The Hon Greg Hunt MP, Minister for Health and Aged Care released a statement on 30th March 2022 launching a government program to attract more personal care workers to the aged care sector as part of the $18.8 billion five-year response to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
We are delighted to announce that PowerHouse Hub has been recognised in this national strategy as the software platform partner in the consortium with Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA), the Human Services Skills Organisation (HSSO) and MEGT. The consortium has been allocated $21 million to provide personal care workers in Victoria and $2 million in Tasmania.
The Home Care Workforce Support Program, an initiative of the Australian Government, will provide funding over two years from financial year 2021-22 for targeted support to assist the aged care sector to increase the size of the personal care workforce.
Recognised as a leading workforce management software company, PowerHouse Hub will provide an essential component of the strategy. Leveraging a network of Talent Pools, the PowerHouse software builds customised Talent Communities that connect with sourcing partners to find, pre-screen, select, upskill and retain staff.
Digital IDs verify job skills and compliance to create employee mobility with dynamic succession plans. Companies use Private Talent Pools to discover talent in their existing workforce to deliver on internal projects and new job roles.
We are immensely proud that PowerHouse Hub has been recognised as the software solution to drive this ambitious and crucial national strategy for the consortium.
