Preparing Your Workforce for a Defence Contract
The City of Rockingham is running a series of workshops to support local business to become Defence Ready. These in-person workshops are designed to provide need-to-know information and critical insights to help businesses prepare and tender for work in the Defence supply chain. Preparing your business to take on a new, large contract in Defence is more than just getting the work systems and processes in place. Preparing the employees and contractors who will be delivering the work is crucial to ensure consistent, sustainable delivery in the long term and improve the retention and morale of the team.
This workshop will review workforce planning, attraction and retention strategies, career and succession planning for their employees. It will also go through the basics of employee consultation and change management to ensure employees are heard and play a constructive part of the preparation and change to work in the defence sector.
