Rewarding businesses who employ

COMMUNITY Employment Options Maryborough will hold its inaugural Regional Business Partnership Awards tonight at the Maryborough Brolga Theatre.

The awards, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, acknowledge key local employers and organisations that have supported CEO during the past year.

Five Business Partnership Awards will be given to local employers and five Business Partnership Awards to supporting organisations.

Tomorrow night Community Employment Options will showcase the awards in Hervey Bay at the RSL from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

The organisation has been providing Department of Employment and Workplace Relations-funded Disability Employment Network services for the past 18 years.

Jeannine Harrington said it was not a competition for everyone, as such, but to do with the people CEO dealt with on a day-to-day basis.

“It's for employers who have given people with a disability an opportunity in their business,” Ms Harrington said.

The organisation is a community business with the resources and skills to provide people with disabilities and other disadvantaged job seekers the required support to obtain employment in careers that meet their individual needs, however it would not be possible without the support of local employers.

Community Employment Options will shortly merge with Community Solutions to form a unique partnership further developing community capacity in Regional Queensland by providing quality services, creating partnerships, building community assets and sponsoring a community foundation.

For information call Jeannine Harrington, 4922 6122.
