As recent emergency events demonstrate, sustainability and business continuity is more than dollars and cents. In the disability sector, it is the people and purpose that underpin sustainable organisations.

This series will examine the changing workforce landscape, its impact on the disability sector and what you need to do to position your organisation to maximise your talent pool. Attracting staff is one side of the coin but in these uncertain times retaining staff and ensuring their values are aligned with your organisation’s values is critical.

Ensuring your staff have clarity around their goals and objectives and how they contribute to your organisation’s success is critical to maximizing performance and accountability in complex times.
