On 25th of June 2009 Skills and Workforce Participation Minister Jacinta Allan visited CNC Design head office in Melbourne and congratulated CNC Design on being the first business to affirm its commitment to training for its staff by signing the Brumby Labor Government’s Victorian Skills Pledge.
Ms Allan said the Victorian Skills Pledge was another way the Brumby Labor Government was supporting businesses that invest in training to boost their competitiveness and create jobs.
The Brumby Labor Government introduced the Victorian Skills Pledge to recognise and support local businesses that continue to invest in training. As an innovative, high-tech provider of technology and engineering in the manufacturing sector, CNC Design is a perfect example of the type of enterprises that will benefit from investing in the training of their employees.
“Having the right mix of highly skilled workers has been central to CNC Design’s success in becoming one of the leading providers of machinery automation solutions for manufacturers across Australia and South East Asia.”
“Improving the skills of their employees will be vital as the company expands into the growing renewable energy sector, which CNC Design hopes will enable the creation of 10 to 15 new jobs over the next few years.”
“Melbourne-based advanced engineering company CNC Design is already delivering on its pledge by participating in the $52 million Skills for Growth program, a key part of the Brumby Government’s Securing Jobs for Your Future skills reform package. Through Skills for Growth industry specialists are currently providing free expert advice to assist CNC Design to re-skill some of its engineers for sales and management roles.”
Ms Allan said Victorian businesses had much to gain by follow CNC Design’s lead and continuing to invest in the development of their workforces.
