Aboriginal Employment Plan
eHealth NSW is committed to providing employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
As at March 2017, Aboriginal employment is currently at 1% at eHealth NSW, but we are working to increase this through strategies such as the ICT Cadetship program. Over the past two years 90 more Aboriginal people have come to work with eHealth NSW and HealthShare NSW.
Our Aboriginal Employment Plan 2017 – 2020 sets out our strategies to increase Aboriginal employment and enhance knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal culture.
Our key focus areas are:
- Recruitment – expand the range of employment opportunities available.
- Retention – support and develop our Aboriginal workforce so they can build sustainable careers with us.
- Development – foster Aboriginal staff development to progress careers.
- Culture – continue to enhance staff knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal culture to create workplaces where Aboriginal culture and people are valued and respected. Our Plan sets out clear actions for each Focus Area.
