People ‘first’

Gforce Employment Solutions' Rob Birch.

Gforce Employment Solutions chief Rob Birch says 2018 Geelong Business Excellence Awards finalists owe much of their success to having “the right team members“.

Rob aligns his business philosophy with entrepreneur Richard Branson, who said: “Success in business is all about people, people, people. Your team is your biggest competitive advantage“.

Like Branson, Gforce recognises that people drive success, which is why its motto is ’Matching businesses with the best people’.

For over 35 years Gforce’s industry experts have provided businesses with quality apprentices, trainees, temporary and permanent staff.

Recently Gforce expanded to provide disability employment services under the name EGF Solutions.

EGF Solutions helps people of all abilities discover talents, harness strengths and find rewarding, long-term employment.

“We’re proud EGF Solutions is part of the Gforce Group and that we’re helping make business more inclusive. Inclusiveness is one way to improve business success,” Rob says.

“The Diversity Council Australia’s Inclusion@Work Index 2017/2018 report found that employees in inclusive work teams were 19 times more likely to be very satisfied with their job compared to employees in non-inclusive workplaces, 10 times more likely to be highly effective in the workplace, and nine times more likely to innovate.

“Gforce is proud to recognise business success by sponsoring the Regional Business category of the 2018 Geelong Business Excellence Awards. We congratulate all award entrants, finalists and winners.”
