At Fitted for Work, we believe a woman needs to be ‘fitted for life’ in order to thrive in her workplace. That’s why we’ve developed the WomanKind program.
This integrated suite of services teaches participants to focus on their overall wellbeing so that she can maximise the opportunities presented through work.
The program consists of woman to woman training, mentor support, guest speaker events, job readiness and presentation workshops. This suite of services can be packaged to create tailored programs to inspire, and support women through their job search journey. WomanKind replaces the Transition to Work and Staying Employed programs.
Woman to Woman Training is an 8 module program, designed to foster personal growth. Delivered by specialised Fitted for Work trainers, this program helps our women to retain employment by building on their job readiness and strengthen a sense of connection to themselves and others.
