CMBM Facility Services are in support of the Back to Work program

In appreciation of the efforts CMBM have been putting into support of the Queensland Government’s Back to Work program we recently received a letter congratulating us from the Premier of Queensland and Minister for The Arts – Annastacia Palaszczuk MP.

The Queensland Government’s program is encouraging businesses to create opportunities for those facing disadvantage in the labour market.

In support, CMBM have been increasing efforts to provide employment opportunities to these groups.

Mark Hohn, Managing Director states that “approximately 7% of our front line workforce had barriers to seeking employment, which we have helped them overcome. Strategically we would like to increase this figure to at least 20%.”

CMBM recognise that due to our industry type and front line roles such as cleaning and facilities, we are in an excellent position to provide opportunities to those that may be from a disadvantaged or other minority group such as long term unemployed, have a disability, indigenous candidate, or even more mature workers who are enthusiastic about finding a job, but are struggling to overcome certain barriers to employment.

Job creation is a key component of the CMBM business strategy and we look forward to continuing support of the Queensland Government’s Back to Work program.” Mark Hohn, Managing Director, CMBM Facility Services.

CMBM Facility Services are proud to have partnered up with a number of community based support groups for recruitment in order to achieve our objective and look forward to the positive impacts of this initiative throughout Queensland and within our industry.
