The Ford Transition Project has a key focus of assisting workers through the recognition of their current skills and re-skilling, where needed, to ensure they have the right skills to find employment once they leave their current employer.
The Ford Transition Project also has a key role in working with external service and support agencies to ensure workers have as much information as possible available. The Project Co-ordinators will arrange for government and non-government services to come into the workplace to give group information sessions or to meet with individuals, either in the workplace or outside of work.
Typical information sessions that may be useful to workers include information on:
- Employment services available through jobactive providers
- Personal health and wellbeing
- Managing redundancy payments
- Financial education
- Transition to retirement
