Transport and logistics businesses to share their views


Online working survey to improve skilled workforce.

By Ruza Zivkusic | March 1, 2011

Transport and logistics businesses are encouraged to participate in a workforce survey that will help retain a skilled workforce.

The New South Wales Transport and Logistics Workforce Advisory Group (TLWAG), together with the Transport and Logistics Centre (TALC), is conducting a transport and logistics workforce gauge, asking businesses to share their views and ideas on managing their workforce.

All information collected will be confidential and businesses will be able to view the responses and compare their performance against others.

The information can assists a business in deciding what works well and what it needs to improve in its workforce management.

Business participation will enable the industry to collect reliable data about the current and potential workforce issues, which will allow TLWAG tailor people-solutions that are responsive to the future workforce needs and industry trends.

By assessing the state of the industry, it is hoped that future skills and labour shortages in the industry are addressed, a NSW Transport spokesman says.

It
will also
help increase employment participation in government workforce programs and
tailor workplace initiatives to promote workforce capability.

"The results of the gauge will also be used to inform and set the direction for future work program of the NSW TLWAG," the spokesman says.

Participants are required to complete the survey by March 31.

The gauge will be active until the end of this year with regular results published by TALC.

For more information, contact TLWAG Program Manager Matt O’Neill on 02 8202 3822.
