As containment efforts against Covid-19 intensify, Melbourne-based talent acquisition platform LiveHire (ASX: LVH) has been called upon to redeploy Government staff into critical roles.
LiveHire has won a crucial Queensland State Government contract under which its platform will be used to profile, match and engage current employees in order to transition them into new crisis-management roles.
All of the 48 Queensland Government agencies will use LiveHire's platform, while the Queensland Public Service Commission will use LiveHire to support its "BeHere4Qld" project to redeploy over 15,000 public sector employees in a broad Government response to the crisis.
LiveHire CEO Christy Forest says the platform's flexibility made it the ideal choice for the Queensland Government.
"At this important time, we have leveraged the proven functionality of our platform to identify in-demand roles to assign well-fitted, available employees into a newly created Talent Community for the Queensland government," says Forest.
"Perhaps most importantly, our proven speed to implement, our ability to quickly engage and place the staff is crucial to our success with the state. We commend Queensland for its responsiveness to the crisis and its use of the latest technology to engage and communicate with its staff in a way that will deliver meaningful outcomes in service to Australians at this critical time of need."
