Today, Tuesday the 7th of August, is the official day to thank, honour, recognise and celebrate the hundreds of thousands of people who work in the aged care industry across Australia.
3D Recruit want to say thank you to the managers, nurses and care workers, to the cooks and hospitality teams, to the drivers, cleaners and laundry employees, to the volunteers, to the allied health staff, to the leisure and lifestyle officers and administration teams.
You make a positive difference in the lives of all Australians that receive aged care services. The work you do in this challenging but rewarding industry is incredibly valuable. We recognise the importance of your roles and will continue working with aged care peak bodies, providers and employees to assist in transforming the workforce and careers.
Also, congratulations to the Whiddon Group for starting the great initiative of “Aged Care Employee Day”.

Thank you for the opportunity!

In December 3D Recruit held our first Leadership Education Session and it was a huge success! Big thank you to Markus van Driel for being our guest speaker and to all of the Managers in the Aged Care sector that attended. More sessions will be held over the coming months so please contact us if you would like to be included on the guest list.
Leadership in the aged care sector is continuing to be a topic of great interest for our industry. Every organisation, every workplace, every team needs leaders, but is it something we actively talk about?
We all know leadership and career journeys are different for everyone. Join the Acorn Network on September 28th, as they explore the journey of Perth’s local care leaders.
How do others ‘do’? How do we support each other? How have others become leaders?
Be inspired and connect with those who are passionate about our industry’s future. This event is limited to 30 participants. We’ll be there. Get your ticket today.
Significant changes to aged care funding is set to take place in February 2017, with home care package going directly to the consumer – not through the Aged Care Approval Round (ACAR) process.
There are a number of considerations to be aware of, but the need to find the right staff during this period of change is of high priority for providers as we move into a more competitive and consumer driven-market.
3D Recruit is presenting at the ACSWA Symposium:New to Home Care Packages on September 1st on this very topic. Working through what you will need to an employer of choice in this changing, consumer-driven marketplace.
This event is for new entrants that are looking to provide Home Care Packages in the new world and will work through the very basics of what you will need to become a Home Care Package provider. We look forward to seeing you there.
Laura’s presentation at the Aged & Community Services WA’s Workforce Forum (May, 2016) showcased the issues and challenges the aged care industry faces in staff engagement and retention.
With insights into industry trends and the challenges organisations face in engaging their employees, we received fantastic feedback and have been ask to present again in September.
