HR Support Grants for Small Business

By February 13, 2023No Comments2 min read

The role of the QTIC Industry Workforce Advisor is to engage with micro, small and medium businesses in the region to provide advice and support with their workforce challenges and assist them in developing a tailored workforce plan including connecting operators to HR Support Grants for Small Business.

As part of the Industry Workforce Advisor program, QTIC will be working with over 180 Tourism and Hospitality businesses across Queensland assisting them to develop, implement and monitor a workforce plan for their business. It is envisaged that a large percentage of these businesses will apply for a HR Support Grant (up to $5,000) under the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training, Workforce Connect Fund.

Expression of Interest is now OPEN – HR Support Services Provider Database

Given the anticipated volume of micro and small Tourism, Hospitality and Events businesses likely to apply for HR Support grants, QTIC is developing a Supplier List of HR service providers to streamline the grant application process and ensure our members, and those businesses accessing the QTIC Industry Workforce Advisor Program, receive high quality service and advice to support the objectives outlined in their individual workforce plan established in collaboration with the QTIC Industry Workforce Advisor.

We would welcome expressions of interest from Local Service Providers experienced in providing HR services to businesses participating the Industry Workforce Advisor Program will be asked to complete the Expression of Interest – HR Support for Small Business Service Provider. We will then create a list of HR Service Providers for each region for our eligible participating businesses to contact when they develop a workforce plan and receive approval to access their grants.

As the local chamber of commerce, we would appreciate your assistance in distributing this email to your network of HR Support providers and consultants that may be suitable and interested in supporting local Tourism, Hospitality and Events business in your region.

Thank you for your time, I hope you can assist and please feel free to contact me for any further questions pertaining to the QTIC Industry Workforce Advisor program or Workforce Connect Fund.
