Make it Work -Employer of Choice 2012

Client:  AgriFood Skills Australia

The WRC undertook a formative evaluation of the Make It Work (MIW) initiative, including research underpinning the development of the Employer of Choice concept. The research describes the rationales, decision processes and current programs that have underpinned the MIW initiative, and evaluates what and whose needs the program is attempting to fulfil, and how MIW is going about this work. Finally, it situates the MIW program within the existing field of local economic and employment development policy. This addresses the question of how lessons from the MIW programs can be used in other regional employment and economic development initiatives. A key aspect of this involved the evaluation and refinement of the Employer of Choice survey.
