability and their family and carers, so our key focus is on ensuring that they are, in turn, well supported to do so.
“A highly motivated, productive and happy workforce is essential if we are to continue meeting the needs of the people we support.
“While the roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme will of course mean great change for the sector, we believe that – with the right mentoring and support, and an emphasis on training and education – our staff team will be well equipped for this incredible journey.”
CoAct is a national network of locally-embedded community service providers working together to create social and economic opportunities for Australia's disadvantaged.
