Aboriginal Employment Plan

 

Latrobe Regional Hospital is one of the largest employers in Gippsland and is aiming to take a leading role in demonstrating best-practice methods of producing meaningful employment and training outcomes to the local Aboriginal community.

In 2012 Latrobe Regional Hospital developed an employment plan in accordance with Karreeta Yirramboi,  a Victorian Government initiative to improve public-sector employment and career development outcomes for Aboriginal people. The objective of the hospital’s plan is to increase the participation of employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by one per cent of the total workforce.

The hospital has a focus on traineeships and has developed a strong partnership with Latrobe City Council to deliver its Indigenous Pre-Employment Package which provides seven weeks of accredited training.

The program also consists of orientation and paid work experience placements to gain a better understanding of the diverse range of employment opportunities at Latrobe Regional Hospital.

Employment at Latrobe Regional Hospital has been linked to the provision of cross-cultural awareness. Hospital staff participate in training to better understand Aboriginal culture and learn how to develop strategies on how to supervise and mentor the trainees.

Latrobe Regional Hospital’s Aboriginal Employment Plan offers a direction for today but is evolving and able to move with the requirements of new initiatives for greater employee and partnership opportunities.
