The award, which was presented during a ceremony in Sydney as part of the first CoAct ConnectUp!, recognised Endeavour Foundation as an employer that gives opportunities to job seekers, provides supportive working environments and promotes retention and development.

Endeavour Foundation, an independent NFP organisation providing support to people with a disability throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, currently has between 40 and 50 people in volunteer, Work for the Dole and paid positions in its retail and industrial divisions.

Endeavour Foundation CEO Andrew Donne said that staff were one of the organisation’s “greatest assets”.

“We already know that the fundamental driver for our staff is delivering services that make a positive difference to people with a disability and their family and carers, so our key focus is on ensuring that they are, in turn, well supported to do so,” Donne said.

“A highly motivated, productive and happy workforce is essential if we are to continue meeting the needs of the people we support.

“While the roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme will of course mean great change for the sector, we believe that – with the right mentoring and support, and an emphasis on training and education – our staff team will be well equipped for this incredible journey.

“This is a wonderful accolade, and one which only strengthens our resolve to ensure that Endeavour Foundation is a great place to work now and into the future. I am incredibly proud of our team and hope that, together, we can continue to make a real difference for the people we support. After all, that’s why we’re all here.”
