Employ and support culturally diverse staff

Step Up video series

Step Up: Grow Your Business with New Cultures

The City of Greater Bendigo has produced a series of seven videos called Step Up, for local businesses to demonstrate the ease and benefits of employing culturally diverse jobseekers.

The videos and additional resources have been developed as a guide to help your business attract, support and retain culturally diverse employees.

The first video, “A Recipe for Success,” outlines the importance and impact of having a diverse workforce. It is similar to making sourdough bread. It requires nurturing diverse ingredients and putting meaningful effort into the process to create the best product or workforce:

Each supporting video highlights current measures businesses in Greater Bendigo have already undertaken and how those measures helped to grow and strengthen their business. To view each of the employer videos, click each topic below:
