An increasing focus of government is to use infrastructure and other large projects to drive employment outcomes for job seekers and disadvantaged groups in our community. Our programs demonstrate that if disadvantaged job seekers are intensively managed and supported through each component of the (re)employment process the likelihood of success increases. Additionally, the HASCO programs have highlighted that it is possible to reduce the numbers of people not achieving employment, to reduce the employer’s costs (ie direct and indirect); whilst, still providing capable, motivated and competent people and maintaining project performance. Our focus, unlike some organizations is to ensure that we facilitate programs that have real training with real job opportunities, and ensure we have ‘triple-win outcomes – employer, government & jobseeker’.
HASCO has developed a holistic ‘pathways to employment’ to assist:
We are actively facilitating this process on behalf of organizations with direct links to the new employer(s) in civil, rail, construction, construction and utilities. At HASCO, we have established that the best path to success is to work with organizations through the whole process of transitioning a worker to new employment (identification of new role, training, experience/job readiness, and employer placement). The nature of what we could assist an organization with will depend on their needs; however, our evidence shows that the management of the individual through the whole process is critical to success.
Our model to support disadvantaged workers removes obstacles and provides individuals support with the use of intensive project management of the whole employment pathway of non-trade and semi-skilled jobs; whilst offering an opportunity under the right conditions to lift these job seekers to more skilled jobs over time. This means HASCO fully manages and supports the candidate (ie for both work and non-work issues), engages all stakeholders, collaborates with different organizations and government, manages training providers, and ensures the active involvement of the end employer to remove the obstacles to employment. HASCO ensures the right individual is sourced, trained appropriately, provided the necessary support, job readiness & experience, and is transitioned appropriately by working directly with the employers to ensure the business needs are met.
The HASCO Program Model is based on our structured and systematic methodology which has demonstrated and proven success to best meet the specific needs of the employer and disadvantaged job seeker candidates. The program has been designed to:
