Corporate Business Partnerships – Back to Basics
Thursday, 8th November 2001 at 12:11 pm
There has been a major restructure of the Prime Minister’s Community Business Partnerships web site – gone are the Internet-taxing large colour photos and elaborate text. It’s back to basics.
The web site has been re-launched as an On-Line Clearing House for information, resources and ideas aimed at encouraging and assisting the formation of community business partnerships.
A no-nonsense home page now directs visitors to an expanding list of joint projects and in-house research papers and case studies, presented as printable web pages with longer documents available as downloadable files.
The simple and more accessible format is quickly navigated from two drop down menus at the bottom of the page.
The site has added search functions that cover the entire site as well as increased interactivity with the inclusion of a direct response ‘request for information’ form along with the continuingly successful “Information Exchange”.
The Network Relations Manager, Joanne O’Neill says organisations in rural and regional Australia often did not have the computer capacity to navigate the original CBP site.
O’Neill says more enhancements are in the pipeline and are all designed to further the concept of an On-Line Clearing House.
To check out the new web site go to www.partnership-zip.com.au. While you are there have a look at the results of a corporate community project by Pilotlight under the drop down menu “What’s New”.
Pilotlight conducted a “pulse check” of Australian business to discover their thoughts about business and community engagement. Twenty-four businesses of all sizes and from different sectors were interviewed and asked about community involvement.
