Episode notes

A certificate from a “job ready” course isn’t always going to guarantee your new employee will be able to hit the ground running.  

Hayden Heta is the managing director of construction company Wamarra, which helps Aboriginal workers find and stay in long-term employment. 

Hayden shares how he created a meaningful path to induct new employees and unlocks the key strategies you could utilise to create a smooth transition for workers into your organisation.
