Privileged to be part of LASA’s NEXT GEN Leaders forum

Awesome to be part of such a fantastic initiative ran by Leading Age Services Australia (LASA)



Thank you to all emerging leaders and current senior leaders who attended, and helped launch us into this next exciting phase for our industry.

I loved presenting on HOW best to engage the Next Gen in our industry, and the room was full of great energy and wonderful ideas.

Excellent to have the support of Minister for Aged Care Hon Ken Wyatt on board. I particularly like the photo of #Kenandhisnextgen

Thank you for the opportunity!

Finding the Right Staff in Times of Change

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.

ACSWA Workforce Forum

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.
