A good new story
MOVE is passionate about rail, transport and logistics and the role we play in improving the financial wellbeing of employees working in the industry.
One of the biggest challenges faced by the transport industry is its ageing workforce and the ability to attract younger employees. To help address this issue, MOVE partnered with the Queensland Trucking Association (QTA) to launch GenR8.
GenR8 provides school leavers with a pathway to employment within the transport industry. Through the program, Year 12 students obtain a certificate III in transport and logistics. To prepare students for the workforce, MOVE facilitates financial literacy sessions where students gain skills in budgeting, learn about opening a bank account, superannuation, tax and cyber fraud as well as borrowing money and credit cards.
The program was launched in 2017 at Redbank Plain State High School with the first students to graduate in September. These graduates now have roles within the transport industry.
We are extremely proud to have assisted these students get a great start in their careers as well as assisting the transport industry with its next generation of employees.
We also look forward to future opportunities to work with QTA on this wonderful initiative, and to gain a greater reach into SEQ high schools through the expansion of the program in 2018.
Expansion into Victoria
In 2017 MOVE focussed on expanding our reach to provide benefits to transport employees working in Victoria and we are very pleased to welcome Downer Rail and V-Line as valued corporate partners.
In 2018, MOVE will be working with Downer Rail and V-Line to deliver financial wellness education as part of their employee benefit program.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our members and corporate partners for their ongoing support throughout 2017. We look forward to delivering continued exceptional service and improved products and services to our members in the year ahead.
